May 2011: The Year of Surprises! [TR]

2009 was the Year of the Evil Sun ...
2010 was the Year of the .... well, it was just the year. Perhaps it was the year of Completion? Preparedness?
2011 was the Year of Surprises!

Well ... truthfully, it was more like the year of whining, crankyness, ill-behaved kids, etc. But that doesn't sound very fun, right?

So we will let 2011 be the Year of Surprises, since we kept them coming for the kids! Not only did we surprise them with a trip to Disney, we surprised them with an awesome pool, freedom to spend their own money, a trip to TPL (The Pirate's League), the Storybook Experience, and other little things along the way!

I'll do introductions later, as not everyone has super brains and can remember who we are. And perhaps there will be a reader or two who didn't drop by the PTR.

Once we arrive home and get unpacked and I can go through the pictures and videos, I will start flooding you unsuspecting readers with our adventure! The good, the bad, the ugly. Yep, all of it.

Today is our last day in Disney ... well, technically, yesterday was - since we are off-site. So it just depends on how you look at it. We drive back to TN tomorrow morning - leaving here around 6am.

I'm officially home. We just unloaded the car. I expect to be able to get a good start on the TR tomorrow. I'm sad we're home, but can't wait for a good night's sleep!

Can't wait to tell you all about our adventures. And when I say adventure, I really mean ... all the times DH decided to take the wrong turn because he didn't listen to me.
