Hi all, so I'm going to attempt a pre-trip report again. As a note, I am pretty good about the pre-trip reports and horrible about the whole trip reports afterwards. It has been awhile since I posted. We last went to Disney in January 2016. The plan was to go back in March 2018, but my husband and I ended up doing an awesome anniversary trip to the British Isles last August and decided that we weren't going to make it to Disney in 2018 after all. Anyways it turns out we will be going to Disney, in April, April 1st through April 7th to be exact. I will first do introductions first and then finish up the story. First off the family. This is a picture from the trip in 2016. They small people have grown a bit since then. I'm the one in glasses in the middle wearing the Belle and Dr. Who shirt. I'm a homeschooling Mom to my 3 minions and happily married to the guy in the Olaf shirt. I love Disney and have tried to impart this love to the minions as well. I will have just turned 40, 6 days before the trip. It is going to end up being a major birthday trip for me and the minions. DH is the guy in the Olaf shirt. He is not going to be with us for this trip. He is staying home to do boring things like go to work. Now the minions Minion one will be turning 11 during the trip. He likes Disney, enjoys rides and loves to hang out with his friends and family. He is thrilled to be going to Disney over his birthday. He is a bit sad his Dad won't be there, but he is looking forward to going back to Disney. I'll likely either refer to him as minion 1 or D. Minion 2 will have just turned 9, 2 1/2 weeks before the trip. She is looking forward to the trip and hanging out with her cousins especially the 4 year old. I will likely be referring to her as minion 2 or E. Minions 3 will have turned 7, 3 days before the trip, I did mention it was a very birthday heavy trip on our part right?, and is looking forward to Disney. He is really looking forward to hanging out with his cousin who is 3 months older than him. I'll be referring to him as minion 3 or S. Now for the rest of the group. The rest you say? Yes, see remember the whole I wasn't planning on going to Disney this year thing? Well the rest of the party had everything to do with my plans changing. Anyways the rest of the crew: These are my parents, Nonnie and Pom and my niece little E and nephew R. E is 4 1/2 and R is 7. All 4 of them will be on the trip. This is my sister L and my BIL M. L will be there for the whole trip, M will be there for the last few days. Everyone listed was also there for part of the trip last January. A number of others who were on the January trip however are not going on this trip. Anyways that is everyone. Next post will be how this trip is even happening!
