When You Wish Upon a Star

Once upon a time, a little girl of two, almost three, began to have dreams of princesses and castles.

Her mommy and daddy waved their magic wand and made her dream come true. Grandparents received royal invitations too.

Everywhere she turned there was magic.

Most fun of all were the horses,

the elephants,

and the teacups all ready to give her a ride.

Almost as much fun for her was shopping in candy castles, and gift shops that amazingly appeared at every turn.

But the most special part of it all was meeting the princesses, like Pocahontas,  who had jumped straight out of the movies and books that she adored.

And you know, if you just barely cut your eyes up to look at them, they are really not so big,

but you should always keep your guard up.

Sleeping Beauty was truly beautiful,

Cinderella, her favorite, brought tears to her eyes,

and Belle was fascinating.

Sweet Jordan was really impressed with Jasmine's jewelry, and

when it was time to greet the last princess, Jordan was even brave enough to give a smile. Probably because Snow White was really impressed that Jordan wore a bow in her hair just like she did.

It's often hard work meeting all that royalty,

and "hot" does not begin to describe the early September day,

but a girl catches a few ZZZZ's when she can,

and wakes up the next morning after a hard night's sleep, all refreshed from her beauty sleep and ready to go again.

Some parts of the kingdom were a little "scary" so you just hide your eyes, 

until the princesses return in all their beauty.

All good things must come to an end, with hugs and kisses for all, 

and a girl has to kiss a few frogs along the way

before she finds her true prince. And they lived happily ever after....sweet Jordan, her mommy and daddy and her grandparents who relived the magic all over again.

  10. What a special "First" trip to Disney World. I'm sure there will many, many more to come, but it's wonderful that you have this documentation of these precious memories! I'm sure there were plenty of other pictures to make Jordan her own special book as someone above suggested. Great idea!
