We surprised our kinds (DS3 and DD5) last month. It was a last minute trip and we didn't even know if we would be able to go so we decided to wait until last minute. Ever since our trip in Sept. 2012 they've been talking about going back (that was their 2nd trip). We originally weren't supposed to return on November 2014 but then plans changed. They always were saying how they wished we could go back to Disney "the next day". OK, more so our 5 y/o but DS would also say "I go back to Disney" and she would tell him "don't worry, mommy and daddy will take us soon" even though we told her she would be 6 the next time we go. So that Friday, I left work early to pack and when DH got home we had the car all packed and ready to go and walked next door to pick them up. DH asked them what they wanted to do that weekend since we talked about doing something special. DD said "I wish we could go to Disney" so we said "OK let's go!" The look on her face was priceless! Even as we got in the car she kept saying "are we really going?" It was so much fun to surprise them!
