Any "no time to plan" tips??? Yep hubster booked a trip as a surprise! He wanted to be there for our daughters 6th birthday at the end of August but what he wanted was booked so he decided to plan a trip between her 6th and his 40th We went last year in October and I had FIVE years to plan that trip. I need some pointers to get ready quickly!! We are not telling the kids about the trip at all, actually going to tell them that we have to visit family in Florida (fortunately my husband does have cousins in Orlando) and then we are going to surprise them.
