Sometimes I think we have lost our minds completely. That’s how I felt when we booked a Disney vacation 30 days out. We were having a conversation about vacations and decided, “lets go to Disney next month!”
We decided we would not tell the kids until the day before we left. On Easter morning as I was drinking my coffee, I checked my secret countdown. It was 10 days closer. I talk to Seth and told him I wanted to tell them that day. He agreed.
After the Easter Bunny hype died down, we dressed for the day. Before we headed out the door, I sat the kids down to tell them some bad news. I told the girls they would not be going on their field trip which was coming up. They look devastated. “Why!?” I told them that they would be going some place better. Seth then walked up with a box to reveal our Magic Bands. I had goosebumps all over when they just stared wide eyed. The top of the box read “10 days.”
Seth and I received the tightest hugs – it was the best moment. We all could not stop smiling!
This will be Easton’s first time meeting the mouse, and I think I’m more excited than the kids. It’s just a magical place, and I can’t wait to see their little faces light up.
