The kids knew nothing! Surprise trip and wedding!
I've finally got around to doing a trip report! Last time I did mine live so it's taken a while longer to finish this one.
This trip was my 4th, my two eldest's 2nd and my (now) Husbands and baby boy's 1st!
I'll just jump straight in, it was an amazing trip in more ways than one. :D
The kids big reveal!
Cameron and Alyssa woke up as usual, thinking they were going to school. They got their uniforms on, book bags ready etc the lot. The night before I had put up a sheet on the wall pretending I wanted to have a back drop to take some pics of them, which I have done before. Really it was to hide the big banner that said 'were going to Disney world Florida'!
About 8:30am Ben rang the house phone and I answered, apparently to the school who had just informed me there had been a power cut! Told the kids they might as well get their uniforms off and we'll watch a DVD. I said I know just the one they can watch, it's great, they've never seen it before, amazing etc. So we put it on and they watch.
They think it's adverts at the beginning like a regular DVD, which is what I wanted them to think, then the video 'broke'. It went all funny, special announcements, something has gone wrong etc.
This is the DVD they watched, skip to 11 minutes as the first part is made to look like adverts (which just happen to be focused on everything we'll be doing!), the fun part starts at 11:00 :D
We filmed it all and of their faces were priceless, we couldn't have asked for a better reaction! We had shock, surprise, disbelief, then pure joy, tears, hugs, excited kids, it was perfect! I don't think Alyssa believed us until we were on the plane! Here are their reactions!
Not long after this the person looking after Cassie, our dog, came to collect her and we were on our way to my mums! We were a little late so we had to rush, went straight to the station and said our goodbyes, then straight on the train. The train journey was fine, went quickly, and soon we were at the hotel. We stay at the Days Gatwick near the airport. It was clean and tidy but an expensive dinner, we were charged £12 for the free transfer they promised on their website, we wouldn't stay there again.
Pics of today are included in tomorrows album :D
