Vacation Flashback

We're going on vacation tomorrow, and to get in the mood, I decided to do a flashback post today. These pictures are from Thanksgiving weekend 2005. Any guesses where we are going this weekend??

Our first evening there, Bampa took Sareny to Downtown Disney while the rest of us were napping. He thought it was a little cold, so he bought this cute little Minnie Mouse sweatshirt for her. (I did pack her a jacket, but he didn't take it with him on their walk.) I remember being a little shocked by the pricetag!
Here's my little cutie in front of Matterhorn. She has grown so much since then!


This was the last time we were able to go to Disneyland with the whole crew. Sareny was still the only grandchild, although Isaac was on his way.
Since Cassidy was not visible in the last photo, she gets her own spotlight. Well, I guess she has to share it with random guy, okay, and Sareny too, but oh well. I seem to be lacking pictographic evidence that James was on this trip too, but rest assured that he was. (Sorry Bames.)

For our Magic Morning, we took Sareny to Fantasyland with Grammy Jo while the rest of the group hit Space Mountain and Matterhorn. I was glad Grammy spent that fun time with us!

Disneyland was celebrating 50 years, their Golden Anniversary, and we got to ride on the golden Dumbo and golden carousel horse that they had just for the year. We raced for them as soon as we got through the lines!

We have some fun memories from Disneyland over the years. I have loved it since I was a kid and enjoy watching my kids experience the magic and excitement for themselves.

That makes me so excited to go! Sareny was so little then! I've always loved that picture of her by the Matterhorn. And in that last picture on the golden horse she looks like Isaac! See you soon!
