Part of our trip to Disneyland this year included a special birthday surprise for my friend, Jen's daughter, Sarah, just turned 4. Sarah, her sister Emily, and my girls Lily and Ava, all went to the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique in Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland. The boutique just opened up this April and was not too crowded, since I don't think many people know about it yet. The fairy godmothers helped the girls pick out princess dresses and shoes, which the birds then set out in the changing rooms. The girls all got their hair done - they all picked the "Fairytale Princess" style (big surprise...) - had their nails painted and their makeup done. Over the top? Yes. A bit disturbing to see 3 and 4 and 5 year olds in makeup and the whole thing? Oh, yes. But..the girls loved it (for about 2 hours...and then off it all came!) and I think the way it was done was in a very magical, true-to-Disney way. The fairy dust was everwhere for days, which actually helped to dry some tears throughout the weekend when a fall happened or a shoe was lost. We took photos in the carriage, which turned out really cute (I don't have a copy of the professional photos yet, the below photos were just taken with my trusty iPhone). Will we do it again? Probably not. But for a birthday celebration with 4 little girls, it was quite a special experience.
