I'm hijacking this Thread!!!
Who am I? Well I'm Tracy, I live in Northern Canada and I love Disney!

I took a solo trip to WDW September 2012 and there I met a lovely family.


Me and my dear Friend, Judy:

I've been dreaming of going back to Disney ever since I left! As I was planning my way back, I though I could go by myself but what would be even more fun? Renting a house and filling it with my lovely friends! One turned into 7 and now we are all going to Florida!! I can't be more excited that Judy, Pete, Christian, David, Rachel and Lisa are joining me, because they are a super fun family with lots of laughter! They have been through a lot but dont let it keep them down!

Here is another photo of Pete, with their fabulous children, Christian, David, Rachel and Lisa (since, for some reason I never got a photo of Pete when we met )



So, Welcome to our PTR!!!

Our dates are January 12th to 19th!


Along with sharing about planning, (or lack thereof, lol) we will include reminiscing about past trips (Judy, nudge, nudge) and general life. I hope you join in, and share with us!

How exciting is this???? Tracy came into our lives shortly after Lisa's Make a Wish trip and we became fast friends!! She has the best personality, an infectious laugh and a generous heart! When she asked Pete and I if we would come share a house with her, how could I say no!!!???!!! A trip to Florida, with my good friend sounded like a PERFECT idea to me!! My children love her, she is easy to talk to and we all 7 have a lot of fun together...so this should be an AMAZING trip and a great way to get over the January blahs!! I am beyond excited to share this journey with her and she can pick up my slack when I fall down on responses. I am incredibly happy!!! I promised Tracy I would share some stories from our most recent trip as well, it was a doozy!! (and I mean that is a great way).

I love pictures, so I will post a few more in here over the next day or so.

This is our dog Bandit. He is a certified Therapy dog, trained by Rachel, she is his handler. We visit schools, nursing homes and the Ronald McDonald house.

I am so happy for all seven of you! How exciting to have something to look forward to. Tracy, you are very generous and kind. Judy, I am so happy you all agreed to go, I think this is much better than a solo trip. Looking forward to pics of your last trip.

How exciting for all of you to go together. That's usually when we go to get away from Minnesota winters. We rent a house too and love having so much room and our own pool where even I go swimming. Can't wait to hear all about it. Glad Lisa's legs are feeling better. Maybe she just needs a day off from dance, although I bet she would say she didn't. Looking forward to hearing all your plans.

I'm back and OH MY GOSH! I am so excited for the seven of you! Tracy, it's so sweet of you to offer to share the home with Judy and her lovely family. I can hardly wait to hear about all of the plans.

Wow! How exciting! I am so thrilled for you guys and how wonderful of Tracy. I have to admit when I figured out that you were going back, before I read when I was kinda chanting in my head "please let it be May, please let it be May..." Aww well, I geuss I'll have to keep waiting. I'm sure I'll meet you irl sometime my dear freind. In the mean time I am so happy for you. Can't wait to read more.
