I love September at Disney World but the Love bugs, especially at the water, parks are Everywhere! We have tried going different weeks throughout the month and last years trip fell towards the end and it seemed like there were less the than the two previous trips. At least they don't bite! Can't wait to read all about your trip!

Can't wait to hear how your week went! We had a great time - but learned a lot for next time. I've been taking a break from DIS too - but I'm going thru Disney withdrawal now and had to get back on.

WOW! I just read your entire PTR! We are two peas in a pod I love your matching shirts and all of your organization! My DH would not wear matching last year, but I made him wear similar colors like you did Your children are also adorable and it is great how involved they are at school. I can't wait to read about your trip!! Feel free to join my PTR (link in my siggy).

Subbing!! We did a couple MK days during your stay. I love reading TRs to see if I might've crossed pathes with a someone on here.

I fell in love with CBR a couple of months ago, but we haven't been able to make it back there yet. Can't wait to see how you all liked it!

Off to check out your PTR!!

I was wondering if anyone would know what I was talking about with the love bugs! And, you're right, at least they don't bite, they're not annoying, they're just everywhere!

I'm not sure, but I think I did see ya'll in AK one day. Did your husband have on his furry Dale hat? I saw a family that kindof looked like ya'll. I kept staring, but wasn't 100% sure, so I couldn't get up the nerve to walk up to the family & ask!

Thanks for reading! I wished that I made Brad wear a matching shirt once we were all wearing them! I will definitely join your PTR! I can't wait to read it!

That would be too cool if you saw yourself in the backgroud of one of my pics!
I love reading trip from the same time too! I hope you had a great trip that week. Did you stay at CBR that week?

Hi Queen! I'm sad I didn't run into you either! I can't wait to start reading about your trip! I'm so behind with everything because of school & sports. I finally got Wi-fi last week just so I could read the TR when I lay down at night. I knew that would be the only way I could get caught up!

Subbing... I can't wait to see what you think of CBR. We have to upgrade to a moderate next year for the dining plan, so we booked CBR. We went to Medieval Times and shared a taxi with someone who was staying at CBR on the way back. I got scared when I saw the internal bus!

Introductions

Looks a lot like my PTR because I was being lazy.


Me (Amy): I was a SAHM after I had children & went back to work when they started school. I work a couple of days a week part-time as an instructor at a community college. I love my job. It offers me flexibility where I can work & still spend spend time with my kids & volunteer at school. My time is mostly devoted to my kids activities, work, school, church, etc...
I am coaching Lexi's volleyball team right now. We are always on the run!

I turned the BIG 4-0 this year!





DH (Brad): He is the BEST husband & daddy in the world! He's the fun parent between the two of us. I'm good with the kids for lots of loving & discipline, but Brad is the one that makes our family fun!
When not at work, he's pretty busy w/kids schedule too. He coaches our son's football, baseball, basketball team and helps with our daughter's volleyball team. DH also volunteers at our kids school.


Brad & I


DD & DS (Lexi & Levi): I have 10 yr old twins. I tell them that I prayed so much to have a baby, that God gave me two babies instead of one! I love having boy/girl twins. They are so close and I get the best of both worlds.

Lexi is all girl. She loves watching the tween Disney shows all the time. She plays tennis & volleyball, and loves to draw. Lexi is not shy, she's very silly and loves to be involved in everything. She is the anchor girl for her school newscast, works in the library, on the student council & safety patrol.
Lexi is definitely the boss & mother hen between the two. And, like most girls, a drama queen! Alexis favorite Disney character is Minnie Mouse.

Levi is all boy. He loves sports. Watching sports on ESPN, playing sports games on Wii, or physically playing sports, he's gonna be doing it! Levi plays basketball, football & baseball. He wants to play more sports, but we just can't fit it in. Levi is very laid back and ALWAYS in a good mood. One of favorite hobbies is aggravating his sister & trying to make her scream, whine and/or cry. Levi is a big Dallas Cowboy & Clemson Tiger fan. Go tigers!


I could go on & on forever bragging about my kids about how smart they are, etc... My favorite saying is "There is only one pretty child in the world and every mother has it". That is so true, isn't it?

Our 2009 Christmas Card picture:


I'm hoping to get a good Disney picture from this trip for our 2010 Christmas card picture.


Summer 2010 beach trip:



Picture from our last WDW trip in 2008



I took this picture last week right before they went to their volleyball & football game. They both won that night & Levi made his 1st touchdown!!!








Next Post: How I came up with 'Love Bug' Trip Title
