This will make you smile for sure!

Have I got a great post for you! It still makes me smile to think about. Because its so sweet, and because this mommy is brilliant!!

Last night we went to Disneyland's trick or treat party. Its so much fun! They close the park at 7 for everyone else, and we get to trick or treat, see characters, and ride rides with a much smaller crowd!
I noticed that they had 4 princesses in this one character greeting. Ariel, Cinderella, Bell, and Rapunzel. If you didn't already know, Ariel is Arina's FAVORITE princess ever! Cinderella is a up there, but she really adores Ariel. The line was quite long, but we decided to wait because those two princesses don't frequent the park much, and we've never seen them yet. We had been in line about 20 minutes, and were about halfway there. Arina was being very good! A women comes out and announces that the princesses have to go to the parade, and they would be back after. She and Cinderella walked out! I was ticked that they hadn't stopped the line, or told us sooner. You can't expect a toddler to wait 30 mins for the parade, and another 20 for the rest of the line!
I pulled Arina out of line and strapped her in her stroller. That's when I noticed the princesses, with the exception of Cinderella, standing behind a post taking a picture with a staff member. I promptly grabbed Arina and went over to the corner of that post.
See I knew that if the princesses saw Arina, they would come over! They always do, they just can't resist her.
Magically, my plan worked. Rapunzel spotted her first, and I'm telling you, she was ready to put Arina in her pocket and take her to the parade with her!

But Arina was after Ariel! When she started walking our direction those arms stretched out, she grabbed her dress and wouldn't let go!!
It was priceless! She loved every single second of Ariel's loves and kisses. This smile is worth 1,000 words, and I'm patting myself on the back for my brilliant idea!!
