Goldilocks & The Three Bears!


When I woke up yesterday morning, I had it in my mind that we would surprise the girls with a trip to Disneyland. I have been wanting to go for a month (since the last time we went!), and I thought today would be perfect because it's a Monday in January. Nobody goes to Disneyland on Mondays in January!

So, I told Paprika as soon as she woke up, and she looked up at me with the biggest puppy dog eyes and said, "But what I really want to do today is play Goldilocks and the Three Bears in the backyard. I am going to be Goldilocks, you will be Mama Bear, Daddy will be Papa Bear, and Ginger will be Baby Bear."


So, that's what we did. We played Goldilocks many times, and I even got to be Goldilocks once or twice. Ginger was agreeable to play the role of Baby Bear. The only trouble was that she kept running off with the pretend porridge Paprika had set out in bowls.


The other fun part of the day was watering the plants in our backyard. I tell you...excitement! You really can't compare the fun of watering the lemon tree with the thrill of riding the teacups at Disneyland. Watering the lawn will win every time! Haha. ;-)


In other news, Paprika drew this picture of the solar system right before she went to sleep. I've been trying to take pictures of her DoodlePro drawings because they are so temporary, and once they're gone...they're gone! She has been really interested in the solar system lately and she was so proud of her drawing!


The End!

Tell Paprika I'll GLADLY go to Disneyland anytime in her place (since I'm almost 30 and have never been to Disneyland or Disneyworld (I'm on the East Coast) :) Lucky girl! :)

Excellent drawing and how wonderful she knows about the planets. Do ya'll lay on a blanket in the backyard when the sun goes down and stargaze? Given that Paprika is a night owl, I bet she'd love it.

Paprika is SO inventive! I love her make believe games and art.
