    Talking about Westerly sure brought back a lot of memories! We lived on Shore Road and I spent many a day with my friends on Misquamicut Beach(forgive the spelling, it has been a long time!) May I ask how old you are? Just wondering if perhaps we went to school together at Dunn's Corners Elementary!

    Amy, I am 35. But I did not go to Dunn's Corners, but my husband did and my kids do now. We live in Dunn's Corners. It's so funny that you lived here when you were little. And even stranger that you went to Dunn's Corners.

    I would like to thank you all for supporting my mother in this surprise, and I would also like to thank my mother for this surprise!!!!! :cheer2: She had always been the best in my eyes :cheer2: , but this time she has certainly outdone herself, dad too of course :thumbsup2 . The thought that I get to share my first trip to WDW with all of the people I love the most certainly brings tears to my eyes and the goose bumps shortly follow. I have always dreamed of going and I may be a 25 year old woman but my poor DH will have 3 children to look after on this trip since I am sure I will be the same as our 5yo DD. I have been reading posts on here and just happened to email my mom about this site, what a small world it is that this would be the one that she uses as well. Anyway, thank you all and Mom Dad you guys are the best of the best. :teeth:

    That $129 rate was too good to pass on. However, I am really considering renting points for the last 4 days.

    Like I said, I'll be watching out for you and yours!

    That is so awesome!! I wish my parents or in laws would come with us. Both sets of grandparents are snowbirds in FL for winter and will be there during our trip but have no interest in disney.The way you managed to pull this off is terrific. Bring lots of film!! :cool1:

    Thank you so much mom and dad! Liz and I can not wait to go on the trip. We got chinese the other night...what a dissapointment. We got to the fortune cookies and they must have given us the wrong ones because we didnt get anything good in them! :rotfl2: I really dont know what to say... Here I am, an 18 year old guy tearing up over reading posts on a forum lol. I want you all to know I love you more then anything and even though I left home at a very young age (16) and have had my problems while i was at home, I wouldnt be where I am today without the 2 of you. A very strong woman that can make it through anything and a man that keeps the whole family strong and is good at what he does. Mom, thank you for teaching me everything from playing baseball to being a person with a big heart. Craig (dad), thank you for the skills you have taught me that will carry me and my family (when i have my own) on from day to day. I am sorry for rambling everyone, this just brought up ALOT of emotions and wanted to let everyone on here know a fraction of what my parents have done for me.

    JAC & CO :woohoo:

    What a wonderful thing you're doing. :stitch: Ok, I'm going to add my 2 cents. I'm a single mom(1 kid) and was very good friends with another single mom who has 2 kids. She went to school at night for about 2 years. I told her that when she graduated I would take her kids along with mine to Cape May, NJ. We had also wanted to plan a trip to WDW. We had a tiff last April, then she met someone and is now engaged. They'll be getting married in Oct. 2006. We both lost our jobs within a week of each other Aug. 2005. We are slowly starting to talk again. We haven't gone for a long weekend at the beach like I had planned, but, maybe in a year or two I'll suprise her and her family with a trip to WDW. I'll break the news to her like this. pixiedust:
