I stepped onto the grass on the other side; it wasn't any greener, just different.......A candle loses nothing of its light by lighting another candle......I wasn't born a princess, but if the tiara fits......

Can't Wait!

I am SO enjoying your trip report!! We leave on Saturday and it is really helping me pass through these long few days. (It's also keeping me from doing the not so fun stuff, like pack for 4 people and clean my house! )

Ta Daaaaa Disney Surprise Revealed!!!!!!!!

The driver arrived at 1:15 a few minutes early. Aaron & Ethan were upstairs playing with their racetrack, completely OBLIVIOUS to us scampering to get all the luggage into the car...not to mention if they had just looked out the window they would have seen a driver wearing a jacket and hat
Once all the luggage onboard was completed, we called Aaron & Ethan downstairs, telling them to cut off all TVs, lights, etc....they came down, walked out the front door and Aaron froze
He immediately asked who that was in our driveway....I proceeded to tell him that we decided to hire a driver to take us to dinner Allthewhile trying to NOT COMPLETELY CRACK MYSELF UP!!!!!!!
we get into the van....Aaron is very skeptical...dunno where he gets that from and he is whiteasaghost
We head for the airport....still they are CLUELESS
I am SOOOO LOVIN THIS!!!! Me and Randall keep giggleing to ourselves while my DMIL and kids are in the backseat. Then, because they are pretty darn smart...Ethan and Aaron both look into the back of the van and ask if that is all of our luggage
I answer "I DUNNO" why would we have LUGGAGE GOING TO DINNER??" It seems to suffice for the moment, although I sense they are a bit unbelieving

We come to the airport....its about 10 minutes from our house....Aaron asked why we are there....actually he asks..."we have NEVER flown....why are we at the airport" to which I reply "well, havent you ever been here?"....they have in the past to pick up someone....I can tell Aaron is getting a bit nervous, he has wrung his hands out a gazillion times...i know, i know, i should feel sorry, but I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOO LOVING THIS!!!!

The driver stops, we get out with luggage...Aaron immediately asks...'we have NEVER flown, why are we here???" he is whiteasaghost at this point...to which I very nonchalantly answered...."well boys, we have to take the airplane to get to the restaurant' ...now keep in mind, we have 9:30 reservations at Crystal Palace, so I was telling the truth!!
Aaron was not too thrilled, but he went along.........
We go through all the rigors of check in, I go to order a wine, then FOREGET THAT I CANT ORDER CUZ ITS SUNDAY...ohhhhhh to get into the air

We finally board the plane...keep in mind, we arrive 2 hours early! and i am trying to avoid all and any questions like the PLAGUE!!! Do a pretty good job, too....when can we board so i can get a wine???
Nerves are frazzled, DMIL is sooo excited, DH is thinking this is soooo much fun, which it is!!! and Aaron is a freaking nervous wreck, but Ethan is rolling with the punches....I am so excited i can hardly contain myself because THEY STILL HAVENT FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!!! HOW HYSTERICAL IS THAT???!!

Ok, Ok, I'll give you a nibble.......

Once on the plane, It was me, Aaron and Ethan, then Randall and his mom 2 ailes back....we asked the gentleman across from us if he would switch places with us for about 5 minutes....he was almost non compliant and later learned, that after he spoke to my DMIL he needed a DRINK REALLY BAD..he must have gotten it, or pixie dust found its way to him, because afterward he was soooo nice...anyway...halfway through our very short flght...i missed something called a 50/50 raffle, which would later come into play....much later, so stay tuned!!!
ANYwho....about 20 minutes into our 45 minute flight, I started pulling out gift bags from MICKEY and FRIENDs....
Aaron & Ethan, arriving at the airport, STILL NO CLUE


Aaron on the plane, not sure WHAT is going on, still...


Watching them look out the window:



How we told them? Letters from Mickey, of course!




At some point, Ethan asked was he dreaming



NOW THEY KNOW!!!
