Disney in the Hizzey (on Ice)

My mom and I were brave enough to take three young children to a 7:30pm on a weeknight presentation of Disney on Ice. We called in advance to secure handicapped accessible seats, to no avail. We called our local MDA office to see if they had any ideas, and they called around and hooked us up with a point of contact at US Airways Center. Boo-to the frickin-yah!

Let me take a timeout right this minute to give props to Marlo and Ashish with US Airways Center. They don't know me from Adam, but they took the call from the MDA and promised to take care of us and they did. Upon arrival, they traded our regular seat tickets for wheelchair accessible tickets on the spot, and then personally escorted us to our seats (this is a long process, considering the respective ages of my wheelchair drivers). When the show was over, Ashish came to us to personally escort us to our car in the garage. I didn't pay extra for this. I didn't expect this. But I appreciated it so very much. Well done, US Airways Center--well done. (And I didn't even have to flash my US Airways Mastercard monthly statement or my husband's Dividend Miles Gold membership card.)

Grandma was a sucker and bought light-up spinny toys for the kids.

I love this photo. I don't have many pics of me and my mom, and even fewer pics of me and my mom and my kids.

Oh yeah--there was something going on down there on the ice, too.
