We surprised them at Christmas for our cruise last January. (I did a pretty intricate pirate treasure map where they had to search the house.) They keep asking if we can go on another one and they don't know I have booked one for next May. I'm wondering if I should tell them beforehand so they can get excited OR... Our cruise leaves Sunday, we'd leave the house Saturday and that Friday is their last day of school! I almost started thinking we shouldn't tell them at all, but instead go ahead and book a Friday and Saturday night near the port and just pick them up from school on their last day and be like - SURPRISE! We're leaving now for a cruise! That sounds pretty neat, but then would I be taking away the fun of waiting??? Thoughts?
