Seriously guys! All the trip talk is making me antsy. I'm still trying to convince DW that we should go in August before the baby comes this fall. Coming off the trip in January without a plan for the next trip has made these past 3 months drag on. Seeing as I haven't scheduled any of my vacation days for the year so far is driving me crazy!

Hope you all had a good Easter. Weather was only so-so as it was about 50 but we were getting a cool breeze off the lake. Nice day with the family though and now the kids and DW are on spring break. I'm going to be envious of them sleeping in.

I realize i'm looking at it as a sports fan as opposed to a team fan.
I wish we lived closer too. It is about an hour and 45 mins one way to get there. Coming home sucked because i was tired and had a headache from the drunk Oklahoma ---holes i got stuck next to. We got home about 1am and then the easter bunny had to visit yet.

New to the group

I've been a huge Disney fan all my life. As a kid, my dad would load us up in Memphis and head down to WDW once every three years or so. One year we went twice in less than 12 months. I thought I was the luckiest kid in the world that year. I remember to ABCDE tickets, River Country, the light parade on the water, staying in a trailer ("cabin") at Fort Wilderness, HoopDeDo, and watching Mary Poppins at the Contemporary for night time entertainment.

My wife and I went to WDW on our honeymoon 15 years ago and we've been back four times since. We have a family condo at Bonnet Creek and enjoy going there as often as our schedules permit with our three kids.

As the ID suggests, I'm a big UT Vols fan and am roughing it living in Bamaland.

Can I be a member of the fabulous club if I am still about 4 weeks away from being a dad to a son who will love Disney or move out at the age of 5?

Hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend. I just sat through a defensive driving course, which was basically 3 hours of "don't text while driving" repeated over and over.

Why did you have to take defensive driving? Too much texting while driving?

What? You mean you can't do that?

I only took it because it saves me about $50-$60 off my car insurance.
