Natalie’s singing group auditioned to perform at Disneyland. After they were accepted and ran the gauntlet of extra Saturday-morning practices for 3 months, we packed up the whole fam and went along. All those practices paid off.
Choral Collection gave a wonderful show. We were so proud of their enthusiasm and professionalism. After all that hard work, we were glad the rest of the time was ours to play.
We spent 2 days in Disneyland and 1 day in California Adventure. While there, we stalked many costumed–I mean “we made a lot of new friends. . .” The Disney characters left their marks in our harts and the girls’ homemade autograph books.
Katie was lucky to celebrate her 6th birthday in “The Magic Kingdom”.
Two months ahead, I carefully planned a birthday surprise and was disgusted to discover that I packed my recipts–not the vouchers for our lunch reservation with the princesses. Luckily everything worked out after I ran from customer service booth to office to who-knows-where-else, shedding tears and cursing my ineptitude under my breath (while Chris entertained the troops in “Bugs life”). Photo ID and my receiptswere enough… We finally lunched with the princesses which was, as you can imagine, heaven for our girls. And Spencer didn’t come off too badly himself–as our little napping prince got kissed by Sleeping Beauty herself.
