42. You're never too old to have your picture taken with Mickey.

"The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion.   So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart.  It is the magic that begins the happily ever after."

This marks the 3rd time we have taken you two to Disney World.

The first trip, Bubbe was 4 and Pumpkin was 6.  On that trip, Pumpkin loved all the disney magic - wanted to meet every character, dance with every princess, and dine in the grandest of castles. Bubbe - not so much. The characters were a tad much and the long days made him one tired 4 year old!

On our second trip, just a year later at 5 and 7, Pumpkin was huge into the rides. Riding everything she was tall enough to get on. A few autographs here and there - for those characters she had not met before. Bubbe, it was finally his trip. With much excitement we waited in line to meet Buzz Lightyear and Woody, Cars characters, and the Fabulous 5.

On this trip, several years later at 7 and 9 (though closer to 8 and 10), we never opened an autograph book. No one wanted to wait in line to meet characters. On this, our last night at the Magic Kingdom, I persuaded you both to meet Mickey and Minnie with me - just this one. 

You both grumbled a complaint or two, but into the line we went. 

When it was our turn, you both happily went to have your picture taken.

For you see, my children, you are never too old to have your picture taken with Mickey.

You are never too old for the magic.
