Sara's 95th Birthday

The Birthday Girl
Mom, Leo, Mariah, Megan (Mariah's friend), Vickie

We celebrated Grandma Sherrill's 95th at Disneyland. It had been over forty years since the last time she was there.

Going to City Hall for Mom's birthday button was worth the wait. She was no doubt the only 95th birthday girl in the entire park. Mom could not believe how well she was treated. She felt special all day.

Cast members went out of their way to wish her a Happy Birthday and the public added their congratulations. She enjoyed no waiting in the lines, escorted to see Mickey (Mickey even danced with her), given a convented Pixey pin, VIP seating for Fantasmic, and so much more. It was definitely a special day.

For my mother nothing can compare to being with family. We gathered downtown Disney for an late lunch.

To top off the day- the waiter asked Mom to look out over the balcony, to her surprise everyone in the restaurant sang happy birthday to her! What a thrill!!!

Grandma Sherrill's 95th birthday was more than any of us could have imagined.
This is what life is all about, the memories we build as families.
