Disney LIVE

Caleb and I went, last weekend, to a Disney Playhouse LIVE show in Charlotte, NC. I had my classes that Friday and Saturday so I let Caleb stay with my aunt Friday night. I picked him up Saturday night and had already planned to surprise him with tickets for us to go and see some of his favorite characters the next day on stage. As you all know, he's an Einstein nut. He's loved Baby Einstein forever now, and has recently added a few new favorites to his list. As of last year he started watching Little Einstein and became a fan fast. Now, he's really into Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Mickey, at the moment, is by far his favorite. He's watched so much Mickey Mouse over the last few days, he could probably quote you every line from the few shows he's seen. He's also watched a little bit of Winnie the Pooh and Handy Manny but neither of those last longer than five minutes. All of the four shows (as well as the characters that go with each) were at the Disney Playhouse LIVE show. When we got there we got a few toys and snacks and found our seats. That place was pretty packed so we sat down just in time!! Caleb was so focused on the show and with what all was happening he refused to smile for the camera or talk to me about what he was thinking. It started with one show and rotated through until they all met up at a music party at the end. He was the most excited about Little Einstein and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. The others were just okay. Anyways, here are some pictures of our exciting day. He didn't get much sleep the night before so he was so tired during the show and lasted no time once we got in the truck.

Caleb staying focused.

Rocket from Little Einstein comes out.

The audience was asked to help pat their legs to help Rocket take off.

After all of that patting you had to hold your hands up high and yell "blast off"!

Tigger and Pooh

Handy Manny talking to his tools.

Playing with his baton which lit up and possibly trying to fake a smile on me.

Smiling for the camera.

His reaction when he saw Mickey Mouse start up.

Donald Duck, Goofy, Mickey, and Minnie

All the characters dancing to the music that each other brought for the music party.

Caleb playing his trumpet in the truck. One of the things from Little Einstein.

Caleb lasted maybe 5 minutes after we stopped and got lunch. He almost finished his apples.
