A Trail of Tears from Louisiana to WDW & Back Again! New PTR Link 8/15

Hi & Welcome to my 1st TR! If you followed me over from my PTR, Bringing the Princess to Her Castle for the 1st Time, you can skip this part. If you are just joining me, let's get started with the cast of characters!

Me:

Joni, a 29 yr old SAHM to 2 princes & 1 tiny little princess. And this is my 1st ever trip that I was able to plan all on my own (with help from DIS buddies of course) & I was able to do what I wanted on this trip. I love being a SAHM, even though some days I question it.

My DH, Ben:

Poor guy was up for over 24 hours twice on this trip. Needless to say he is doing nothing but resting right now! Ben is 29 years old & is a dispatcher in the oilfield.

The birthday boy on this trip! My now 10 year old, Koby:

This trip he thought he was too cool for meeting characters & "baby" rides. He was all about the roller coasters! Until he received a kiss!!!!

My 7 year old who conquered his roller coaster fears, Brady:

I will go more into detail about that once this TR gets underway!

And my Tiny Princess (you will find out the meaning behind the name later on also), her very 1st trip, my beautiful 14 month old Shelby:

She inspired the TR title, but the pics I got with her are priceless!

I hope to get started with the 1st installment tonight! So stick around, there are tons of "Awwww" moments, tons of laughs & of course, TONS & TONS of tears!

BTW, those of you who are on my FB, all of my pics from Disney are posted, so you get a sneak peek at them. Now as far as the photopass pics, no one has yet to see those, except those posted here in the intro. Those will be revealed when I get the cd in, hopefully next week. If you are not on my FB, you will just have to wait until I get this TR underway to see pics!

I have been looking at your FB pics all morning! I am loving them! I loved your updates you posted during your trip. I felt like I was right there with you! I can't wait to hear your commentary on the whole trip and see the PP pics.

and thank you! I keep staring at it & thinking to myself, "Cinderella REALLY held my baby girl!" Most of the characters wanted to keep her, you'll find out all about it soon!
