I am here to prove otherwise. On the other hand, I feel no need to prove anything. Think what you like.
This is a special scrapbook that is exclusively for something special that my family began a few years ago.
If you can't read the handwriting on the note, this is what it says:
"We were blessed to be able to purchase a membership that will result in great trips for the next 48 years."
This is the title page for the scrapbook in which I intend to chronicle all our great trips for the next 48 years.
Each trip will get one page to record who enjoyed the trip and where they went.
Our first trip using the Disney Vacation Club was in 2006 while Robert was on his mission. Brian and I took the girls to Disney World for Thanksgiving. What a wonderful, memorable time. We decided we could get used to this. The accomodations were beautiful and the access to the parks was very easy.
The following year we needed to show Robert what this marvel was all about and we returned to Disney World for the week falling between Christmas and New Years. It was not a handful of days after this trip that he met his lovely Josalyn in Idaho.
We were happy to contribute our DVC points the next year for a Honeymoon Cruise for Robert and Josalyn. They sailed out of California for a week along the Mexican Riviera. How fun to be able to offer them such a memorable beginning for their lives together.
2009 found us all together in Florida for the Christmas Holidays, including a few additions to our family. We seem to be growing. We spent time at Vero Beach as well as Disney World. There is a glare on my photos that is distorting the images. Sorry about that.
After the Wedding Extravaganza of the Summer of 2010, Erica and Derek slipped away quietly for a cruise to the Caribbean for their Honeymoon. Again, Disney Vacation Club Points saved the day. All my money had been spent on the wedding so I was thankful to have this alternative method to pay for a great trip.
When we joined the Disney Vacation Club, we were told that it would take about seven years to reclaim the value of our investment. In looking back over the past amazing five years worth of "Trips of a Lifetime", I believe we have regained our investment already. And guess what? We have 43 more years to enjoy the same caliber of vacations.
Hmmmmm.....Where shall we go next?
