And where do you think she wanted to go for her birthday?
If you guessed Disney, you are correct. Sorry...no prize this time ;)
We went to the Magic Kingdom for birthday number 2. She was lucky enough to have her best friend (who is also a member of a Disney family...another blog) with us for the day. The park was beautifully decorated for Halloween. Wait times were at a crazy all time low for the day & the weather was great! Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.
Princess Peanut was so excited to be there that day, she decided to stop & actually pose for pictures in front of the train station! Normally, she wouldn't stand still for anything. But on this day, she decided to pose...for 15 minutes!! It was so cute :) Pink Tiara and all, she was ready to rule the land for the day.
We rode all of her favorite rides & did all of her favorite things...TTA, Buzz Lightyear, Haunted Mansion. We visited Minnie & Mickey's houses. Rode the tea cups. Sailed on Its A Small World. Took Pictures with Stitch. Carried napping babies onto Pirates (you *can't* leave the MK without riding Pirates). Caught a monorail to Epcot & watched the fireworks. Ice Cream at McDonalds on the way home.
In all of that, after about 10 hours, 6 kids & 2 parks , the moment of the day came when leaving Its A Small World. She wanted to walk to the stroller, so since she is all "grown" now at 2, I held her hand & let her walk. About 1/2 way to the stroller parking, she started jumping up & down. As I stopped to look down at her, she jumped on my leg, wrapping her arms & legs around my leg, and just hugged me with the biggest smile on her face. Its those kinds of smiles & these kinds of moments that keep me going back to Disney again & again .
Oh & btw, she wore the tiara ALL day...even napped in it :)
Nothing like spending the day in the park with your best friend on your birthday!
