Give a Day Get a Day!

Earlier this year I got a call from my Sister -in -law Heather. She told me that Disneyland had a promotion going on where if you give a day of service, you get a free ticket to Disneyland. She said her family was doing it and if we did, we could go to Disneyland together! It sounded like fun so I told her to count us in!
For our service, we signed up with an organization called Treasures for Teachers and put together kits for teachers. We filled boxes with all kinds of supplies like stickers, pens, post-its, markers, paperclips, etc...Oh, and I threw in some chocolate! We added some hand made thank you cards, wrapped them up pretty and then delivered them to the "drop off place".  It wasn't long before we got our vouchers for our "Disney Day"!

We were able to redeem those vouchers this past week. Heather made matching shirts for all the kids. They looked so cute and were so excited to be together at the "Happiest Place on Earth"!

Instead of me rambling on about every fun adventure we had, I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures.  Have fun looking at them. We sure had fun at Disney land!

Waiting for Disneyland to open!! We were first in line.

Dancing with Mary Poppins! "Step in Time!"

Eliza opted not to participate in Jedi training because she "didn't want to get killed!"

Having fun on Tom Sawyer Island

Meeting Micky!
Best Day Ever!
