(this is a photo from my last TR since the “new” photobucket is being stupid and is taking FOREVER to download photos. I don’t wear the black boot any more.)

My name is Susan and I design irrigation systems for a landscape architect. I am hopelessly addicted/obsessed with Disney. I very much enjoy our time there with my family. I am also known as Scooter Mom and I did have to use a scooter again this trip due to a very bad ankle injury last year resulting in surgery and several months of recovery. I still struggle with it and even though I am much better and getting around a lot more, I still needed the scooter for the parks.

My DH

He works in management for a chemical company and tolerates my obsession and sometimes enables it as well. I think he loves it as much as I do. Well, maybe not that much, but he really seems to enjoy it.

My DS

He is 13 and getting into those teenage years where there is pouting and moping. But we are getting through it. For the most part, he is a really great kid though and he makes me laugh all of the time.

My DD

She is 10 and my closest Disney ally in the family. We are always discussing our upcoming trips and counting down. She always looks forward to the trips as much as I do. She’s a sweetie.

Here they both are at Chef Mickey’s

Why: Spring Break – duh

We came up with the trip report name as we were trying to navigate the crowds. We were singing “Just Keep Swimming” from Finding Nemo as we happily plowed our way through the crowds. We conquered them – the crowds. We did everything we wanted to do and never waited more than 20 minutes for anything. Even when the crowds for the day were rated a 10. We were so proud of ourselves. Come on along and I will tell you about it. Sing along with me …..

Just keep swimming
Just keep swimming
Just keep swimming swimming swimming
What do we do we swim, swim, swim

Hey Jill !! I am so happy you are here !!

Yes, still riding that darn scooter. But I only used it in the parks for long distances. I walked at the resorts. I am getting around much better, but the scooter was life saver. Again.

Glad your ankle is getting better. I know you've had a long road of healing.
