{ disneyland here we come...lord help ME }


As some of you may recall I have ranted on this blog about Disney's "takeover" of our house and daughter...Sam is fascinated by everything princess, mermaid (we even own a movie called mermaidia), fairy, and gulp, even barbie. So when friends of ours mentioned they were taking their kids to Disneyland at the end of April for a long weekend, we smirked and said, have fun...we are going camping in Utah that weekend. But then I started thinking....that's what I want to do. That's what Will wants to do. But what would Sam choose if she had a choice about our travel plans? So, we decided to go for it. Booked tickets and a hotel last night and we are going to surprise her for her 4th birthday!! We aren't going to say anything other than we are going to sunny California. She doesn't know that a land exists full of real princesses and castles and games and sugar. But she will. And it will be worth every penny and our agony over Disney Corp. to see the look on her face when we arrive. Life is short and these ARE the moments to remember forever.

OMG!!!! We are having the exact same conundrum...to go or not to go when your kids are totally consumed with Princess Mania and you want to avoid the machinations of Disney Unlimited!!! Yeah though for Samme!!! What an AWESOME present. Abby and Izzie will be soooo excited to hear that she is going to see Cinderella et al. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
