The Happiest Place On Earth ...

Guess where we went yesterday? It was a total surprise to the kids. In the morning we asked P if she could do anything at all today what would it be and she said "go to Disneyland." Our surprise was perfect! But of course I had to keep it going and said that Disneyland was more for a special occasion but we could go to the library instead. Of course she obliged–she's such a good girl. She's also very smart and quickly made comment about how we were going in the wrong direction for the library. Long, antsy-pants story short, the kids were ecstatic when they saw Mickey and realized where we were really going. We had so much fun!
The anticipation of getting on Dumbo was intense. Can you tell these are my kids with their stripes on? I even had stripes on and no, it wasn't planned. What can I say? I heart stripes forever.
Cozy Main St. with all the fun shops and pretty flowers still make me nostalgic from my visits as a kid.
The kids got to go on the rockets which to them was a "big kid" ride. I remember that feeling as a kid too. Can't wait to go back.

Can you imagine how their little hearts jumped with happiness? - They will tell all their friends how their parents are SO cool! and you guys are. I haven't been to Disneyland since I was 6, I miss the fried goods.

This gave me the biggest smile! I did the same thing for my daughter, telling her that we needed to run errands for the day. Right before we got to the gate leading into Disney, I asked her if she could do anything today, what would it be. She replied with "Get beads from Michaels and make jewelry". Then I told her to look up (to see giant mouse ears) and said "how about spend the day at the Magic Kingdom. The look on her face was priceless!
