A favorite gift in our household are “memory” items. Since early in our relationship, Trent & I have skipped on physical gifts and selected things to do and create memories for our family instead. At Christmas, he surprised us with tickets for our family to attend a show at the Durham Performing Arts Center – a first for all of us.

This past Saturday morning we all dressed up a bit and headed out for the theatre to see Mickey’s Magic Show.
We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but it was wonderful! The show was nearly 2 hours with a brief intermission in the middle. Mickey, Minnie, Donald & Goofy were all there along with 2 magicians and several of the princesses plus Alice, the White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts, etc.
Our seats were just 4 rows back from the stage and at a lower walkway. During one part of the show, Goofy came off stage and right up to us giving a “hello” wave to Elise and a high five to Dylan. Along with this interaction, the lights, sounds, and acting, both kids were captivated the show. Elise finally fell asleep during the final 3o minutes, but Dylan stayed eyes glued to the action and cheered loudly when the cast came out to take their bows.
Linking up with Mommy & Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
