First trip to Disneyland...

I know what you're thinking.... we go all the time, how can this be a first...

but it was Libi's (and my) first trip with Grammy!

She wanted to wait to go with her until she was 5 and since she will be five in less than a week we decided the time was right to go!

As we walked in, Libi was selected to be the guest conductor for the Disneyland Band.

We have watched the band a thousand times, but this was a BIG first for us!

I missed Libi's name getting announced by the Band Leader, but I got most of the song.

She was so thrilled that they gave her a pin for her good job!

As a super special bonus...

Band Leader Mickey even posed exclusively for some photos with us at the end of the parade route!

We did lots of traditional "first time" photos-- like this one in front of the Partner's statue.

The first ride of the day was Small World, which was still decorated for the holidays.

Then we went to meet the princesses...

Grammy had to pose with Snow White on account of her 7 Dwarfs shirt!

While we didn't see Ariel (who is still Libi's favorite princess),

there were still some good girls there.

On the Jungle Cruise..

Libi was shocked and frightened, like she had never been on the ride before. I'm going to chalk it up to the fact that she was overdue for her nap.

We remedied that on a bench in front of the castle and then we were ready to go!

Grammy's feet and knees were hurting so we decided to wrap things up early,

but we couldn't leave without seeing Captain EO...

or a ride on the train!

Ron and I got Fastpasses for Star Tours while Libi napped, so we left Grammy on a bench and did one final ride as a family. That ride just keeps getting better!!! We went to two new places AND got to see Yoda!

All-in-all it was a really fun day at the Park!
