Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

I do get to go! I do get to go! A trip that almost wasn't! Update 1/25

Hey, Hi, Hello, and How are ya?
Welcome to my 2nd attempt at making a TR half as good as the ones I read religiously (you know who you are). I live, think, and breathe WDW and anything Disney. As you can see from my name, picture, and sig- I love Tink! I love her so much I even put myself through getting a tattoo. I'll share that picture in a moment...
So, some of you may be wondering why I chose this title. Well, let's just say it was a must needed trip and I'm SO glad I was able to go with my family! We have been going to WDW every year since I was 3. And on the last day of my first trip there, my mom said that she had never seen a little girl cry as hard as I did when I found out we were leaving. I wanted to stay there forever! And to this day, I still cry on the last day (okay maybe not as hard as I did when I was 3). I'm a senior in college and took part in an internship over the summer at our local Lutheran Social Services. And do you know what the first thing I thought of was when I got the job?! "Oh no! I'm not going to get to go to WDW!" I cried. Yeah, I'm a big ol' sap.

We were also dealing with the loss of my aunt who left behind a 10 year-old and a now 2 year-old with my uncle. We've been helping him night and day. The 10 year-old my aunt had before she met my uncle, and the 2 year-old is my uncle's. He's the light of our lives and he's the only thing that's helped me keep going through this. So, I explained to my boss what the situation was and told her I really needed to get away from life at home and get myself together. She was completely understanding! I hurried and called my DDad and told him that I get to go! He got on the phone and added me to all their ADR's and to the room reservations! I do get to go! I do get to go!

Sadly, the only one that didn't get to go with us this trip was my Db/f. He got the gift of a lifetime with his uncles, grandpa, and dad to go to Chicagoland Speedway and ride the Richard Petty Driving Experience. His whole family is HUGE NASCAR fans! But, the day he went there was also the day we left for WDW! Bummer! But, he's been with us the past 3 years and I got to introduce him to my favorite place as he had never been before then!

Let's begin the introductions...

Me (aka Tinkgurl)

The dates: June 14-June 24, 2008. The location: OKW for the first time! We usually stay at the WLV.

Up next: Day 1
