Once Trevor and I decided to go to Disneyland in the fall of 2013, I was determined to make it a surprise for the kids! I wanted to surprise them and then head straight to the airport. Bags already packed. Homework assignments already arranged. Details all worked out. It was a lot of covert planning and sneaking...but it was all worth it for this moment...
I boxed up Mickey Mouse balloon with a note tied to the end of it. I put a big red ribbon on the box and left it at the top of the stairs "To be opened by all Pettingill kids".
My friend pulled off a similar surprise for her kiddos the year before and lent me all her fun Disney props. It made for such a fun table at breakfast after the big reveal upstairs.
They each had a basket of Disney goodies that included some fun things to do on the plane ride. Plus Disney T-shirts and autograph books!
These kids were pumped to get dressed and head to the airport!!
