We're off to see the Wizards - Our 1st Trip to US/IOA


I thought I would start a trip report for our upcoming trip.

A little about us...

I'm a Children's Librarian who just returned to full-time work after nearly 11 years of being mostly a SAHM. I am loving my job, and doubly loving the extra income (which is allowing us to do fun things like surprise trips, but more about that later!).

DH works as a department manager for a local college. We are slowing converting him to a theme park crazy like the rest of us!

DD (11) is our middle school student. She is in the band, is a great artist, loves horses and is a super student! DS (9) is super intelligent, loves music and playing Legos. He sometimes struggles with an anxiety disorder which creeps in and tries to take away some of his fun. DS (6) is our spunky ball of energy! He loves life and is a super positive, life-loving little guy.

This year has been filled with changed for our family. As I mentioned before, I returned to work this year, which was a HUGE adjustment for all of us. In addition, we also built our dream home this year. Because of the move, the kids all started new schools this year. All of these changes happened in September!

Last year, I won 4 one-day passes to Universal through Coke Rewards. We hoped to be able to use them someday, but it wasn't looking likely with new jobs and a new house, and budget cuts at work (DH usually has a convention in Orlando that we piggyback on). Long story short, we ended up finding a great Cyber Monday deal on airfare and I was able to secure a few days off at work, so we're heading to Universal Studios January 7-12!
