~Our Birthday Bash June/July 09~ 1st PTR 7/10 TR started

Hi all! Please bear with me as this is my first TR. I enjoy reading all the TRs here on the boards and I think it's a great way to memorialize a trip. We decided to take advantage of the free birthday admission this year. We started planning in Oct 08. DH & I have our birthday very close to each other. Mine is 7/2 and DH's is 6/30. DD is 6/24 but for now she is free anyways. So here goes.

Cast

Me Beth 28 - A SAHM who tries to squeeze in as many trips in one year as possible.

DH 26 - Loves all things Disney except the expense part.

DD 11 months - Our little princess who will be turning 1 on June 24.

Check In June 29 @ OKW
July 1st (switch to AKV Jambo)
Check Out July 3rd


First split stay for us. I know it seems short for a split stay but we are only use to 2-3 day stays living so close to WDW. This is our 2nd DVC stay. We were at SSR in Jan 08.

We are so excited to be staying 4 nights which we have only done but one other trip when we got married.

Trip Gear

Here's a few pics of some trip gear.

T-shirts


Some outfits for Grace


Her outfit for Chef Mickey's


Swim Suits



Stinky trying to get in the picture.

So I finaly broke down and bought a decent diaper bag. I've read around the forum that a lot of DIS Moms love the Skip Hop bags because of the stroller clips.



OT but Grace says Mickey Mouse!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYCXzBOzUCI
Comes out more like "Mickhim Mou" but you get the idea. She has been pointing at him in her books and we'll ask her "Who is that Grace?". So cute!

Just wanted to share my late Mother's day gift.
It was a replacement. When we moved several of my figures got broken. DH found it on Ebay and grabbed it.

Planning Grace's Birthday Party

So we're having Grace's 1st birthday party 2 days before we leave. It's going to make it kinda hectic but we can't do it the 20th or July 4th. We also don't wanna wait until July 11th because it's so far from her birth date. We're having a small BBQ at my parents with family and friends...may be 20-30 people. I'll be make cupcakes and a smash cake for Grace. Here's some practice ones.




Also made the invitations. I'm not thrilled about how they came out but they were made for under $20.



A few favors for the kids.


35 days away happy dance!!!!

Disney birthday cake ideas

I really don't want to spend much on a cake. I also don't want a frozen podium cake bleh nor a huge cake because it will be just 2 of us. So I came up with an idea. I think I'll surprise DH with a little something. I was thinking of having the Boardwalk bakery place 2 mini mickey head cakes(so DH doesn't have to share his ) on a server and write Happy Birthday for both of us. Not sure if they will do this but it's worth a shot.

Stole this pic from Sandy321 on The Official Cake Chatter Thread.. Hope ya don't mind!

That sounds like a really cute idea! I bet they will do that -- from what I have heard the Boardwalk Bakery is very accomodating.

Hi!!! I followed you over from my PTR and Lynn's TR!!! Your daughter is so cute!! I think it is SO FUN that all your birthdays are close together!! I suspect there will be MANY more birthday trips to come...especially when Grace isn't free. I can't wait to hear all about your trip. I'm secretly hoping you bring home another "souvenier"! (Do you remember the commercial for that with the little girl telling everyone how Mommy and Daddy said that her little sister was their souvenier! )

Woo-hoo, you started a PTR! All right!! I'm definitely in.

Grace is absolutely adorable!!! I love all those cute outfits you've picked out for her -- especially that Minnie outfit for Chef Mickey's. That video of her talking is adorable!!

I excited to try Chef Mickey's -- it's our first time there. I can't wait to see my grumpy DH around all the characters!!
