Hi everyone! Yep, we are back again! This will be our 8th big trip (not counting many, many day trips over the past 3 years). Who are we you ask? Here is our cast of characters for this trip: Me, Me, Erin. A 29 year old, former kindergarten teacher turned stay at home mom to my princess Olivia and wife to my DH. I have loved all things Disney since my first visit when I was 4. I was born in Wisconsin and moved down to Florida when I was 8 and have been here ever since. We live about 1.5 hours from the mouse on the west coast of Florida, just south of Tampa. I am the total anal Disney planner and start planning the next big trip on the way home from the last one! DH, Toby. A super hard working 26 year old daddy to Olivia! Toby works extremely hard so that I can stay home with Olivia! Toby will be the first to tell you that I am totally obsessed with Disney, although he does not share in my obsession (yet!). We went to Disney while I was pregnant with Olivia and I have been dragging him along ever since. He says Disney is just "ok", but while we are there he is having a blast and loving every minute of it. DD, Olivia, or Livy. Our 4 year old princess who, like me, loves all things Disney! She is our little miracle baby. Olivia was born at just 32 weeks, weighing 4 pounds and measuring 16 3/4 inches long and spent 3.5 weeks in the NICU more than an hour away from home. She made a total turn around, and now you would never know (other than being a bit on the small side) that she was a preemie! This trip is to celebrate her 5th birthday!! Olivia loves every minute of our Disney trips and asks on a daily basis to go back! Also joining us for a couple of days of this trip will be my mom, or as Olivia calls her Gumma. She is a 50 something awesome grandma to Olivia. She has spent a few days at Disney with Olivia and I over the past couple of years: a day at DHS when Livy was 2.5, a day at MK when Livy was 2.5 and a day at MK just this past December for Olivia's 4th birthday. We are not sure when mom will be joining us, but the plan is for her to drive up early one morning, join us for the day and then stay at the hotel with us for the night before heading home the next day. I tried to convince her to come with us for the whole trip, but she isn't interested in that. Well, there you have it, the "who" of this trip. Coming up next the "what", "when", "where", "why", and "how". Please join in!
