A Unicorn Birthday Party


Unicorn Birthday Party

I put the trip together in about three months, which is too close to departure date for most real Disney planners but everything really came together exactly how I envisioned it would. We ended up splitting the trip between Aaron’s Dad’s house in Jacksonville, Disney, and Winter Park for my best friend’s wedding so it felt like we had three vacations for the price of one!

And just like that you’re THREE years old. I spent the entire day watching those movies my iPhone creates (why oh WHY is that music so sad!) and crying just thinking about how big you are and how much we’ve done together. But it’s a fact. You’re not really a baby anymore. You’re going to school part-time, you’re potty trained, you have opinions and let us know them, and now you play on the “big kids” playground with confidence.
