Aladdin and other fun stuff

I won tickets to see Aladdin awhile back and we finally went to the show. It was really cute and had some funny lines in it that pertained to today. The kids really enjoyed it too. Peanut was a little restless towards the end but all in all I think she did pretty good. Before the show started I told the kids that there was going to be fog and not to get scared. When the show was over Red asked me, "Mom where was the frog coming out? Did I miss it?" He thought I was talking about a frog! I explained what fog is and he then understood. Also after the show 3 character come out and sign autographs and get pictures taken. Here are the pictures we got!
Peanut is scared!
spontaneous photo!
The Genie picture!

The kids were a little disappointed that Jasmine or Aladdin didn't come out but the Genie did! I was frustrated while we waited in line for the Genie. This lady with a walker kept running into me and her daughter was jabbing me in the back with the corner program. I wanted to turn around and yell tell them to give me some personal space. It was starting to ruin my day but after we left and I was able to decompress I was fine. They were so rude the whole time stepping on me and then when we got to the Genie the lady didn't stay back so we could take a decent picture it was a race for J to snap it so she wasn't in the picture. Seriously women back off! As we walked away I hear the daughter tell the Genie that her mom was 90 something years old...way old enough to know better than to be so rude. We had packed a picnic lunch and ate outside it was beautiful out. We walked around and watched a few free shows. One of the shows the guy called Red up and instead of doing what he asked he did some kind of crazy walk/crawl across the stage, what a goof ball. I also went to see if our picture is still at the Children's Museum and it is, so excited. When we were done there we went to the shoe store and bought the kids new shoes. They are going to be wearing them around the house to wear them in until our trip. They are the kids school shoes so we don't want them getting trashed. I can't believe how much shoes cost! And to buy 4 pairs at a time is rough, ha. That was pretty much our fun filled day. Minus the rude people :)

Why didn't that lady just back off! I can't stand folks like that:P

The Genie looked a little creepy (I suppose blue body paint will do that)...Glad you had fun:)

Oh you got some great pictures!
It always surprises me when Selah is afraid of anything because most of the time she's such a fearless kid- I imagine it might be the same for you with Peanut, since she and Selah seem to be quite similar, LOL!

Looks like a really fun time! Minus the rude people...

Great photos! I can't believe how much your kids have "grown up" in the time that I've been following your blog. Time sure flies! Hope you're enjoying these last fleeting days of summer.
