MLP FiM LIVE in Saskatoon

This was such an overwhelming experience in so many ways.  If you have a loved one who’s all about Friendship is Magic you have got to find a way to get to one of these live performances.  Lily-Ann was so gleefully happy it was just awesome.  And seeing her that ecstatic filled me with a ridiculously alarming amount of joy.  LOL  Like, almost tearfully so.

Gasping with excitement upon seeing her hero, Rainbow Dash, emerge from the crowd to approach the stage.

You can hear Lily-Ann calling to Rainbow Dash, and then encouraging her:

Scroll down to the comments to see the video that is supposed to be here.  WordPress is messing up in a major way lately when it comes to embedding youtube clips.  The second clip below is working fine, but this one is just coming up as a duplicate of the second.  So I’ll paste it into a comment instead.  Sorry about the headache.

Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, and Apple Jack – the three ponies who came to Saskatoon for the Prairie leg of the live tour.

Only three of the “mane six” made it out to Saskatoon for the shows, but it was still super cool.  Okay, I’ll admit, it would have been at least 20% cooler if Pinkie Pie had been here too – after all, it was a little weird having the other ponies do her songs (and changing lyrics from “Pinkie” to “filly”).  But we were still super stoked when they did the girl’s and my very favourite song from season one.  😀  And yes, if you watch the video, that voice you hear singing along through most of it is the girl.  We know all the words.  😉

All in all?  An amazing, unforgettable experience.  So worth the hour of sitting on the hard mall floor prior to it starting to ensure we were right at the front.  My body was crying, but so was my heart – and my heart was much much louder.

Sneaking up to one of the banners to use it for a photo backdrop.  Super awesome!

We snuck up to the stage after everyone left for a quick photo-op. 😉
BEST PHOTO EVER!!!

Journal Your Journey – scrap along with me

My challenge for March has been posted, and I thought I’d take a minute to write a bit of a blog post about it too.  For those of you who aren’t aware, my challenge this year is a journal challenge.  I’ve wanted to create a scrapbook about me for some time now.  But generally when I sit down to work on a layout I let my photographs speak for themselves, and it’s almost always about the kid.  So it really is a challenge for me to sit down and write a little something about ME.  It’s important though, and so I’m writing about me FOR Lily-Ann.

Each month I’ll provide a journal prompt, so if you’d like to take the challenge along with me, you’ll have a book of your own finished after the year is over.  This month I scrapped a page about how the girl and I share a love of My Little Ponies.
