Our Cast

Let me introduce you to our cast.

My name is Megan. I am a 31 year old wife and mother. I am a high school Free Enterprise teacher. My first trip to WDW was when I was 3 years old. I fell off of a safety swing while wearing my wet swimsuit before the safety bar was in place and broke my jaw. My mom felt so guilty since she was the one who pulled the swing back too early that she asked me what she could do to make me feel better once I got out of surgery. My response? I want to go to WDW. A new love was born on that trip. Since I am the second of five children, WDW was always then out of my parents’ price range to return with all of us again.

My DH is Bryan. He is 33 years old and is a local small business owner. He did not start out with the same love for WDW as I did. When we got married, he agreed to go to WDW for our honeymoon. However, he said that he was okay without going back again until we had children after that trip. We brought our first son in 2006 while I was pregnant, and he fell in love on our first day.

My oldest son is named Samuel. He is seven years old and in first grade. When we brought him to WDW in 2006, the idea was that he would get to have one trip as just the three of us since I was 5 months pregnant with my second son at that time. He was hooked within the first hour of our first day. I remember watching the look of awe on his face watching Festival of the Lion King for the first time. He was just amazed. That has been his one favorite show in all of WDW from that day. Sam is the cautious child.

My youngest son is named Cooper. He is three and hopes for the day that he gets his spider powers like Spider-Man. Yes, my child hopes to be bitten by a spider one day soon (specifically a blue and red spider). Sometimes my DH and I swear that he is allergic to WDW. He has been there 3 times and two of those times he ended up at Centra Care. The doctor actually remembered us a year after the first visit. He is itching to ride Test Track and Big Thunder. He is my thrill seeker.

And, just so you have a visual to go with all of that, here is a picture of us from the first day of our trip last summer.



My youngest sister, Madeline, also joined us for the trip. This was her second trip to WDW - both with us. She is an EMT and wanted to take the trip with us because she is entering Paramedic school. She won't be able to miss school for longer than 24 hours for her to get credit for her work.



Traveling along with us were my SIL, BIL, and nieces. You'll see pictures of them along the way.

If I'm a redheaded ninja, does that make me a Gin-ja? I would like to think so!

I'm a teacher, too, although I don't know how brave I am.

I'd love to read along as we wait out our next trip, which is at the end of this month.

Since we have girls, it will be interesting to see more boy things happening with you guys.

Oh, and...I'll be on the lookout for blue and red spiders to send your way.

Welcome! The brave has a double meaning. The mascot for the school I work at is an indian brave. Plus, you have to be brave somewhat to teach sometimes.
