silhouette studio

I don't have very many early memories of my childhood.  I do however have one specific event while in Disneyland that I remember clearly.  My parents took us to the Silhouette Studio to have our silhouette done.  It must have been a super cheap souvenir for 4 small children, because 25 years later that same studio is still there and it only is $9 to get your silhouette done!  That same lady that did mine when I was 5, did Van's when she was 3, and today did Vin's!  The expert has been sitting in the same studio for 37 years, and is a pro at whipping these out in less than 5 minutes!!
Through all the moves my Mom proudly displayed all 4 silhouette's up on the wall of her kids, and now in my house I proudly display my two kids...and I love it.  My favorite souvenir!

When I went for the first time when I was 19, my mom sister and I got ours done and she put all 3 in the same little thingy, all of us looked the same....

I just read your whole week. Looks like so much fun, minus Legoland! I love this cute tradition and I love that the same lady has done the silhouettes for all of you!
