For the past two years we have had the privilege of enjoying Disneyland passes (thanks Mom and Dad). Our passes expire in February and we are not renewing them until April (at least that is the "plan"). Anyways we are trying to get as much Disney in as possible and so we have planned several "DISNEY DAYS" in the next couple of weeks. Today was the first of them and we met some of our friends from church there. ("We" being the girls and I). We had a marvelous time and Bekah kept saying......"I HAVE NEVER GONE TO DISNEYLAND WITH THIS MANY FRIENDS, MOMMY!!!!!" She was excited, to say the least.
Anna is really starting to want to be one of the big kids and anytime they are out and walking she wants to be doing the same. We went on "It's a Small World" (a favorite). Now in my experience.... most kids find this ride totally enthralling even somewhat soothing. When Bekah was a baby she would sit in awe of the classic ride and just stare at every detail and not move an inch. NOT ANNA!!!!!! She just sees the 15 minute "cruise around the world" as an attempt to hold her back. About...... hmmmmmm........ 1 minute into it she had had enough and was not at all happy that mommy would not let her get out of the boat. GOSH! You can't keep this child still, she would have GLADLY jumped overboard and taken a swim!
In the past ....... Bekah has been somewhat curious but overall not willing to stand with characters (unless it is a princess or Mickey or Minnie) and get her picture taken. However, today she told me...... "Mommy..... I think I am ready to go say hi to Eyore....." (in a very serious tone) So we did. Such a brave girl. :)
On our way out of the park we stopped for a little refreshment. I just wanted to show you my child's skills. Look at her with that big girl cup and guess what...... no spills :).
So today was a fun day. And we are looking forward to several more "Disney-days" ahead. Should be fun!!!
