Back to Reality

It's been awhile since I've posted.  My husband and I took our son, Dylan, on his first trip to Disneyland last week.  Two days in Disneyland, three at Legoland.  It was so wonderful to experience everything through the eyes of a 4-year-old.  All of the ticky tacky elements melt away and you can't help but be immersed in the fantasy of it all.

The sore feet, aching backs, and sensory overload were completely worth it when the magic finally hit Dylan.  Sitting on the concrete sidewalk of California Adventure, waiting for the electrical parade to start.  As the first float rounded the corner, Dylan's little hand grabbed mine and he bounced up and down while he squealed, "Look, Mommy, it's Tinkerbell.  AND SHE'S REAL!!!"  That was it. Blissed out.  Magic.
