Guess what kids, we’re going to Walt Disney World!

27 Apr

In just 11 days our family will be heading down to Florida for a magical vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. As many of you are aware, I have been invited to the 2013 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. For over a month my wife and I have kept this a secret from our kids. This weekend, we finally shared our big surprise with the kids. 

Before we shared the big news, my wife had the brilliant idea to make a countdown chain with our boys. She started cutting strips of paper and told Robert to decorate it with Disney drawings. Earlier in the day he had been pretending we were packing for a trip to Disney World, putting his Disney toys and stuffed animals in various backpacks and bags. Robert began drawing his favorite parts of Walt Disney World on the strips as William put his mark on them as well.

Once the coloring and decorating was finished, my wife assembled the chain and we hung it up in our living room. As you can see from the video, Robert figures out the announcement after about a minute and a half. Nonetheless, we had a lot of fun surprising them like this. It was our first time keeping an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World a secret, which made it all the more exciting for us. 😀

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday | Animal Kingdom Surprise

27 Jun

Four random photos from our Disney Social Media Moms trip appeared in the photo stream on my iPhone yesterday. The funny thing is, they didn’t appear at the time I took them and I was disappointed. What a nice surprise to have them back! Of the four, this one was my favorite. I’m glad to have this self-portrait shot of myself and William. We were waiting on big brother Robert, Mommy and Grammie Sue to get off of Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. William had just woken up and I snapped this of myself and him. He was still a little sleepy, but what a sweet face!
