It’s A Small World!

We’ve been working on our summer vacation plans the past few weeks and we are really excited about taking Jude somewhere together, as a family. He really takes everything in these days – such a little sponge! Southern California is our destination of choice and I can hardly wait.

So how silly are we? We actually want to take Jude to Disneyland for the first time. Admittedly, it’s really more for us than it is for him. He won’t remember it. But it’s the happiest place on earth! And I can’t get enough “It’s a Small World”! Besides, I like riding all the kiddie rides the best anyways. I think he would get a kick out of the Electrical Parade, too.

Random side-note: did you know that the illustrator/art director for many vintage Disney movies and attractions (including It’s a Small World) was actually from Oklahoma? Mary Blair was extremely prolific, and Walt Disney was very impressed with her. She had a hand in many Disney projects over the years, creating the “look” for favorites such as “Alice in Wonderland.”
