We were able to see Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy at the Canadian Tire Centre here in Ottawa on Friday night and we had a great time!

We don't take our girls to see movies at the theatre very often, but we made an exception for Disney's "Big Hero 6" when it was on the big screen!

With all the time we've been spending inside lately, it's nice to have some new DVDs from NCircle Entertainment to entertain us! Old favourites and new friends are keeping my 3 year old happy during these cold winter afternoons.
