How I told my kids - with pictures!

I debated for awhile about when to tell my children about our WDW trip in May. My daughter has a birthday in March, but I just could not wait any longer! So, I figured on Valentine's Day, it was a wonderful way to express my love by saying - We're going to Disney World!!!!!!"

I set it up like a scavenger hunt, and told them this letter came in the mail for them.


After following the clues, they found boxes with this card.


The great news!


This box was filled with goodies for the trip, then I stuffed it with balloons.


DD's Goodies.


Opening the Boxes! (Click to view video)


The reaction!


We're going to Disney World!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


87 days to go!

So cute! What a great memory. I imagine they will be telling their kids about that someday
