    Welcome and thank you for joining in with me on this journey of planning! If you have a young child you may get my PTR Title...if not, click here and enjoy some "Tasty Time with ZeFronk!" It's a very fun short. ::yes::

    I am not a weiner dog or a chef, nor is my name Fronk...I am Brook. If you have read my TRs and followed me here, THANKS! Good to see you again! If you are new to my adventures, I'll tell you a bit about myself...

    That's me (at the Grand Floridian Tea! :lovestruc). I'm 29 years old, wife to


    And Momma to


    Joe and I are both techy geeks. I also enjoy the history of Walt Disney and think he was an incredible visonary who was beyond his time.

    We love most all types of rides from simple to the intensity of EE.

    My favorite thing about going to Disney World is seeing the magic of it unfold through my son's eyes.

    Henry (20 months) is a sincere lover of Playhouse Disney...Mickey Mouse Club, Handy Manny and the Choo-Choo Soul short top the list...despite me singing "ZeFronk" around the house ;) Trains and all mode of transportation intrigue my little motorhead! He is very into cars, "ba" (buses) and "trus, trus" (trucks).

    This will be our fourth trip to Disney World, number three for Henry. It is our second DVC trip, but our first one "HOME" to AKV!

    That is our clan...

    but wait!

    There is MORE!

    Who else could be going?

    My DMIL (Grammy), DFIL (Poppa) and DSIL (Auntie KK)!

    :yay: <--FYI...I really like this guy. You will probably see him often.

    Um...ya...so...where are the pictures of the in-laws??

    I've scoured my computer and Photobucket account for quite sometime looking for a decent picture of my in-laws and for some reason am coming up empty handed.

    I know they exist!

    I just don't know WHERE they exist! :rolleyes:

    So, I promise, when I am able to take a few decent shots and/or if I come across some, I will post and 'introduce' you to the fam.

    Who, by the way, are FANTASTIC. I love my in-laws!

    When we purchased DVC we had in mind to take family/friends every other year or so with us. We asked some very close friends of ours, but they cannot swing it this year-so we are looking at 2010 with them - but we still wanted to bring someone with us for this trip. Both Joe and I kept mentioning how fun it would be for Grammy to see Henry at the parks.

    So we asked...and YES! They are thrilled to come with! :yay:

    Up next: How "The Plans" got changed before they were even made.

    Hey Brook! I'm here. We are very familiar with ZeFronk at my house as well as all the Playhouse Disney crew. Can't wait to hear all your plans for the trip and watch Henry continue to grow over the next 226 days!

    Brook- can't wait to hear all about this trip you are planning. I also want to say I think you are headed into my favorite age. I love two year olds, their wonder, their questions! I think the terrible twos aren't terrible at all (now at three- yikes!)
    It will be so fun to see how Henry reacts this trip. Plus this trip will come in the midst of the cold boring long winter... and long after our trip!

    I made it over here! Now, I'll be singing the Zefrank song every time I open your PTR - good stuff I tell you! :up: My kids love that show, Liam says... "look the cooking!"

    We did a trip last summer with my parents and it was such an awesome week. How fun to share it with the ILs!

    Hi Jill! Thanks for joining in!
    Thank you as well for sending Erica my way about the Photopass! :thumbsup2

    I also highly enjoy "Can you teach my alligator manners?" and the Happy Monster Band has some very catchy tunes.

    That is so wonderful to hear about the age 2! Lately Henry has been FUSSY. Sometimes it seems he gets upset that he wants something but can't tell us what it is. And other times, I think he knows, but just plain refuses to tell us. He's getting better though as he learns more words and as we encourage him to "use your words please". I do like sharing in the wonder with him, it's so sweet!

    I don't think I'm subscribed to your PTR! :eek: I really thought I was. Fixing that right now! :sad2:

    Hiya! Thanks for joining in! :goodvibes

    That is so cute, "look the cooking!" :cutie: ZeFronk is a very fun weiner dog.

    I'm really excited about taking our in-laws, the are newbies!

    I'm here...now I want your trip to hurry up and happen so I can go on mine! :goodvibes

    I do not know who ZeFronk is....yet anyways...I'm sure in time Caleb will let me know who they are all. I am now getting acquianted with Handy Manny and all of his tool friends according to my 2.5 yr old newphew!

    Oh and it took me a while to realize who "NYE" was...until I realized New Years Eve! :rotfl:

    Can't wait to hear how the trip with the inlaws go...I too :love: my inlaws! I am a very lucky girl who married into a wonderful family. My MIL keeps Caleb and my 3 yr old niece everyday!
