well, the trip's over and now comes the time to relive it here on the DIS. makes the post-disney blues a little easier to deal with! ;)

i'm sure most of you are coming over from my pre-TR, but for those of you who are new to this, i'll do a quick overview:


that would be me and DH. my name is dawn and i'm a 31-year-old court reporter. my DH's name is ray and he's a 36-year-old desktop administrator. here we are at MK last of my favorite shots:

we also have a couple of flat they are below. that's flat beana on the left and flat mattica on the right. and let me tell you...... THEY ARE SOME PARTY ANIMALS!


our 6-year anniversary trip to disney world. our anniversary is actually on april 13th, but we don't do spring break crowds, so we postponed it a couple weeks.


we stayed at SSR this trip and loved it. renting points from dear DVC friends (thanks, tara!) rocks!!!

we left on saturday, april 26th and came back home on saturday, may 3rd


why? we need a reason for disney world????? WHY NOT?!?!?!?! :goodvibes

i will be back later tonight with my first installment. just wanted to go ahead and start this thing! :flower3:
