    ********** Disclaimer: If you are just starting out on this PTR, you may want to skip right to Post 281- Page 19 to get all caught up!! I mean, you are more than welcome to read all about how we got to our final plans, but I am just warning you- there have been MANY changes!!!************

    HI! Thanks for stopping in and reading our Pre-Trip Report for our next adventure in Disney!! We are at the VERY EARLY stages of planning our 2010 trip but I thought I should atleast get this pre-trippie started!!

    We have lot's to figure out along the way...
    When will we go?
    Where should we stay?? (Deluxe maybe!!??)
    What will we eat!!??
    Will we do Deluxe Dining again??
    Who will go?
    What will bring!?
    How will we afford ANOTHER trip to Disney!???

    Let's start with the Cast! - Many of you already know us by now (this being my 2nd Pre-Trippie) but for those of you who don't, my name is Nickie. I work part time at an Investment Firm in Downtown Boston and spend all my free time with my boys and planning Disney trips!!

    Wayne is my husband - known on these boards as "The3rdDisneyboy". Wayne is the best husband in the world- he is my best friend and an amazing father to our 2 boys. Wayne writes/researches for a juice company.

    Our boys!!

    Myles is our 5 year old. This is going to be his 4th time going to Disney. (He went when he was 9 months, 3 1/2, and 5 and he will be 6 when we go on this trip) Myles LOVES the Jonas Brothers. He plays soccer and is starting Kindergarten in September.
    Myles first trip:

    Owen is turning 2 next month! My baby is going to be 2!! I just can't believe it. Pretty soon... no more diapers for us!! This is going to be Owen's
    3rd trip to Disney! (He went when he was 8 weeks, and 22 months and he will be 3 when we go on this trip) Owen is such a happy boy. He LOVES his brother and looks up to him. I can already tell that these boys will always be there for eachother.

    His first trip:

    His second trip:

    So together we make up The Goodys! I look forward to sharing our plans and stories with you all over the course of the next year!

    WELCOME...old friends and new! I am so excited to have started this pre-trippie because I have felt lost since I completed my Trip Report! AND it means we really are going back to Disney... so let the Planning and the Disney Nights begin!!

    I know what you mean!! This Pre Trippie is yours too hun, so make sure to leave comments whenever you want!!

    Hi Momma!! (Is everyone calling you that now!?) Owen's bday is July 27th.. he was born 7. 27.07 (My lucky 7's baby!!) What are you planning? I am so torn. Part of me wants to take Owen to the Cape with just Wayne, Myles and me and then have cake with the family on his actual birthday... but then I feel bad like he should have a party! I really just do not want people to buy gifts- this kid has EVERYTHING he needs!! For the cost of the party we could take him to the Cape and do all the things he loves down there. I dunno!!??

    Thank you!!! and WELCOME to the pre trippie!!!!

    Oh cool!! I love your TR - and I cant wait to hear your plans too. I am so happy that we can all stay in touch and plan together more Disney Trips!!

    Hi Leanne!!! When should I start them!?? I am thinking maybe we will do one Disney Night per month until it gets closer and then do them weekly.... it was alot of work last time.

    :rotfl:ha-ha!! I am glad you liked my trip report!!! Welcome to the new Pre Trippie!

    Welcome!! I am glad you will follow along.. its going to be a long adventure but hopefully at the end, we will have planned another magical trip to our favorite place in the world!!

    Ok so this is not really Disney related.... But I was reading Wendy's Trip Report and the topic of babies has come up... so kind of related!! Anywho... my baby is turning 2 next month. It feels like he was just born and then again it feels like he has always been part of our family!

    Here are some pictures I wanted to share with you all of Owen's first couple of weeks....

    Coming home from the hospital...

    Yes I am. We are in Marlborough. I'm originally from Maine but have been down here for a little over two years. :thumbsup2

    Those are adorable pictures of your boys. So cute! It's awesome that they are so close.

    Awww! The picture of Myles and Owen looking into each others eyes is so precious!! They obviously have a great bond. I hope Emily feels the same way about our baby when it comes! She has already started talking to my belly! So cute! Emily will be 3 1/2 when the baby comes, is that how old Myles was when Owen came along? How did he handle all of the changes?

    Not too far from us!! thank you for the compliment on the boys!

    Thank you!! You just never know how they will be...we got lucky for sure. Don't get me wrong though... these guys fight over toys all the time... Owen wants what Myles has always... Myles liked it better when he had a cute brother to kiss and who just sat there and watched him play... now that Owen wants to play too, Myles doesnt like it so much!! For the most part though they just love eachother and it has been so great to watch them grow. I think you will really like the 3 1/2 year difference in age!! We got the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for Myles and had brought it to the hospital when Owen was born - this was a gift to Myles from Owen.... Well, that sealed the deal! Myles was instantly in love. :rotfl2:

    Hi! :) I just got done reading your TR and found my way over to your next adventure. I wanted to ask where you got the matching Daddy and boys clothes they wore on your trip? I wanted to get something for my 2 yr old and his dad to match on Father's Day.

    So, where are you thinking of staying in 2010? I am just guessing right now it will be the Poly!!
