Discovering DVC timandlesley style-A PTR, 19 days TRIP REPORT LINK PG.119!!!!!

Hello fellow Diserís. Timandlesley are BAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKK!!!
ďThere ainít no party like a Timandlesley party causeí a timandlesley party donít stoooooop : ) ď
If you need proof and donít believe me, check out this lady in the back row, sheís already gettiní down with her badself : )

We are back and better than ever because NOW we are official DVC members and are soooooooo excited about all that brings for us.
We can now officially call this place home :

This year we have an outstanding trip planned including 7glorious nights at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and then followed by 10 nights at Saratoga Springs using developer points. Thatís right, 17 NIGHTS/18 DAYS in DISNEY!!!! We canít wait!!!! (can you sense the enthusiasm!?!)
We'll be going from June 21st-July 8th 2009. Any tips on Fouth of July will be great, we've never been this time of year before. For those of you who havenít joined us on an adventure before (check out the link in my signature to last years adventure) I will introduce us next:
First there is me, I am a 32 year old special education teacher from the Cincinnati Ohio area ( I feel like Iím filling out a personal ad : ) I have been a Disney fanatic as long as I can remember I am a mother to two beautiful children : Luke and Lauren (to be introduced below) and married to the love of my life Tim who has become a Disney fanatic like me since our marriage (we honeymooned in Disney 10 years ago) and he makes me laugh every single day Ė heíll make you laugh throughout this report as well. It was easy to convince him to purchase DVC this year, actually he was pushing for it as hard as I was. We are so excited for all of the Disney trips that will mean for us (stay tuned because we also have a ADULTS only trip in the works for Food and Wine Festival 2009!!!)
Here is a visual for ya:
Me (Lesley):

Tim and I:

Then there comes Tim, my DH of 10 years, the one who keeps us all laughing.

To give you a sense of his craziness, here is video from last year having to ride the horse around the Whispering Canyon Cafť for our anniversary, it was so funny!

Then comes Luke, heíll be 8 years old this trip and takes after his father with his funny antics and both of us for his love for Disney:
Like father like son:

He takes his Disney trips seriously : )

Then comes Lauren, our Disney princess through and through, she has been going with us on yearly trips to Disney since she was 8 months old, I canít believe she is 5 years old:

So, buckle up, it is going to be a fun ride on our FIRST DVC trip ever, our longest trip ever to the world and we promise to bring lots of great updates, loaded with a ton of pics, video and best of all FUN!!!!

Thanks so much for the invite! We are 7 mos out too, but I don't have much to say yet on a PTR, still a little nervous to start one. Although, I do have a lot to say about the ressie thing, so maybe I'll start one.
I'm excited to read about your 16 days and your first trip as DVC owners.
How's Mickey???
