Disneyland with 75 teenagers

Every other year, the Tigard High School band takes a spring break trip. They've been to Canada, San Francisco and New York. But in recent years, they've traveled south to Disneyland. Not only do the students get to play, they perform in the park, march in a parade, and have clinics with Disney music directors. It's a wonderful experience of fun and learning!

Since I've been on staff at THS, I've accompanied the band on three trips now, helping with legal, official and medical issues. It's a whole lot of fun for me, too - but I am exhausted!

Eryn has worked at THS her whole career, and she's been on more trips than she can count. This time, we hung out together almost the whole trip - sister fun! And we took pics of every attraction we did... check out our pictorial documentation!
