I am so glad I found your TR. The surprise for your daughter was too cute! We are leaving for our 2nd trip in August and we still have not told our DD. I think I will borrow your idea and surprise her on the day we are leaving. We are leaving Friday afternoon, so I can have a bag with a new swimsuit and her autograph books that I made for her in there and let her know we are leaving that afternoon. She keeps asking to go back and we always just say "hopefully soon!"

Can't wait to read more of your adventures.

OMG! Maddie is too adorable in the reveal video! Love the "diving suit", and how excited she got about each and every thing!

Can't wait to hear more!

Yay! A new TR! I loved the surprise video! I'm a first grade teacher, but have spent all of my years working with children ages 7 and younger. I just love how they see the world! It was so cute to see her explain to Uncle Corey that he was going to have to watch the dogs. It was like she felt bad being so excited with him standing there Too cute!!

BTW, Kadence thinks her favorite color is now Sparkle!

LOVE the video! She's a total doll!

We laughed so hard at the dogs loud barking, pooping and vomiting!

I don't which is my favorite part - her excitement over the "diving panties" or when she's talking about the dog pooping on the carpet. Gotta love kids - you just never know what's going to come out of their mouths!



Oh yeah - Ed will watch golf & tennis & Nascar....I don't know which one of those bore me the most.

Reid still loves Mickey Mouse too! He actually loves most of the Disney Junior shows still. Octonauts has become a favorite in the house. We like the litte songs they sing at the end. He's also getting into superheroes now so it's a mixture of Disney Junior & Spiderman, Avengers, etc. I think we're going to take him to see the Avengers movie this coming weekend. Should be a nice break form unpacking.

That's hilarious about the watch! Oh, yes! Y'all are definitely in trouble with her. By the time she becomes a teenager, she'll want clothes from all of the top designers. Forget the Gap!
Thank you! I have no idea where the diving panties came from. She's a nut. And as for the dog stuff, they don't often poop or vomit on the rug. Maybe she was imagining what would happen if they were alone for too long? Crazy kid.

DH doesn't watch Nascar, but Cory does, so I've sat through more than my fair share of races too. Also good nap times!

Mads would happily watch Disney Jr. all day, but she's getting into Barbie lately and loves those videos. Mads watches superhero movies with her Uncle Cory all the time!

My little fashion diva already has very strong opinions about what she wears, she better get a job when she's a teenager.

I know you were so busy before you left and cannot wait to hear all about the trip. You deserved a break and what an awesome place to take it. There is no doubt you loved CBR, but I am anxious to read your thougts.

I highly recommend you take the cruise Bryan wants. You will all love it.

Yay! I'm glad you're here! I'm don't think you can tell on the video, but I was crying a little too!

We were pretty busy, but having the trip to look forward to made it bearable. I can't wait to go back. Unfortunately, DH won't have vacation time for a year, so that'd be the earliest we could go.

CBR was great!!! I'd recommend it to anyone!

We will have to take a cruise one of these days. I think I saw that they have one cruising to Hawaii now? That's my idea of heaven!!!

I love the reaction video! Maddie is so sweet
Welcome! Thanks for the kind words!

Enjoy your vacation, I'll be here when you get back!

I think it is so funny that Michael Kors is her favorite designer, she has great taste!

You guys are in the hotel for a month, right? Please let me know how it goes. We're going to be staying at an extended stay in Norfolk for about three weeks while we are waiting for DH to deploy. I'm dreading living in a hotel, so if you have any tips to make it easier, I'm all ears!

can't wait to read about the trip!
Thanks for joining in!

It was so hard to keep the secret that last week. I wanted to tell her every 5 minutes! She was so excited!

She does have good taste, so good that it might bankrupt us

We are in the hotel for the month. My 1st piece of advice would be to plan on making a Target run the first day. We needed to get something for our clothes--I ended up with a freestanding canvas shelving unit and lots of air freshener. Seems as though the other "residents" here really enjoy curry, and the hallways and elevator reek of it. Yankee candle reed diffusers rock! Also, pack yourself lots and lots of books, puzzles, etc. I have longed for downtime like this forever, but when faces with nothing but downtime, I'm going a little crazy!! If you have any specific questions, let me know, I'm becoming an expert!!

I love the surprise video, so adorable. I don't think I could keep the secret.

My husband plays risk and some game like risk, (conquest maybe?) CONSTANTLY on the iPad. He also watches golf/talks about golf too much, lol. I just do not get the appeal. The only shows on my DVR are reality shows! I'm glad to know I'm not alone. I'm a big baseball fan too.

We will be staying at CBR on our trip at the end of the month but in a pirate room. I'll be interested to hear what you thought of it. I'm jealous you did DxDP, we would like to do that one day.

Can't wait to read more about your trip!
HI! Thanks for joining in! It was super hard to keep that secret toward the end. I really, really wanted to spill it.

That's a lot of similarities! I just don't understand the golf thing. It's ok to play I guess, but to watch? Snooze. I love me some reality TV-Top Chef, Project Runway, and Amazing Race are my absolute faves, but I watch much, much more than that!

You'll love CBR! It's so pretty and beachy. I'd love to stay there again. DxDP was fun. I think we'd also do that again,but with a few tweaks.

Congrats to your DH on the new job! I think another trip to WDW is a great way to get away from the stress of moving.

By the way, great title!
Indiana huh? So that makes you a Cardinal fan? or just ambivalent?

Glad that you're here! Hope that it'll be entertaining!

Thank you, I'm really happy for DH. I can survive almost anything if you tell me I can go to WDW afterward!

And thanks!! I think most people can relate to the MiL issue

Yay for a surprise trip! It was so hard to keep the secret, but I'm glad that we did. She asked daily when we'd go back.

Thanks for joining in! I'm not sure where the 'diving suit' came from--but it's classic Maddie. She's a nut!

Who knows where she comes up with this stuff? Diving Panties? Certainly not a part of our vernacular... Thanks for joining in!

Thanks for joining in! I'll bet you hear crazy 'diving panties' stuff all the time!

She did feel bad for Uncle Cory, but once she realized that he was happy for her, she moved on. Those dogs are her main concern all the time. She even teared up at bedtime at WDW because she missed them.

Yay! Hi guys!

Please tell Kadence that I think sparkle is an excellent favorite color.

Thanks so much! I'm so glad that I videoed it.

Yeah, poor dogs. They don't often act so irresponsibly--she must have been imagining the worst...

Hi! Glad that you're here!

How's the pregnancy going? Feeling ok? I'll bet you're very ready to be on leave from work.
