I am just loving that video

I can't believe you guys were as awake as you were since you were up that early in the morning during our DisMeet.

Waiting for more.

Absolutely loved your video and your kids are just gorgeous. Between thank-yous, tears and smiles you must have been so proud of them (and yourselves for pulling it off)

Awww...thanks! Yeah we were pretty tired at the Dismeet. Oldest DD kept asking "can we go back to the room now?" I thanked them profusely for coming with me. They are a pretty great group of kids...

Thanks, D~! We will always cherish that memory, and I am so glad we got it on video. Of course we will NEVER be able to surprise them again, Jillan will be on to us in no time flat. Now we can let the kids help us plan. Besides, I HATED having to keep my big mouth shut!

Thanks Lia! I am trying to raise the next generation of Disers, here. I am so blessed that now my husband has gained a wonderful appreciation for WDW. He has promised an annual trip now...

We have done our best to teach our children to appreciate things in this crazy selfish world we live in. They did make me proud!

Thank you so much. It was such a special moment. We still talk about it. It made DH and I feel so good to be able to do this for our children.

DAY 1, MARCH 8TH 2012...CONTINUED

Today's adventure picks up where we left off....after we revealed the BIG SURPRISE! The kids ran in the house to gather last minute toiletry items, then we were off to the Park and Fly. We arrived in good time, and the shuttle was waiting. There were three other couples in the shuttle and our kids proceeded to tell them all about the surprise and our trip to Disney. It was a great ride to the airport, our fellow shuttle riders were very kind and gracious to the kids in all their excitement.

The airport on this particular morning was quite empty. I guess on Thursday mornings at 6am, the airport is really not "the place to be". This was great news for us since we were able to get our bags checked and get through security in about 15 minutes! This left a good amount of time to get some breakfast.

Let me just digress here a little and go on a small rant. The Nashville airport's fast food restaurant of choice is Burger King. I am NOT a fan of Burger King at all. I have, however, been able to get a sausage mcmuffin sandwich at our local BK a time or two and it is not bad. I was fully prepared to have this for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. The kids and I stood in line at BK to order breakfast while DH went across the hall to Starbucks to grab a cup of "breakfast dessert in a cup" (a vente mocha with whipped cream). I got up to the counter and let the kids place their orders. I then proceeded to tell the lovely cashier that I would like a sausage mcmuffin sandwich and a small coffee, please and thank you.

"We don't have mcmuffin sandwiches."

"What?!? But I get them at the Burger King at home."

"We don't have mcmuffin sandwiches."

"Well, okay, I guess I will just have a sausage biscuit."

So, we got our food and found a table...


This is the kids right before we chowed down...notice there is no Brian in the picture? He is STILL waiting in line at Starbucks for that beautiful "breakfast dessert in a cup".

Here is my breakfast...


I ate just the sausage, because I don't like their biscuits.

It was right about the time that I took my first bite that we had our first spill...yes, I did say our FIRST. This means there are more to come. We got the spill cleaned up and I took a drink of my coffee...YUCK! Good thing DH was just coming to the table with his "breakfast dessert in a cup." I found a water fountain, poured out the offending brew and filled my small cup with the good stuff from his big cup.

After we finished breakfast, we all headed to our gate to wait. Our flight was running on time. We got to board in short time, and we took a couple of photos in the plane.





Our flight went smoothly...until Jillian spilled her ENTIRE cup of airplane Dr. Pepper on herself. Those airplane napkins are just not big enough for those kinds of spills! Our lovely flight attendant brought some larger napkins quickly and Jillian basically had to sit on a stack to get her "nether regions" to dry before landing.

We had a short landing in Ft. Lauderdale where some passengers got off and others got on. In this transition we were able to get seats in the very front of the plane...quicker to get off at MCO! The kids wanted to switch up seating arrangements and I ended up with Gabriel this time. Keep in mind that this flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Orlando is extremely short...but they STILL served drinks again...guess where this is headed...Yep, Gabe spilled his drink on himself and the breifcase of the nice businessman next to him... Have you kept count? That is THREE spills in just about THREE hours. We are a VERY talented family!

The rest was smooth sailing. We landed at MCO, got down to the Magical Express counter and were soon on our way to our happy place...on a Disney Cruise Line bus!

Stay tuned...in our next installment we will discover where the SQUIRREL portion of the TR title came from!

Your reveal video is great. That should be sent to Disney. Your little boy saying thank you and your dd crying had me in tears.

Okay, since she didn't say where the SQUIRREL portion came from, I'll go ahead and spill the beans.

You see ... well ... okay, here's the deal.

No, I'm really not that mean.

It sounds like your arrival day was similar to ours. Granted, we only had two spills, but we only have two kids.

Honestly, since BK switched their coffee a few years ago, I haven't been able to tolerate it. I tried it once after the switch ... asked them if it was burnt or something (or spoiled ) and a manager tried it and said it was spot on. YUCK! Never again!

And I can't believe they didn't have english muffins! Lame! I'm not a fan of their biscuits either. Do they deep fry them? Because they are crispy and GREASY. YUCK!
