DW: we should plan to go somewhere. How about we plan a road trip to Disneyland?
Me: Maybe...how far is that from here?
DW: Oh, I dunno, probably a little less than 2000 miles
Me: Ok so call it 28 hours one way...with the three kids...think we can handle it?
DW: Sure why not?
Me: BECAUSE THAT SOUNDS INSANE!!!!!
DW: What if we ditched the kids for a week and went somewhere just the two of us?
Me: I'd be down for that. Think your parents are up for it?
DW: Nope...your parents.
Me: That's even more insane than a DL road trip...I'll call them right now.
*Insert phone call to parents*
Me: THEY AGREED!!!
DW: Well, where should we go?
Me: Duh! DISNEY WORLD BABY!!!!

BOOM! Kid-free trip May 11-18 staying at POP.
You are going to have an AWESOME time!

I put my box in the closet to stat dropping stuff in to take with us. The kids still dont know that we are going ANYWHERE this summer So I decided to get on the ball and get started since the days are going to start going fast with a crazy schedule from now until the end of the school year.

I attempted to find a make a wish organization for adults to try to get a wish granted for my mom, we just found out that she as at most 1 year to live due to a aggressive form of lung cancer, but no luck they are just not out there.

Having been touched my cancer in my own family, I did a quick search this morning and found a list of organizations on cancer.net. I'm not sure if either of the following groups would fit for your Mom and your family, but I noted these 2 as possibilities:

www.dreamfoundation.org

www.nevertoolate.org (ages 65+)

Blessings to you all.

I just keep thinking it will be warm in Florida. I live in upstate NY, and I feel like we don't have spring, winter directly to summer. Unfortunately it is winter until Mayish.

We are going May 4-11. not staying on site this time as we are taking advantage of the timeshare. This will be our second trip with our DD3. A little worried about staying off site as we had so much fun on our first trip.

Count us in !! We are going May 10th - 18th staying at All Star Music (this was a REAL cheap trip )

It will be myself and my 8yr old twin boys, Jesse and Jayden
My dd, Jillianne and her husband and Disney first timer, David and their children 5 yr old ds Maddox and 15 month old dd Caddigan.
Maddox has only been to Disneyland and is sure he doesn't want to go to WDW (weird kid) but little does he know on his 6th birthday he is going to WDW .. like it or NOT !!

LOL...my half brother went to WDW when he was 8 and he HATED it...again...weird kid. The 15 month DD is going to have a blast! We've taken each of our kids when they're just over a year old and it's an amazing trip. Just gotta go at their pace.

I'm so excited to be able to see my baby granddaughters first time in Disney !! She just learned to walk and is saying a few words .. so she's going to love it.
The 5 year old LOVED Disneyland (we went in October) but he was so anxious he actually fainted at the airport .. so i think he just remembers that.
This will be my twins 10th Disney trip .. they are huge fans .. but have no idea I have this trip planned !! So it will be their first surprise trip .. SO excited i can barely contain myself ..
