The first stop on the whirlwind day was American Girl Place in The Grove in LA where we browsed dolly heaven and then ate at the cafe...Loretta's desert was served with a birthday candle and you can see she and her little companion are enthralled with it!
Next stop was the park as it was Celebration year and the Park gave Loretta a gift card equivalent to a one day admission in the park to shop...she had a lot of fun buying presents for herself! We had dinner at the Plaza Restaurant in the park. We had tried to book the Blue Bayou for dinner but alas, reservations are hard to get there and we had to put that excursion off for a day until they could fit us in. (it was worth the wait, though!!) The pin on her top is one proclaiming she is celebrating her birthday at Disneyland! They just think of all the little things that make events and occasions special!
And here are the signs and decorations up around the park proclaiming it the celebration year! I don't think we can top this day this year but we will try and have fun anyhow...after all how many times do you turn the golden age of 50? Once in a lifetime if you are lucky and fortunate to have made it this far! Happy Birthday my friend, may the next 50 years treat you as well as the first half a century!
