DH and I are having our 10th anniversary this coming September and have planned a DL vacation since we love all things Disney. We have rented DVC points and have a studio at the Grand Californian. Being it is our 10th anniversary trip, we are going just the 2 of us. I think we are going to have a grand time. No naps or cranky tired kids to deal with, and really the freedom to do grownup things - like stay late and have a drink or two! That being said, the Mom in me is feeling terribly guilty for not taking our boys. We did just take them to Disney World this past June, so they did just go, but they both keep asking when we are going back because they both want to go back so badly. They know we are going and my 6 year old keeps asking if we would "pleeeese" take him. I feel so selfish since I know they both really want to go. I'm a softy when it comes to the kids (I guess that is why I am a teacher). DH, on the other hand, really doesn't want to take them and wants to have some time to really enjoy the parks in a way we can't really do with the kids there. I keep telling myself that we wouldn't take the kids with us if we were going somewhere else like Vegas or one of those Sandals places, so it shouldn't matter where we are going. We are going to celebrate "us" and 10 years of marriage which in this day and age is a pretty good accomplishment. It would add quite a bit of cost to take them since then we would need 2 more plane tickets, 2 more park tickets, and more money spent on food and other incidentals, etc. We might be able to save up and take them at Christmas in 2016, but that seems so far off. They would be 9 and 7 then. Ugh, don't know what to do. I feeling like a big ol' meanie!
