A Wrinkle in Time Comes to The Rose Theater + Win Tickets!

Pinterest

AWrinkleinTime

Do you remember reading A Wrinkle in Time? The amazing season continues as this award-winning story will be brought to life in an imaginative adaptation from the book by Madeleine L’Engle at The Rose Theater!

AWrinkleinTime-Rose1

A Wrinkle in Time is an exciting thriller with fantastic special effects!

It’s a “dark and stormy night” when the very strange Mrs. Whatsit comes to see Meg with frightening news: her father, a gifted scientist, has been kidnapped! With the help of some rather unique characters, Meg teams up with her younger sibling, Charlie Wallace, and her friend Calvin, to travel through the universe to try to put her family back together again.

Recommended for Older Children

Due to the sophisticated and sometimes scary nature of the show, A Wrinkle in Time is recommended for children older than 7, especially those who love science fiction!

Opens November 1st, and runs through November 16, 2014

Performances: Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m, and Sundays at 2 p.m., plus an additional show on Sunday, November 2 at 5 p.m.

High-Flying Exciting Fun Disney Junior Live Pirate & Princess Adventure!

Pinterest

photo_3454

We recently had the opportunity to attend Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate & Princess Adventure at Mid America Center in Council Bluffs. If you have a Jake fan, Sophia fan, or both, your child is not going to want to miss this show!

Disney Junior Live Pirate & Princess Adventure

Doc McStuffins special pre-show happens 10 minutes before show time (so make sure you get to the venue early).
In the first part of the show, Sofia and her family prepare for a royal celebration that helps us all learn the true meaning of being a princess! Sofia has to introduce the friendship festival and figure out what gifts to give her friends. My daughter loved the book balancing scene at the Royal Academy!

There is a special appearance by Cinderella, where she inspires the little princesses that what matters most is what is on the inside. We laughed when Sofia was attempting to make a cake and made way too many, causing a huge mess. Towards the end of the act, bubbles blew into the audience below us. Sofia was able to bring a smile upon all of the princesses in the audience, as she shared that no matter what gifts you give, they should come from the heart.

Mickey and Minnie led us to a brief intermission before the second part of the performance started. Jake, Izzy, and Cubby battle Captain Hook to unlock treasure hidden inside a mysterious volcano. Everyone enjoyed the exciting and adventure-filled scenes as Jake and his friends discover what it takes to be a true hero. A special appearance by Peter Pan flew on to stage to help Jake who was trapped by Captain Hook. My children loved watching the pirates fly through the air. In the end Jake is able to save Captain Hook.

The kids were completely engaged in the entire show! The whole performance is about 90 minutes long which is perfect for the ages in the audience.

Bellevue Berry and Pumpkin Ranch + Ticket Giveaway 2014! – ENDED

Pinterest

BellevueBerryandPumpkinRanch-1

Disclosure: Many thanks to Bellevue Berry and Pumpkin Ranch who provided the gift certificates for the giveaway and for my family to facilitate the review, and is a Featured Omaha Area Pumpkin Patch.

The Bellevue Berry and Pumpkin Ranch offers many kid-friendly attractions during the day, and more scary attractions at night. On our recent visit, we enjoyed a beautiful Fall day. The kids loved the playground with the multiple slides and small forts with little hideouts and plenty of areas to climb through.

BellevueBerryandPumpkinRanch-5

The kids enjoyed playing in the pirate ship and swing, climbing in the Bounce House, and seeing the barn animals and another big slide.

BellevueBerryandPumpkinRanch-4

The hayrack ride offered a fun way to see the entire area, including the path of the haunted hayride. I think that would be pretty scary at night!

BellevueBerryandPumpkinRanch-3

One of our favorite activities of the day was The Amazing Lindy. His magic tricks were fun to watch, engaging for the children, and impressive for the adults. My husband and I both wondered often how he did some of the tricks! Be sure to stay afterwards as he does some close-up magic tricks with the kids. They are still talking about the card trick and trying to recreate it!

BellevueBerryandPumpkinRanch-2

The Ranch of Terror offers no live scares during the daytime, but even with the lights on, it was still a little scary with loud noises and things jumping out at you.

BellevueBerryandPumpkinRanch-6

We loved this little swing right by the campfire area, offering a picturesque and relaxing atmosphere after a fun day.
