A few weeks ago we surprised the kids with a trip to Disney. We had a BLAST and it was SO fun waking them up in the morning and giving them such a fun surprise. We woke them up bright and early and told them to get dressed, that they weren't going to school, and then come down stairs that we had a surprise. We hid the letters "D" "I" "S" "N" "E" "Y" front he scrabble letters. We then gave them quick clues, they each found two letters. They then put all the letters on the kitchen table and had to figure out what the word was. It took them a minute but they finally got it and they were SOOOO excited!!!
Once we got to the airport, they had another surprise!! Some friends of ours from St. Peter were going too, and they were at the airpot. So the kids played with them in the airport for a while, and then the final surprise showed up…..the KIEWIETS. The Kiewiets were coming with us and we had planned our entire trip together. The kids had so.much.fun!!!! We played at the parks, swam, bbq'ed, did the parade and fire works, Hollywood Studies, Magic Kingdom…….Maddie rode her first roller coaster, Jack rode all the big rides…..it was just a blast!!!
And then all things must come to an end and we had to come home……..and the kids had a TON of homework to catch up on from missing a week of school. Especially Jack, his teacher showed no mercy!! Sent it ALL home!!!! But he did it, and with pretty minimal complaining. Totally worth it tho, and I think he would agree.
Since our trip Maddie tells me randomly, about every other day, "Thanks for taking me to Disney World."
