Saturday With Mom

With the exception of taking my mother-in-law to her hair appointment today, I spent the day with my mom. We went to Disney on Ice at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, then shopping, and then dinner.

The skies looked daunting so we opted not to take the downtown trolley along channelside after the performance and headed back to Pinellas county where the wheather was perfect. Hot, but perfect :)

Even the street musicians were in a Disney mood playing "When You Wish Upon A Star" and "It's A Small World Afterall". lol

Since the St. Pete Times Forum is home to the Tampa Bay Lightening, there was lots of hockey stuff - photos, paraphenalia, and this guy. You were supposed to get behind and put your face in the mask but those photos didn't turn out too hot.

We had "rinkside dining" tickets meaning that we spent the preshow time in the XO club and enjoyed a buffet and beverages. Funny, it was kid's buffet with spaghetti, mac-n-cheese, tater tots, chicken tenders, tacos, and for the adults, ceasar salad. Oh, and cookies and punch for dessert.

Here's the lounge and the buffet. Pretty dark in there. Lots of TV's. There was a bar on the other side but mom and I were soda pop drinkers so we didn't take advantage of that feature.

The stage and ice just before the show started. We are on the ground level in the second row back, first and second seat from the center aisle so our seats were pretty much perfect.

It was titled something like Mickey & Minnie's Adventure so it started with them dressed in safari gear. It was Lion King oriented but my photos didn't turn out :(

Pluto the dog, not the planet. (snicker, snicker)

Daisey Duck too!

The next act was under the sea with the little Mermaid.

Then they went to Hawaii where we met Stitch

Next was London for Peter Pan

And the grand finale with characters from each act.

A Snapper In the Hood

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
