This is one of the awesome groups I got to go with. Of course, this was in the morning, so we don't look exhausted yet. Lol
This is the two little munchkins with the other group posing with Cinderella's Fairy godmother. Aren't they freakin precious?
The next few are from the amazing Paint the Night Parade. It's kind of the reincarnated version of the electric parade, for those of you who know what I'm referring to.
These were the coral dancers that danced in front of the Little Mermaid float. They were so cool!
(Side note: can you imagine how in shape you have to be to dance through the whole parade with the heavy light equipment on? I am still thoroughly impressed.)
The Little Mermaid herself. She was darling and did a fantastic job. Plus, the float she was on was incredible.
It's Slinky! And Woody! Best Cowboy around.
This picture makes my heart ache a little. When we were very small, my parents used to put me and my brother in our stroller and buy these exact Mickey cookies from the corner bakery to eat while we watched the fireworks. So, right before the parade and fireworks, I got some coffee and a Mickey cookie. It made me tear up, but it also made me smile.
And of course, there was a lot more to the trip, but these were just a few of the memories I was able to capture on camera. And last but not least, my favorite picture.
As I stood and said farewell to Disneyland, I was left in a state of awe. It amazes me what one man was able to do with an imagination and a mouse. Walt Disney had the heart, spirit and imagination of a child. Because of this, he was able to change the world. I was teary eyed and full of wonder when I thought about the many children, adults, artists and so on that have been inspired by one man's incredible legacy.
