Here's the thing I didn't tell you about Mother's Day.
For almost 3 weeks now, Danny and I have known that we're taking a family trip to Disney World this December. His office has their annual Christmas Party in a different city each year, and this year they've chosen Disney World. !!! Go Danny's office. Seriously, how fantastic is that?
We decided to keep it a secret from Hannah for a while. At first we weren't sure if his office would allow us to take her, and we weren't sure we should spend the extra money it'll take us to all go. We finally decided the trip was a go and it was time to tell Hannah.
We wanted to announce it to her in some fun and kind of surprisey way. I checked out some ideas on the web and decided to do the backpack reveal sort of surprise. I bought her a Disney bag from Walmart, and a bunch of silly Princess things at the dollar store. I threw in some travel supplies, and I bought her the Camelbak water bottle with a filter she's been asking for.
I waited till after I opened my presents and then told her I'd picked up something for her too. "For me?" she asked. "It's no big deal," I told her. "Just something I saw and thought you might like."
I handed her the bag. She unzipped it and barely glanced inside before she said,
"We're going to Disney World, aren't we?"
She's clever, that girl. I was all denial. "What? I don't know what you're talking about. Just see what's inside."
I had picked up a few things for Danny as well and shoved them in a Mickey gift bag. I gave him his.
Danny got some travel sized supplies, a different kind of filtered water bottle, a Star Wars shirt and a pack of Disney tattoos.
By that point she was pretty positive we were going, so Danny gave her the details. 5 nights at the Coronado Springs Resort at Disney World. D and I are considering adding a night or two at the new Art of Animation resort, but we'll have to give it some more thought (and number crunching).
