Disney Day 1

Well, we pulled off one of the most exciting secrets I have ever been a part of!! It was brilliant in its covertness. Virtually flawless. We (mostly Marshall) planned a secret trip to Disney World. Yes, we kept it a secret!! On Monday morning we woke up at 3:00, packed the car, got the kids up at 4:45, dressed them, brushed their teeth, and put them in the car. They had no clue where we were going!! B1 figured it out when he saw the terminal sign to Orlando but like the great big brother he is, kept the secret until the others figured it out. We got on the plane and B3 had his first plane trip! He even got to sit in the cockpit with the captain-after we landed of course! While we were on the plane we had the kids convinced that we were just going for the day and that we were there to check out a super new Wal Mart that was being built. When we landed, B2 and B3 saw all the Disney stuff and figured it out. The look was priceless!! What a blast! We did have a kink in the plan though. Once we got to our hotel Marshall realized that his wallet was missing. It caused some stress for a bit but once we got everything taken care of, (thanks Billy) he was more upset about the loss of his sticker. B1 had given him a red smiley face sticker that he has had for about 10 years. It is very special to him so it will tough to get over. We finally got settled into our room and then went and had a yummy dinner. After, we went to Downtown Disney. What a trip! We loved the world's largest Disney store but went nuts in the Lego store!!! Uncle Erik would not be able to come out!! Stay tuned for more adventures in Disney for the Slot Family!! (When I get my computer running again, I'll post some of the fun pictures!)

How fun! When we were little my parents told us we were going on a picnic, after driving for 5 hours we were wondering just where on earth the picnic was supposed to be!! We finally stopped at some park and indeed had a picnic but we didn't head back home... we ended up at Disney!! What great fun, I am sure your kids will remember it always
