So Excited!

We had so much fun on our first trip to Walt Disney World with our grandchildren last January that we thought we would do it again.

We gave them the trip last year as a Christmas present.  I was going to do that again this year when I realized that I was setting myself up for a new tradition.  And one that probably wasn't always going to be...
So, we decided to give them the trip for their birthdays instead.  

We left on a very early flight on Saturday.
We didn't tell the kids until Friday night.


We thought this time that Bob and I would just take the 3 big grands by ourselves and only go to Magic Kingdom for a few days.  A mini trip if you will.
But, I quickly realized we couldn't leave Jackson (2 1/2) home, so that meant Jessica would have to come too.  Well, then Laura wanted to come also.  
So the 8 of us would go for a few days and just do Magic Kingdom.

The kids came over after school and loved the table and wondered what it was for.  I told them it was a surprise birthday party and that led to speculation about whose?  Well, our Ben's birthday is in a few days so they were convinced it was for him. 

A few things to fill their treat bags for the airplane.

To say they were excited was an understatement.  I think, at first, when I told them, they thought I was kidding.

Of course, Jackson doesn't know what's going on, but he loves Mickey!

After eating some Mickey chicken nuggets and other goodies, they went home, very excited, to go to bed early and be ready for our 6:00 AM flight.  

More to come.

That's it.
You win the award for the most awesome Super Duper Grandparents in the World.

You wouldn't be interested in adopting a rather vintage blonde as your grandchild, would you?
Nah, probably not...

BTW, what an adorable grin he has!
