Friday Photo Flashback

It is that time of the week again. The time when Alicia at More Than Words encourages us to dig through our pre-digital photos and share them with you all. This week, however, I will be ignoring the pre-digital part of the request. Why? Because we're still in Buttercup's birthday month (she's turning 11 in two weeks) and I've had a digital camera since she was three! (Okay, also because I'm bored of pictures of me, don't have any of my ancestors, and really like going through the ones of my kids!)
Forgive me?

We got our first digital camera for this trip to Disneyland in May of 2002. We actually stayed in the Paradise Pier Hotel (thanks to the generosity of my step-brother who just so happens to work for Disneyland!) and spent two days at Disneyland and California Adventure. As you can tell by the photos, I'm not much for California Adventure. My heart belongs to Disneyland.

Buttercup got it into her head that she had to give Cinderella flower petal and so we waited in the long line to see Cinderella and Buttercup did, indeed, give Cinderella the flower petal.

Do you see it? It is purple against Cindy's blue glove. She was so nice about it, too. (Yes, I know it was her job, but she did it well...Buttercup was so proud of herself because she just knew Cinderella LOVED her present.)

In Toon Town, we went to Minnie's house and she was there to visit with Buttercup. Look at the look on Buttercup's face. Isn't is adorable? Now look at the looks on the boys' faces. Can' you see how thrilled they are to "visit Minnie"? Bwahaha...I'm such a mean mom!
Look at my men, in line for the Autopia cars...aren't they an attractive group? Hard to believe that was eight years ago already and the oldest is graduating from college this May, the younger one is as tall as I am, and Superman is 10,000+ miles away from us all. Sigh.

Buttercup couldn't drive the car by herself, but she was excited to hit the road.

As you can see she had a blast...Superman took this shot as we were exiting our car. She's too cool for school, isn't she?

That is it for this don't want to know how many pictures I took in two days at Disneyland, but trust me, I haven't even scratched the surface. I could bore you for hours with this pictures, but I won't. Hey, Alicia, I double checked...I do NOT have one of those front of the park shots funny is that?

Don't forget to head over to Alicia's to see what everyone else dug up for Friday Photo Flashback this week. I know it always puts a smile on my face and makes me realize that pictures really do matter.

Can you believe we haven't been to Disney yet as a family? I can't wait to take them. Fun walk down memory lane and it is crazy how quickly time flys.

Alicia said...

What??? You don't have any of those?? Well, you need to go to Disney and take one! LOL, wouldn't that be neat to compare your kids then and now??? all Disney pictures!! They are always so colorful. And seriously, those life size characters are the highlights for kids! LOL

How are you holding down the fort w/ hubby gone?

Aw! Great photo memories here :o) And I think any past photos are perfect -pre digital or digital.

wow...I am so behind the times (I think I finally got my first digital camera a couple of years ago), & like with our first cell phone! back about 6 yrs ago, even some elementary kids had them before I did. (when I was their crossing guard).

Your Buttercup is adorable and I love all their expressions.

Blessings & Aloha!
(thank you for your kind comment :o) So fun finding your comments.)
