Don't get me wrong. I completely know and understand that Rylee won't remember the trip. But I'll have pictures and video to show her as she gets older. And what it so obvious is that whether she can remember it in the future or not is irrelevant. It's what she's experiencing now that will shape her for the future. I want her to know now and forever that she has parents that would do anything in this world for her and love her more than anything! Looking at the pictures of her with the characters just puts a smile on your face.
Rylee's first ever amusement park ride was "It's a Small World" as Magic Kingdom. Her first concert was "Skillet." Her first ever meet and greet with a band was "Skillet." She ended up riding the Haunted Mansion ride, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, and Flying Dumbo elephants with Billie. She saw the Lion King live and also experienced the Bug Life at Animal Kingdom as well as the 3D Mickey's PhilarMagic Show. She met Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Rapunzel, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Thumper, King Louie, Brer Fox, Rafiki, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, and Tigger. And of course she got all of their autographs too.
I'm sure this will be the first of many trips to Disney for Rylee and as her Daddy, I get all the joy in the world just watching her have fun, smile, laugh, and experience life. There's nothing like it!
