The Happiest Girl on Earth

This is the face of our sweet little girl going through the gates of Disneyland for the first time! At least the first time she will remember. We brought her when she was a baby but THIS was HER wonderful, magical, glee-filled first time!!!

And what a fantastic first time it was!!! More pictures to come later, after we get them developed. Forgot the digital, so we bought a couple of disposables and snapped a couple with the cellphones. She was in heaven ALL DAY LONG! So was I really. I just love watching her get so excited! That's the best fun of all!

We got a HUGE hotel room and made a weekend of it. We swam, we shopped, we ate breakfast with The Fairy Godmother, Captain Hook, Chip and Dale, Winnie The Pooh and Tigger too!!! Hoohoohoohoo! (ahem, sorry) And we found out that our rough and tumble dare-devil little 5 year old isn't so fearless when it comes to some of the rides offered at the Happiest Place on Earth! The Snow White ride scared the H-E-double hockey sticks out of her! So when we took her on the Alice in Wonderland ride she was prepared and stuck her head in my armpit the entire ride and wouldn't look up! Poor girl.

So where does one go when trying to convince your dear daughter that not ALL the rides at Disneyland are scary? Yep... It's a Small World. Then next stop Toon Town and a visit with Minnie Mouse and everything was all better. What a time we had! So much fun we are planning the next trip already!

And in the end when the day was over...

The Princess slept.
