Hi everyone! One of my favorite family photos from our 2010 trip Without further ado, let me get on with introducing my family: DD, Lilian: is our only princess. Her first trip to Disney was last year, for her fourth birthday. She LOVED it and asks to go back or talks about it daily. Lilian loves to dance, run and jump around and is looking forward to having her own part of the garden this year. On her to meet list for this trip is: the mice from Cinderella, Rapunzel and Pocahontas. She also wants to catch up with the Princesses and possibly meet new fairies if they are not working that day. Her favorite character is Ariel though she will throw in another character into mix sometimes. DH, Allyn: is a hard working, fun loving husband and father. He is a software engineer, very technical kind of guy but a big goof ball too. He loves acting, golfing, woodworking/building and gardening. His favorite characters include: Donald Duck, Phineas and Ferb and Sorcerer Mickey. His first trip to Disney was May 2005 and second trip was last September. He admitted after the end of our first family trip he could picture seeing us coming back each year. I don’t think he will have to twist my arm to want to do it either. Me, Stephanie: I am finishing up my last year of graduate school and started looking for a job. We all know how tough the job market is right now but I need to get something—my student loans will be coming due in the summer! Wendy (wlwilliams9) and I have started a business together which has been so much fun. For fun I enjoy reading, sewing, crafting, photography and gardening. My favorite characters include: Belle, Mary Poppins, Tinker Bell and Mulan. My first trip was also in May 2005 and second one was last September. The Details: It is a surprise trip for Lilian. She will have no idea that we are heading down to Disney until we are at the airport. She really wants to go on an airplane and will get to experience it for the first time this trip. I think the way I am planning on surprising her is having one of the Princesses call her at the airport telling her they will see her soon. The other big surprise of the trip will she will be going to Disney with her best friend—Emily (Wendy’s daughter). Those two have been best friends since they met last spring. She will also be really excited to see Leanne’s daughters who we had the pleasure meeting (along with their parents ) in August last year. She will also love meeting the other kiddos along for the big trip at some point in the trip: Mary’s daughters, Kayce’s daughters and Connie’s son. It is going to be so much seeing the kids playing together. When: Wednesday, September 28 through Tuesday, October 4 (possibly the 5th if FD is released for our dates). Where: Pop Century—so excited to stay there as we have never stayed there (or any value for the matter). I think Lilian will love it! Obviously, you can tell from the picture above we went to MNSSHP and we are planning on it again. I am working on my TR from it (long time coming) but I can say this—there is a lot we did not get to do that we are looking forward to going back even though it is just two weeks later then last time. I am looking forward to talking about our upcoming trip and planning to meet you all!
