My husband and I have traveled to Disney World and on Disney Cruises many times throughout our relationship. It was where we went on our first vacation together, where he proposed to me, and where we have celebrated our wedding anniversaries. It is so special to us. We had never gone to Disneyland together though. Marc went once on his own years ago while he was at a conference nearby. This year his conference was once again in Anaheim so we took the opportunity to see where all of the magic began. The best part was that we got to take our wonderful niece Sofia with us! She, my brother and my sister in law met up with us in Anaheim not long after we arrived. We were able to have a few days of fantastic family time before the conference started. Marc and I took our niece to the parks for the whole day to spend some quality time and make indelible memories. Let me tell you, there was something so magical and special about taking a child for her first trip to Disneyland. Sofia was wide eyed and so excited from the moment we stepped onto the monorail to go into the park!
Bringing our niece to Disneyland was like looking at it through completely fresh, new eyes for us. Watching Sofia’s awe and excitement made us so ridiculously happy. Every exclamation of “this is so awesome!!” (and there were many) made our hearts swell. Marc and I just love her to pieces and spending that time with her was precious. It was a day that we, and hopefully she, will never ever forget.
