A couple of months ago a local TV morning show (Breakfast Television) offered opportunities to win trips to Walt Disney World. You have to know Hannah and I were all over that and sent in our picture within minutes of the contest being announced! We didn’t win but someone who works in the same building as me did win and through the friend of a friend of a friend, we were introduced.
Check out this adorable picture they created and submitted. It’s easy to see why they were selected!!
As Tammy began to prepare for her trip (a Disney newbie!) we emailed questions and answers to one another and quickly realized we should meet in person as we could accomplish much more in a short amount of time. Well, emails and 1 lunch turned into more lunches, walks around the block at break and a wonderful friendship was born! As we planned her trip we discussed our kids and quickly realized if we got them together we were sure they’d hit it off just as the moms had!
They went on their amazing trip of a lifetime in mid-April and Hannah and I were glued to the TV each morning to catch glimpses of them. We saw them! Cheered! Took pictures and sent them immediately. Modern technology can be such fun!
Needless to say they fell in love with Disney too and cannot wait to go back!
When they returned home Tammy and I got together to discuss their trip and see pictures. It was neat to hear about their trip! We have continued to get together and it’s neat to realize that her winning a trip to Disney with BT meant a new friendship for the 2 of us.
Fast forward to last night when we finally got our kids together for the first time. The kids had heard about one another but not met in person. Tammy invited us over for a swim. Hannah thought she was going to baton but you should have heard her scream when she found out it was cancelled and we were going to Gage and Payton’s for a swim instead! Wish I’d have the video camera running then.
As we hoped, the kids hit it off immediately and were quickly ready for a swim. First jump!
Tammy and I are both so thankful for our new friendship and now the one that our kids share too. I see more fun evenings together this summer!
