This one single word brings up joy and excitement in my family. Last year in May we took the family to Disneyland. It was the first time for the kids – and the best part was that it was a surprise!
The kids thought we were going to Seattle to see where Ryan grew up. Seattle is in the completely opposite direction yet they still didn’t catch on. We drove for two days (stopping in Nevada overnight) I really can’t believe we were able to keep the surprise. Actually Ryan is great at keeping surprises – I can’t believe I was able to keep the surprise in. The kids didn’t figure it out until we brought them to a Disneyland Resort map and had them read it. I think my oldest was starting to figure it out – at first he thought we were at some Disney type event like Disney on Ice – he had no clue we were at Disneyland. The younger two were completely 100% surprised. Whenever a bus drove by or anything with Disney on it we pointed out something new in the opposite direction – so they were pretty clueless. I took video with my camera of the moment they found out. We had just finished driving for 6 hours so we were pretty tired and frumpy – but it is still my most favorite video. I hope you enjoy it as well 🙂
