Sneak Peek: Disneyland

We had a wonderful day at Disneyland on Monday! My only experience with Disney theme parks was a trip to Disneyland in California when I was 8 years old. I have some memories of that day, but not a lot of distinct memories. So it was like I was enjoying Disneyland for the first time when we took the girls this week! I was so impressed with the whole park--beautiful landscaping, such friendly staff, everything so clean and family-oriented and FUN! If you can believe it, our family arrived about about 15 minutes before opening and we were some of the last to leave, 12 hours later! The girls seemed to get a second wind just before supper and were asking to do more activities, so we stayed for the evening and through a special fireworks show as well.

It's already late tonight, so I'll just post a few pics here to give you a sneak peek of our day. Enjoy!

Clara Anne tells Princess Sleeping Beauty how old she is. The princesses took so much time with the girls and were so sweet! They all looked fresh as a daisy while the rest of us non-royalty were already sweaty and hot! Clara Anne really blossomed under their kind attention.
Chloe was feeling a little shy, but Princess Belle invited our whole family to take a picture together. Belle was the first princess we met; Clara Anne was a bit taken aback by the wonder of it all at this point still. Cinderella gave Clara Anne a "princess kiss" on her cheek.
And we saved the first princess for last: Snow White.
The teacups were a favorite: we had skipped it earlier in the day and Clara Anne asked specifically to go back and do it. Then the line was short so we did it again! The girls loved it!
More pictures and details of the day soon!

Thanks for the tip on how to eat tomatoes. Mmmmmmm. . . I'll have to try it as soon as I get more from the farmer's market!
