Miss Kathy and Me take on Disney--Update 5/23-- Must Do's -- Epcot -- Mary

Well, here we go again. Are you guys sick of me yet?

If the answer is no, then welcome to another KatMark PTR.

A couple of different things about this PTR. The Mark from KatMark won't be on this trip. And why is that? Because this is a girls' trip and Mark will be staying home umpiring baseball games to make money for our August and December trips. Secondly, I will have a co-author when she has the time. And that would be MaryAZ.

I met Mary here on the DIS a couple of years ago (2010 to be exact) and Mark and I met her and her adorable girls during that trip and spent a couple of park days together.

Then in 2011, Mary, Jeff and her girls and Jeff's parents came at the same time we were there and we had several meals together, did several parks together and even our Andy joined us for a few days of fun too (you might remember the Uppy Uppy, Mr. Andy portion of that TR).

Mary invited me to join her and the girls for a girls trip in January 2012 and although I loved the idea I never thought Mark would be happy about it. But he told me to go for it and the girls trip became a reality. And I spent several days in January 2012 with Mary and the girls at Disney.

Unfortunately, Mary and the girls didn't make it down during Mark's and my annual trip last year (they went in October for Mary's husband's 40th birthday). We had talked about a girls trip again this past January but that didn't work because the girls wanted to do a cruises and they couldn't do both. So I've not seen the girls in over a year.

Mary texted me or PM's me one day and asked about doing our girls trip in June; I reminded Mary that our son was getting married in June. She said, "well, what about before the wedding." And I figured the groom's mom ought to look relaxed and tan for her baby's wedding, so why the heck not. So I told Mary yes and plans were made.

So you have me -- Kathy; I love everything Disney and now that I have an Annual Pass, the more trips I can go on the better. I was fortunate to go three times last year and I have four trips (although one is only one day) this year.

(minus the guy in the picture with me)

And you have my girls (Mary will be doing her own intro and posting recent pics of the girls)...this is my favorite from the first girls trip



So there you have the whys and part of the intro. After Mary gets a chance to do her intro, I'll get to the details, dates, some of our plans, where we are planning on eating and also some DIS meets we will be having during the trip.

Woo hoo! Checking in and it looks like I made the first page, not so easy to do with the popular Ms. Kat!

ETA: Lol, I love the reasoning behind your taking this girls trip before the wedding...tan and relaxed! Totally plausible! And I do love that sweet pic of you with Mary's girls

On to the stars of the trip!!! Please feel free to skip over the shameless bragging.....

Ms Avery is 8 for another 2 weeks (April 3rd) and in 3rd grade. She is a straight A student who is working 2 grades ahead in English and 1 in math. She likes school but her biggest passion in life (for now) is gymnastics!!



She had her first competitive season this year and did great. She will go to the State Meet in April and has a shot to make the regional team. Over the summer she will transition to a more competitive team and spend even more time in the gym which she is VERY excited about. Any place she can do gymnastics makes her happy



Avery also loves the beach and swimming



Favorite
Disney Resort AKV Kidani (our DVC home)
Disney Park Magic Kingdom
Disney Ride Tower of Terror (that's a new one, Ms Kathy will be VERY excited)
Disney Place to eat Plaza
Disney Character Belle

Avery is the more reserved of my 2 kiddos. But once she gets to know you she is a big hugger. She is beautiful,kind,sweet and an all around great kid. I am very blessed.

Next up is Ms Cayley who is 6 and in 1st grade. She is an almost straight A student (B+ in social studies) and is also working a grade level ahead. She is also a gymnast and just had her first meet





Cayley is also preparing to move up n gymnastics. She had a great time on our recent cruise (until she got sunburned)



Favorite
Disney Resort Saratoga Springs
Disney Park Magic Kingdom
Disney Ride BTMR and SM
Disney Place to eat Plaza
Disney Character Rapunzel

Cayley has never met a stranger. She will love on you all day long. Is passionate about all she does. She has a fabulous sense of humor and also is a great kid
