Disney on Ice Celebrates 100 Years of Magic was Spectacular for kids and adults.

Disney on Ice Celebrates 100 Years of Magic was an amazing show to watch as a kid or even an adult. We were lucky enough to go to Friday night’s showing and our entire family had a wonderful time.

We sang along to 24 of our favorite Disney songs. I especially enjoyed Genie.

My daughter was in a trance the entire time!

photo 3The look on all of their faces was just priceless. It is something that I will always remember. I absolutely love seeing how much fun they are having. They all looked at me in disappointment when it was time for intermission. I had to explain to each of them that this was like halftime in a football game.

I was extremely pleased at the various characters that made an appearance, including Pinocchio since it was a movie made so much longer ago than the ones my kids are used to.

The princesses were my youngest daughter’s favorite:

My oldest daughter really enjoyed the performance by The Incredibles:

We also enjoyed the appearances of  Stitch, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Mulan and the beautiful skating in The Lion King.

I would definitely recommend seeing this spectacular show. It was such an amazingly wonderful experience that I am so grateful that my kids had the chance to experience. Disney on Ice surely created the magic that is found in my little one’s hearts.

tile_monsterjam-pgh-tile

We had the amazing opportunity to attend Monster Jam 2014 this year. It provided massive entertainment for my kids. I, unfortunately, was unable to go but my husband and kids went. When they got home, they couldn’t stop talking about the tricks they saw.

My son really likes zombies. Go figure.

But then he goes nuts about dogs. photo 2 (2)

Look at how high that is! Amazing!!!

Monster Jam is really a great, family-oriented show that is fun, amazing and packed full of excitement. My family and I have gone for 2 years in a row and this year, my kids really looked forward to going. They loved seeing the commercials and asking me how long until they get to see it in person.

I was, however, able to attend the Superheroes & Sweethearts Valentine’s Party on February 13th, the day before Monster Jam began. We were able to see Iron Man and meet the driver, Lee O’Donnell. We even got his autograph and took a picture with him.

My kids had a blast getting balloon animals, free snacks and creating superhero-inspired Valentine’s Day crafts. See my daughter showing off her crafts? She had so much fun!

This year, Monster Jam teamed up with Tickets for Kids in an effort to raise 1,000 tickets to send underprivileged youth and their families to Monster Jam. For every person that attended this event, Monster Jam donated one ticket to Tickets for Kids for the show in Pittsburgh. How awesome was that?!?! I was very pleased to see such a HUGE turnout!
