How about this lens?

I also found a Sigma 17-35 mm f/2.8-4 EX DG Aspherical Super Wide Angle Zoom lens on Amazon for $189. What do you think of this one for dance recitals, Disney World, Camping trips, Christmas day. etc? Thanks!

You have the kit lens, right? Before you buy any more lenses, spend some time working with the 18-55mm and learn what the different focal lengths give you in terms of coverage. You'll then know if/when you need anything wider than 18mm or longer than 55mm. Also, pay attention to the f-stops you like to use. Then you'll figure out if you need some fast glass (ie f/2.8 zooms or even faster primes)

As for that specific lens, I have no experience with it.
