We here at Mommy Poppins love all our events equally. The Christmas lights, the boat parades, the holiday-themed train rides. What's not to love? It's just that we love some a little more equally than others.
Like Disney on Ice. The touring ice show is the perfect match of world class athleticism and stunning artistry, paired with the most beloved characters known to childhood. Oh, how we love Disney on Ice.
And the Lythgoe Family Panto productions: Broadway caliber showmanship paired with absolute inability to take anything, least of all itself, seriously. Laughs and awestruck gasps and this year the Wizard of Oz played by, what now, Kermit the Frog?!? Hold me, Kermie, I think I may get the vapors!
Do we love the latest Disney Animation feature, breaking the internet and ruling the box office, currently holding strong as the favorite movie of all time in our household? Or do we love the (don't try to tell me it's not real) Virtual Reality experience that takes us INTO that movie, so that we are running with, talking to, and shooting milkshakes at our favorite characters from the movie because we are IN IT? How do we choose? Why should we? If there's one thing we've learned as mothers, it's that there is more than enough love to go around.
Keep reading for our choices for this weekend, all equally loved, including the ones that are loved more.
