Hi Everyone, Anyone that followed me over from my PTR http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3074210 already know there were alot of surprises going on this trip. They just don't know what some of them were to be. For those of you that don't want to go over the PTR (and I certainly couldn't blame you) Ultimately, the traveling group was myself - Dee DH - Mark DS#1 (22yrs) D.G. DS#2 (22yrs) D.C. DD#1 (22yrs) K. DD#2 (10... well she is now) M. (or sometimes Miss M.) DDBF (23yrs) E. .... This started out as a surprise birthday trip for our youngest DD. It had been a rough couple years for us with deaths. And she, being 9 needed a happy place to escape to. Honestly, I too needed an escape. The only place I know that can lesson the kind of grief we had, was Disney. So, I began to research and found with out frequent flyer miles, a few Jetblue credits and our DVC we could swing a trip for the 3 of us. Then, it multiplied. This report will agonizingly slowly give you a play by play of how that came about. So for those of you following along from my PTR, thanks for your patience and you soon will see that the wait was worth it. Well, you may not think so, but I do! For those of you just joining, thank you. I hope you enjoy it, and know you will find those that followed over from the PTR to be a great group of people with wonderful input! The plan was for K and E to take Miss M. out for breakfast for her birthday. Very Very early. Using the excuse that K wouldn't be around for the family dinner that was a tradition in our family. What was unknown to Miss M. was this was to be no traditional birthday. While K, E & M were at McDonald I walked our furry family member over to the dog sitters. The most wonderful family. I am truly blessed to call this mom a friend. I didn't worry one bit about Dizzy being there as I knew he was in good hands. I truly am grateful. Even though they were already watching another dog, they took our baby in as well, even if it meant the other dog needed to go to camp. (obviously the owners of that dog were aware that may be the case). I am happy to say all dogs got along famously. First happy magic occurrence. When K, E and Miss M drove up the street they saw a long white stretch limo. Sorry, I didn't get a picture of the outside, but I have some that will follow of the inside. Apparently M. thought 1Direction was in the limo, so a little disappointment there. She barely waited for the car to stop in the driveway before jumping out! All smiles. I need to stop here, due to 2 obstacles. 1) it is 11:51 at night and tomorrow is Miss. M's first day of middle school. (I am exhausted). 2) I haven't uploaded all the pictures yet & I need to add one here. So, I will continue tomorrow. goodnight all! Sweet dreams!
