Disneyland 2013

We have wanted to go to Disneyland for awhile now and the opportunity came up for us to go with some friends.  We had a great time and it was fun for Lily to have a friend with her to make those long lines seem a little shorter.

Lily was so excited to see all the characters and meet her very favorite princess--CINDERELLEE.

While we were checking in Lily and Lucy spent some time is these adorable thrones watching some classics.

At dinner we had the balloon artist make Lily a Cinderella figure that she played with all through dinner and then whenever we were in the hotel room--best $10 we spent for the week was his tip.

After dinner we went to talk to Mater and ride some rides then it was off to World of Color.

Day 2 was full of classic Disneyland rides and chance meetings with cast members. For some reason I don't have a ton of pictures from this day--they must be on Nate's phone.

Day 3 was meet everyone day.  Lily dressed her best and wore her glass slippers so she could meet the princesses.

This was about the cutest Cinderella I have ever seen.  While she was talking to the people in front of us she kept looking over at Lily.  Lily was so excited she could barely contain herself.

Lily was so excited about her shoes she had to show them to everyone.

Tinkerbell and Fawn were darling. Lily asked Tinkerbell about Terrance and wondered where he was.

After that is was off to see Mickey, Minnie and friends.

This is in Minnie's house.  Lily loved it there.

For lunch we went to Ariel's Grotto and got to meet more princesses.  It got to the point that after each one left our table Lily would ask, "and who is next?"

After lunch Lily changed out of her princess dress and we got serious about doing more rides and watching more parades.

It was a very long day and our sweet little princess fell asleep on the walk back to the hotel.

This might be one of my most favorite pictures from the trip.  A little princess with her daddy.

Last day.  On the last day we went to breakfast at the hotel and then headed home.

It was a long /short 4 days, but we had so much fun.  I will post the videos in another blog post.
