**Update Winner** Winner of the 3 Dumbo pins is @Disneyme2death!! Please DM me your info! I would also like to THANK EVERYONE for their kind words and support. It really MEANT a lot!!! I felt like the true winner of this RAK!!! ** #RAK. Today would have been my Mom's 80th birthday, but she went to Heaven in 2005. She would take myself and my 2 sisters to Disneyland while my Dad had a magical day golfing!! She is the reason I love the parks so much, and she left me with an adoration for Dumbo that will forever be bittersweet. In her honor, I have 3 Dumbo pins to give away. To enter, a simple add me will do. Ends Sunday Sep 9 at 10pm. Have a great weekend!

Don't add me Willierose just wanted to say this is a nice RAK. My gramma passed in 2005 and would have been 80 a couple weeks ago too. I love Dumbo! I was raised without parents so I know all to well how Dumbo felt wanting his Mama. Happy thoughts going your way! 😊 - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 4:45PM
What a nice way to remember your mom. So sorry she is no longer here with you. How nice that she has left you with that love of Disney and of sweet Dumbo! Love that Dumbo vinyl too. Cute! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 4:59PM
Thank you for sharing that touching story...brought tears to my eyes. I used to (well, still do actually) sing "Baby Mine" to my lil one so Dumbo is special to us too. It was also the 1st ride she ever went on. What a sweet way to honor your mother...thank you for making me cry & smile! :) - MissAmericaSings  405.9 #553 8:19PM
Please add me. You make your mothers spirit alive with your touching stories. I lost my dad 13 years ago this month. I love to watch the flag retreat in his honor. Always makes me proud. Thanks for hosting this RAK. - sewedna  575.4 #351 1:11AM
no need to add me dear friend! Your parents are looking down at you and feeling so proud of the person you are! Your Awesome!
