Brent and the kids are going to see Cinderella and Ariel, and celebrate birthdays!
I am back and ready to tell you all about our upcoming trip to Disney. This time it’s just me, Brent, Cinderella fan extraordinaiire, my daughter Jordan, and my son, Brendan. Those of you who have followed us before know that it’s usually my lovely wife, Liz and myself. Well this time it’s just us and our kids. Liz took Cheyenne back in November, now it’s our turn!
Introductions are in order. My son Brendan is 13 years old, (14 at the end of March) His favorite character is Mickey Mouse. He’s in 8th grade now and will be a High School freshmen at the end of the school year. He loves video games and sports. It is not uncommon for him to find himself in the middle of a pick up game of basketball or Floor Hockey at our local YMCA. He will probably strike out on his own a lot on this trip as he is a very independent young man. I’m certain Disney Quest will see a lot of him on this trip. He was last here in August of 2010. Here are a few pictures:
His hair is much shorter now!
Next up is my daughter, Jordan. She is 15 (sweet 16 in March!) She is almost as big a fan of Ariel as I am of Cinderella. She joined the High School swim team this last Fall and can't wait to tell Ariel all about that. I myself was inspired by Jordan's swim accomplishments so I am in the process of learning how to swim. Maybe I'll get a chance to tell Ariel about that too. She wants to meet Ariel as many times as possible. She also hasn't been since August of 2010. Here are a few pictures:
And last but not least, your storyteller, Cinderella`s biggest fan, Liz`s husband, Brent. 45 year old devoted Father, husband, and Cinderella idolizer. Over the last few trips my wife and I have made we have managed to meet and leave such an impression on the princesses that they remember us. In fact when Liz and Cheyenne went by themselves without me many of the princesses were asking where I was. One of them even kissed a picture of myself and Cindi.
Here's a few pictures of me and Cindi from past trips.
Here are some pictures of the three of us:
Since both kids birthdays are in March and our trip is in late February, we are celebrating their birthdays while we are there. I think we will have a special connection with Aurora because of what happened on her 16th birthday. . Jordan's 16th will be March 13th.
