PSF and a moment to remember

A few days ago I blogged about the fact that we went to Disney last week. (And, yes, I realized I have not made good on my promise of more pictures.)

While visiting the Magic Kingdom, Melody had one of those moments in life that she we will remember forever.

Yes. She met the Disney Princesses.

She saw her favorite princess, Aurora, first.

I was trying not to cry and she was just completely speechless.

Princess Aurora asked her name and Melody just stared.
She then asked her age and Melody said, "uhhh."
And finally Melody just hugged and hugged her.
She found her voice as we were walking away, turned and said, "I love your crown!"

Next was Cinderella. I think the shock had worn off by then and Melody was actually able to carry on a conversation.

By the time she met Belle, it was as if she was meeting a fellow monarch.

Jack was very excited for his sister.

Or something like that.

Any guesses as to what she picked out at the gift shop?

And I came home and immediately submitted my princess application.

Yes, it was one of the best days of her our life!

That is so precious! I can't wait until Maggie gets to meet the Princesses! I think I will cry when it happens! And can I just say that while it took awhile - Melody's hair is beautiful! Such a blondie!

So sweet! I bet she had such a great time! That is one thing we did not do when we went to Disney...Henry and Grant would have looked just like Jack:)

What an awesome experience for her. Model was so little when we went to Disney and she was asleep when we met the princess' and woke up in Cinderella's arms. It was priceless.
Did Belle look like Sandra Bullock to you? Melody is so cute and sweet in all her glory. Adorable.

We took our kids to Disneyland for the first time, two years ago, and being their first time, I wanted each of them to have an experience they would never forget. Jordan's was sitting for a caricature portrait, while a big crowd gathered to ooooh and aaah, Matt's was fighting Darth Maul at the Jedi Training Academy. And Emma's was meeting Ariel.

I remember waiting in line with her, and just watching her eyes as the Little Mermaid came into view. Magic!

What a great story -- it sounds like you had a great time!

That is just too sweet! Melody is darling! I would have been holding back tears too if my daughter was meeting her favorite princesses! Lily has never been too big on the princesses. Maybe Daisy will be!!!
