(3X Update & FINAL!! 3/24)*~*EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!*~*A Mother/Daughter Feb 2013 TR!

~*~EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!~*~ A Mother/Daughter February 2013 Trip Report!

Hello all! Serial Trip Reporter here! If you haven't read one of my TR's, you must not be on the DIS much! I'm kind of addicted.

It all started in 2008 when my daughter and I went to WDW with my friend and her daughter. My daughter, Savannah, was just a few weeks shy of 8, and we fell in love on that commando tour of the World!

Since then, my obsession has only grown, if only my pocketbook would grow as well! We did a family trip in January 2012, but this trip was just for me and my girl! A whirlwind trip, 4 nights, 3 days in the park!



Quick intro for those who don't know me. If you are interested and have way too much time on your hands, my PTR is here:
The Evil Spell Has Been Broken! A Special Mother/Daughter February 2013 PTR!

I have quite a few other TR's if you really just have no life and hours of time to spare! Links are in my siggie!

So, a quick intro!

My name is Karen, I will be 40 in just mere weeks! I'm a photographer, runner, homeschooling mother of 3 (my boys are 17 & 18) and I have my own petsitting business that has funded most of these trips! My husband and I have been together for 21 years and we live in rural Missouri. I grew up a city girl, so it was somewhat of a culture shock moving out here! I've grown to love it though, but escaping to Disney is my favorite thing to do!



Savannah, my youngest, is 12 going on 16. She's a joy actually, and I love nearly every moment I spend with her. We have a fantastic relationship and share a love of Disney roller coasters! She is funny, sarcastic, and loves her friends, music, and animals of all kinds. She has an amazing connection to animals. In fact, she "works" for me and is my petsitting assistant. She has grown up helping me with my business.



Our trip was from Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 to Saturday, February 9th, 2013. I'm going to TRY not to finish this TR too fast, I have a habit of updating every single day and then regretting not slowing down and enjoying it more (hey! I do that in the parks too!)

Besides, I have 376 DAYS until our next trip (oh yes! There is another in the works!!!) and have to find some way to drag out the magic!
