Toy Story 3 on Ice!

On a bit of a whim, we bought tickets to go see Toy Story 3 on Ice last night! We knew it was going to be a long late night, so I tried to get Carrie to nap in the afternoon.... Yeah right... After a late afternoon snack, we headed up into town and parked to ride the lightrail into Phoenix. I was excited. I know lots of people ride metros, subways and lightrails all the time, but for me, it's a little treat and usually means we're heading into see a baseball game, a concert, or something like that. So I still get a little giddy. :)

A few minutes before we got to the lightrail parking lot I turned and saw Carrie totally asleep in her carseat... I was a bit worried about how the rest of our late night might go...

But the second she heard the lightrail pull up, she was awake and as excited as me!

Once we got to the show we went to the souvenir stand. Though we were there to see Toy Story and there were plenty of Toy Story themed toys she could have chosen, she chose a Minnie Mouse doll instead. At least she's happy about it!

We got concession stand hotdogs for dinner. Yummy! Much to my disappointment, cotton candy was only being sold by the guys who walk through the crowd and we didn't have any cash. I was really looking forward to it... :(

We were surprised when Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald Duck showed up to open the show!

Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head with the army men

Jessie and Bullseye (who I'm pretty sure is two different people on ice skates working together- amazing!

Woody and the crew putting on a show!

The crane-machine aliens dancing with Buzz Lightyear!

A couple of rows in front of us was a very good sport of a dad who came dressed up as Woody and was more than happy to pose with several children during intermission! Carrie loved it!

Ken and Barbie were a ton of fun to watch!

By the time we got on the train after the show it was 10pm. And we were all super tired! Especially since we'd been fighting colds all week. We got lucky and found a spot where we could lean back and snuggle for the long ride home.

We had a lot of fun celebrating an early birthday present with our almost three-year-old. :)
