The Perfect Conclusion to Her First Full Day as Mrs. Bricker

I can't say I blame Sarah for falling asleep on our bus ride back to BoardWalk after the first day of our honeymoon. On the night of our wedding, we only got 2 hours of sleep as we had to get up at 4 a.m. to head to the airport to begin the honeymoon. Granted, we did sleep a bit on the plane, and did take a half hour nap when we arrived at BoardWalk. However, immediately thereafter we began our normal bustle, heading to the final Star Wars weekend and then immediately thereafter scurrying to the Magic Kingdom for Evening Extra Magic Hours.


Of course, after Evening Extra Magic Hours, we took pictures; then, the strangest thing happened--something that has never happened to us. It was apparent that we were the last ones at the Magic Kingdom (by both observation and Security telling us so), but they did not "encourage" us to leave. Quite the contrary, in fact! Security told us to take as many pictures as we wanted, and of course, we couldn't pass up this opportunity. Heck, we even got pictures outside of the Train Station (rarely possible for us at night)! It was almost as if the Disney gods were taunting us: "we know you're tired and probably wouldn't mind being told to leave and go to bed, but if you're willing to bear with the tiredness, you may stay and take pictures."


When we got on the bus shortly after 4 a.m., Sarah fell asleep. I quietly set up the tripod and grabbed a few shots of her sleeping. I eventually woke her up doing this. At first I don't think she was too thrilled that I woke her up, but once she saw the results she was pleased.
