Throwback Thursday!

Why not? I thought it might be fun to look back for a little nostalgia clapping

My very first visit as an adult and together as a couple was April 2001. Joe surprised me with a trip. We had been together 2 years by then.

I had visited once as a kid in 1971 - I was 8 and don't remember much. So my initial reaction was "Disney World? Like, the place for kids? Huh. Well, ok, any vacation with you is sure to be great!"

Little did I know. Little did he know!! I got hooked fast. Here are some pics from that trip. Post your oldies but goodies!! I'd love to see.

This brings back memories. I didn't post any pictures of my wife because she'd kill me if I did.

That was in Toontown in 94 I think, and let's not talk about hair (or lack there of) please.

Oooh I'll have to dig out some of my old pictures! My sister was just going through old photo albums and found this one of me circa 1992(ish?) and sent it to me while Jon and I were there in July and asked me to recreate it so of course I just had to!

oh goodness, I went a few times when I was younger. I will dig those photos out. I don't even know the year. Had to be in the early 90's (I mean look at my hair!)

One of my oldest and bestest friends got married there in 2002. I loved that trip, I mean really loved it.

I ALWAYS wanted to go back but my ex-husband wouldn't allow it. Needless to say there is a really good reason I am not with him any longer.

Joe and I got together in late 2010. I finally got him talked into going in 2012 as a family and we have been going back ever since.

Maybe our Joe's should get together and discuss where they went wrong with us LMAO!!!! laugh laugh wink wink
