Today we took Libi to Disneyland for the 29th time!!!We went for a very special reason today-- to help Benji celebrate his first visit to Disneyland (and to see Sami and Erik too!)Our first stop was the Critter breakfast at Storyteller's Cafe in the Grand Californian. Libi enjoyed her Mickey waffles very much-- Mommy didn't enjoy the syrup dripping all over the place :)We got to see Brother Bear, Rafiki, Chip, Dale and Meeko. Benji did really well for his first Disney character experiences.While they checked into their room we ran into the park to get in line to see Tinkerbell.While the wait was long, we enjoyed our time together!We first met Silvermist and then....Tinkerbell. We simply had to see her this visit since we missed her last time!
We met back up with Sami and went with them on Ben's first ride: Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. On our way to see Mickey we stopped for a photo shoot in front of the castle!It's probably been 25 years since Sami and I have been to Disneyland together, but we had such a good time. The kids had a great time too and spent lots of time playing, hugging, and holding hands!Both of the kids loved their time with Mickey!!!The big kids enjoyed it too :)After a play break in Goofy's garden in Toontown we went to Small World. Libi is still talking about all of the things she saw in this attraction-- she loves it!! Ben was so fun to watch during this-- he greatly enjoyed himself!Ben got his first set of ears-- which he only wore for a moment...before Libi took her turn. She tried to convince Ben to wear them, but he really wasn't into looking like Mickey.Ben fell asleep so we went to the Rainforest Cafe for lunch.While we waited we were lucky enough to see the bird show...which Lou really liked. She was especially tickled by the bird saying "Hello" to her. It was such a nice day with good friends!!!
