I woke to a super email on Friday - Rebecca from Bunch Family was writing to tell me I won a pack of 4 tickets to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live! at Ontario Place on Saturday. With passes for the VIP pre-show. Super cool!
And, as it turned out, it was super cold! Like late October cold and windy enough that the air show was cancelled at The Ex, and the 2pm Yo Gabba Gabba show was cancelled for fear the sets would fly away. I've gotta say that piece of news didn't thrill me after driving down from Scarborough and paying $25 for parking! But we went in for the VIP party and our 5pm show went ahead as planned. The 2pm tickets were honoured at it too, which was great for those who missed out earlier.
We were dressed for the cold, so didn't have a problem at the show. Little Boo danced up a storm and laughed and squealed and had a blast. Mommy really enjoyed the show too, to be honest. It was a lot of fun and very upbeat. And any show that features balloons, confetti and bubbles, you know will be a hit!
http://www.yogabbagabba.com/ has been a hot request at our house the last two days. He's in love!
As an added bonus, the Hot Wheels colour shifting car was at Ontario Place when we arrived. It was too cold to make the colour shifting work (all the water was freezing!) but he got to play with cars and received a free Hot Wheels Tshirt plus a "collector's guide." Also known as a menu for new toy requests for the next few months... He reads it like a book, so all is well.
And of course, we had free admission to The Ex grounds with these tickets. So we made our second trip of 2010 for some Tiny Tom's and a few games of chance. Little Boo played one of the darts games and won a stuffed dolphin all by himself! (Mommy was trying to hit the red star for a big prize, but the board was too hard and the dart wouldn't stick ... hmmmm)
All in all an amazing day.This was a super first concert experience for my little guy. If you can bring your wee ones to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live! in your city, I totally recommend it. Thank you so much Bunch Family for hosting this contest ... and for picking me :-)
