Yes...and I can promise, as soon as you DO see it, you will never NOT see it again!

Michael is growing so fast, that sometimes he wakes up and complains that his knees are hurting him. I fully expect when he reaches Tim's age he'll want to do nothing but sleep all day. I sometimes joke that I keep expecting the kid to wake up in shredded pajamas, having bust through them during the night like the Hulk!

That's SUCH a great visual!! I can totally picture it happening!

I can't wait to read about Tim's reaction to the surprise.
Well...you can watch it, if you want! I pulled over into a parking lot so I could have the flip and the camera both going at once, lol-

That is wonderful- so he can still play the game he loves. And YOU made ME tear up because you said you did. He IS in that gawky age right now- voice is cracking, pants too short, nose too big, mouth full of braces...so sweet....

You are lucky to be able to do this trip with Timmy. Special moments like these become infrequent as they grow up. Loving this TR so far.
And now you made me cry again!! I felt very, very lucky to spend this time with him- thanks.

UGGG stupid work, got in the way of me enjoying your trippy and now im all the way on page 3.. BOO lol

Have to say your 1st night sounds so relaxing just dinner and the resort. Sushi did look amazing. Love how Tim looked like he was just tearing those wings up too!

Oh my waffle... they all looked so good. How did you choose just one? LOL

And I know I have already told you that you get most aweome mom of the year award but will you adopt me..? That was such an amazing way to surprize him and he fell for it yeah!

Cant wait to read more, especially your cruise. How neat to do a 1 on 1 trip, what a great memory to give them, and you!! I would love to do that with each of the boys.

On a side note.. woohooo 2 weeks YEAH BUDDY!

I'm back! So cool you loved VWL I had the same expectation - we were from the PNW, so I wanted to stay somewhere different and exotic. Then we had dinner over at WCC, and I never wanted to leave. I think it is the most amazing theming they have done! Maybe because it seems so authentic, even the smells like you said. I had the best glass of cab while sitting on a rocking chair and just enjoying the relaxing view. I got homesick and called our parents while sitting on a bench in the back walk at VWL. I can't wait to actually stay there, and now that we are in the South, it will feel different and exotic!

Dinner at Kona Café looks amazing! I will have to remember how filling the sushi is.

How fun the way you surprised Tim! His reaction is priceless! So fun to see his happy face - great seats, BTW. AND you look fabulous!

You pulled it off brilliantly! Love his face when he digs through the goodies. I am sure he was pleased with his seat at the game as well.
You ARE supermom!

Ok- so 2 years ago, I was able to surprise Tyler with a trip to Disney. I was already bringing Timmy for 3 nights, but Pods was ADAMENT that Tyler could not go because he would miss baseball practice (silly Pods!). TWO DAYS before we left, I got on the phone with my baseball "sisters"- end result, we spoke to the coach (from the other team who was supposed to run the practices over break while our coach was on vacay) and he said, "That's ridiculous! Tell Kenny (Pods) to call me! It's middle school- it doesn't matter-go while you can!"

Funny thing- that coach is now Timmy's coach, and when he found out Timmy would be on a cruise over break instead of at the scrimmages- he said, "So- I hear you'll be taking away my boy on a cruise" and I said, "Yea- I heard it's middle school and it doesn't matter!"

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to look at what TYLER'S reaction was at 13 to his surprise. He thought we were going to Physical Therapy, he had a shoulder injury ( yet ANOTHER reason why missing practice was not so important). Funny, how cool HE was at 13, too. And- not to be missed- what 11 year old Timmy's long gone little boy voice had to say from the back seat....

Click to play




I love that Timmy is raggin on Tyler for not showing any excitement- LMAO!!! Where was the 11 year old in our back seat when we were going to the Yankees game??

Loving this already!!

Firstly let me say that Wilderness Lodge is our absolute favourite resort and we have 10 glorious nights at the Villas booked for December

It's wonderful that you lined up such an awesome suprise - you must be the coolest mom right now!

Can't wait to read about the rest of you trip

Love the video. We are surprising the boys on the last day of school with our trip to WDW. We will leave the next day. Matt turns 12 next week and I hope he still will be excited - I think he will . I know Shawn who is 9 will be bouncing off the walls.

Thank you! I was very excited- I was BURSTING, actually- and you can hear it in my voice when I am asking him where we are going and what we will do there- I was just like, "C'MON TIM!!! ANSWER THE STUPID QUESTIONS SO I CAN TELL YOU!!! I hope you can work it out with Beth-

Have to say your 1st night sounds so relaxing just dinner and the resort. Sushi did look amazing. Love how Tim looked like he was just tearing those wings up too!

I was actually surprised at how he went after those wings- he sucked those bones dry!! Normally he doesn't like sauce- but I guess Kona was different.

Oh my waffle... they all looked so good. How did you choose just one? LOL

Timmy chose- I didn't have them- stupid me, trying to be good and eat some protein instead-

And I know I have already told you that you get most aweome mom of the year award but will you adopt me..? That was such an amazing way to surprize him and he fell for it yeah!

I've always wanted a daughter!! Now we can go to the Bippity Boppity Boutique! Which princess do you want to be, Sweetheart?

Cant wait to read more, especially your cruise. How neat to do a 1 on 1 trip, what a great memory to give them, and you!! I would love to do that with each of the boys.

It was a great thing- and then when we got home, a week later we went to Rehoboth alone (well, with his team) too- lots of Mommy and me time this spring!!

On a side note.. woohooo 2 weeks YEAH BUDDY!
YEAH BUDDY!!!!
