Amy's dream finally came true. After getting back from Brainerd, she and I ran downtown to the Target Center for "Disney on Ice". Oh my goodness. It was like Walt Disney threw up on the main concourse. I couldn't believe it. I have never seen so many little girls in princess costumes in one place. Unbelievable.
Of course she wanted everything under the sun. It was tough to walk away with just a t-shirt and some cotton candy. Wait ... no it wasn't. The tickets to get in the door were really cheap. When we got to the merchandise tables ... I figured out why. The t-shirt was $20, and the cotton candy was $12!
Yes, I paid $12 for sugar and air.
I told Amy she could have that or a college education. Should I be worried that she opted for the cotton candy?
I guess the smile on her face was completely worth it. We had so much fun. She was in heaven watching all of those princesses skate around on the ice. Her favorite part was the "Tangled" skit at the end.
