As we walked into Disneyland, I was amazed at all there was to see. I didn’t know where to focus—it was truly disorienting. As I adjusted to this new level of intensity, Ava and Olivia jumped right in. From 100 feet away, Ava spied Mary Poppins, and thus began our first of many queues over the course of the week.

Olivia was full of trepidation, but Ava showed her the way.

Speaking of Olivia, the first thing she noticed in the chaos of the park was an airplane. As I scanned the shops, statues and characters around us, she pointed to the sky. Somehow, despite everything around her, she had noticed a jet at 35,000 and was THRILLED. Bryan said for her fifth birthday, we’ll take her to an airport.

    “Airmane! Airmane” Remember, Katie? Traveling with Ava on the low road on our way to Oz? — cows and airmanes! We stopped on the side of the road to satisfy the little girl with the fascination of jetstreams in the sky! So cute that Olivia is fascinated with them too!

    I love the way Ava was looking out for Olivia in the photos you sent from that day.

    Looking forward to the rest of the Disney journey!

    I forgot to say that I can’t wait to teach the Little Mermaids this blog post title backwards: “docious-ali-expi-istic-fragil-cali-rupus.” So fun.

    I know Ava was totally excited about Disneyland, but I did find it typical that when I spoke with her on her birthday, what she really wanted to do was go to the hotel and swim. I’m sure she got over it after seeing Mary Poppins
