Disneyland, part one!
The next morning we went to Disneyland bright and early, and Ramona was most excited about the Sleeping Beauty castle. She kept telling us that we needed to go there first. We took a picture of her in front of the castle, and then went inside. When I was a kid the castle was closed, so it was fun to be able to go inside. That said, there isn't much in there, just the story of sleeping beauty. Ramona found it a little scary (maybe we'll wait to show her that movie till she is older). When we got out, we looked at Ruby just to see that one of her shoes is missing. We had literally been at the park for five minutes. We looked everywhere, but it seemed to have disappeared. Our own little Cinderella. I was pretty irritated, since those were my favorite little European shoes.
The next thing we went to was to meet the princesses, which was Ramona's favorite part. She got to meet Belle, Ariel, and Tiana. Belle was a real pro, she was able to get Ruby to come and sit on her lap (Ruby was a little scared of all people wearing costumes). They were all really good with the kids, Ramona was in a total Princess trance.
After the princesses, we stayed in Fantasyland for a while. We went on "Its a Small World", Storybook land boats, and Dumbo. Then we went on the train the goes around Disneyland, and it was nice to rest our legs. When we got back to the train station, there just happened to be a princess story time. Cinderella told the story of, um, Cinderella, which Ramona loved.
