Riding the LRT and finding my Disney princess

Last Saturday we decided to take part in the  Grand opening of the Ottawa LRT and take a ride to the Rideau Centre for some shopping and adventures. My grandson Gabriel who is an avid train enthusiast absolutely loved it! It was so sweet to watch him take it all in…especially watching the trains coming in the opposite direction!

We ended up at the Disney store and  I glanced at a wall of Disney Princesses wondering which one closely represented me.  At a quick glance I didn’t really identify with any of them until I did a bit of research and discovered there IS a Deaf Disney Princess. Her namWall full of Disney Princess at the Disney storee is Gabriella. She is a recurring character in Disney’s 1992-93 television series The Little Mermaid. She is a deaf Latina mermaid who communicates in sign language; her friend Ollie, an octopus, serves as her interpreter. Pretty neat eh!!

After supper in the Byward Market at The Aulde Dubliner we headed to the St-Laurent mall…On our way, we ran into  Councillor Jeff Leiper (Kitchissippi Ward) who gave Gabe some awesome O-train stickers.
I suggest everyone go out and ride it at least once, it’s quite impressive!
