Put your imagination ear hats on! This week's theme is
First-Footing Disney Style

Some of you may be familiar with the Scottish first-foot tradition. Manda and all my Scottish friends, forgive me while I botch, butcher and misinterpret this tradition. I mean no disrespect. It's all in fun!

There is a New Year tradition in Scotland called "first footing". In this tradition the first person to enter a home after the new year is supposed bring luck for the rest of the year. I wish we all could have taken a giant foot step into a Disney park on New Years day and brought ourselves luck as well as Disney! 
Here's my spin on First Footing Disney Style...
This grainy scan of a picture was taken with my Nikon FE 35mm. It's not technically a great picture but the memories attached to it are. It was our first day in The Magic Kingdom and as we stepped onto Main Street, USA a brass band marched right in front of us. Peter was swept up in the magic and as they passed he stepped right out doing his own version of marching in a parade. 
Why is that so special?  As far as I can recall that was the first time he stepped out of his AS disorder and let his personality shine through. 
A truly magical first-footing

Now it's time to see your Disney-style spin on the First-Footing tradition. There are many ways you can interpret this theme. Here are a few suggestions to get your started.
  • A picture of the first park you would visit if you were there on New Years.
  • A picture of any of your first days in a park. 
  • The very first time you stepped into a park.
  • Babies first visit...even though they can't step, they do represent New Years, new beginnings and I think they're lucky:)
  • None of the above.
I'll be posting my picture Wednesday but please link up yours now. I'm so excited to see all of your pictures!
