We Fly Down in 10 Hours..the kids are in bed and have NO IDEA! ** 3/9: Final Thoughts

I am doing the happy dance right now. The car is loaded up, the house is clean, the tickets are in our wallets...and our flight leaves at 7 am tomorrow. We have kept this a secret from our 5 and 3 year old boys for 6 months with several near-misses. They have no idea that we are waking them up early tomorrow and headed to the airport.
Can we pull it off??? How will they react when their aunt, uncle, and grandparents show up?
Stay tuned!!

Yeah, DH and I are both big talkers, and we have been planning this so long it was really hard to not slip up in front of them, but I think we've pulled it off.
The problem was that the whole family is coming, and every time we all got together we were whispering and talking in code. I'm actually shocked our very nosy and astute 5-year old has not picked up on it yet, but if he had we'd all know about it!
I've made him a journal and got him the guidebook for kids, and the 3-year old has a big Mickey book and stickers in his backpack. We plan to get them to the airport and then give them their mouse-ears from the last trip, then let the camera roll!
I am SO not going to bed and I need to!!

How cool!

Good luck tomorrow - make sure your camcorder batteries are charged up and go get some sleep! You're gonna need it.

Tell us about it later!

Well, we pulled it off! First the surprise in the airport, followed by the kids aunt and uncle showing up, and then finally just before bedtime Grandma and Papaw arrived. We're halfway through the trip now, stay tuned for updates and pics!

I'm in. I want to be able to find this when I get back. I'm surprising my dd (7) on Saturday for our trip on Sunday. Almost been caught a few times on the computer looking at stuff. Fortunately she knows I plan to take her someday. This past Saturday I was packing all day and she had no idea thanks to the large walk-in closet in my room.

I'm so glad it is almost time to tell her.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.

I remember reading your last TR and I really enjoyed it. I was probably a lurker. I am also a fellow Cincinnatian. Have a great trip!

Hello BlueEyes78! Are you back yet? I SOOOO want to hear about the kids' reactions! I'm in the same boat w/ DD11 for the 10th of Dec. (Our DD1 knows all about the trip! ).

We watched the HGTV Disney Holiday special again this weekend and my DD11 was ALL over it...she's gonna be so excited!

Hope it was wonderful! DO TELL!
