First-Time! Fantastic Adventures on the Fly!

Welcome! Please come on in!

Hello to anyone following/reading this thread! This is my first time doing a trip report and I hope that it goes along as a success. I have lurked the boards for several years now, reading all your trip reports and gleaning information and advice from your adventures. Now, it's time for me to return the favor!

Here's the whole crew at an amusement park, forgive the hot, sweaty faces... and the fact that my two girls were apparently not ready for the picture???--not Disney!

Background--I am a French teacher from the triangle area in North Carolina. My husband of 14 years and I have three kiddos....their names I have been forbidden to share (my hubby!) so I will call them by their nicknames: Monster (oldest daughter), Strawberry (middle daughter) and FatDaddy (son)!

Here is a much better pic of the kids...saturday morning crafting...

Had to add this pic....it describes my kids to a 'T'!

Several years ago, my hubby and I decided that we were going to change our outlook on how we were gifting our kids with material things instead of experiences and opportunities. With our changed decision, we ceased purchasing our kids expensive toys for Christmas and birthdays and started gifting them with new experiences! Now, that is not to say that they no longer celebrate their birthdays with small gifts (we still let them have a small bday party with friends and family, and believe me, that gives them more stuff than they could ever use!), it's just that we are investing in another way of celebrating them and the holiday of Christmas--we are celebrating by giving them our time.

So....our first time of doing this was a trip to WDW in June of 2011! And yes, I know, it is 2013 I'm sorry! I need to put in the disclaimer that I am also a grad student at Duke University (Go Devils!!!) and that also takes up my life in ways you wouldn't believe....

And now the trip! Bear with me as I start the posting...I am trying to do this as best as I can. Hopefully you will enjoy my story as much as I have enjoyed all of yours....
