We woke up bright and early in Tallahassee, ate a quick breakfast at the hotel and headed out. We arrived in Orlando, at Disney around 1:30. Just driving into the area made us all so excited!!! We got to our hotel and expected to have to wait on our room, but they were able to find us a room that was ready. We wasted NO time getting unpacked and into swim suits. The boys could hardly wait to get in. We headed down to the pool and it was COOOOLD! It didn't stop the boys so poor Zak got in with them while I headed to find our resort cups and fill them for the boys and then made stop at the bar for reward drinks for mommy and daddy! :)
After an hour or two in the pool, we headed back to the room to get ready to go to Disney Springs and have dinner at TREX. Disney Springs was great. Lots of shops and fun food and the boys really loved TREX and all the dinosaurs. The boys designed and made their own Light Sabers and were so proud of them. Zak and I had no idea what we were doing but everyone was very helpful.
Great way to start our trip!

For over a year, we've been planning a trip to Disney World. There has been sneaking around, late night calls to the planner, and many many Pinterest pins. After disagreeing a little bit, Zak gave in, and decided we could tell the boys tonight. (He wanted to wake them up Saturday and tell them to get in the car. I have too much packing to do that!)
Because we wanted to make it special, we did it big.
Maybe too big.
The boys, at first, were a little silly, overwhelmed, and confused about what exactly was going on. Colton didn't want to read anything and I think they were just totally unsure about what was going on and why there was a huge box in front of them.
But, I have to say that I am proud of how the box turned out. The presents I wrapped up inside were our Magic Bands, a couple Mickey tshirts, a backpack we got from the travel agency and an autograph book and autograph mat for the boys to collect signatures. When Chase opened the Tshirts, he said, "Oh clothes." Hahahaha!
After the confusion subsided and the boys calmed down a little bit, they were so excited. When we told them they would have to miss a whole week of school they were OVER THE MOON!
We spent the evening talking about all the fun things we had planned.
The boys LOVED playing in the box with the balloons.
After bath, the boys asked if we could send the balloons up to MeeMaw.
Of course that melted my heart.

Tonight, after 5 seasons of sitting on the side lines cheering on his brother, Chase had his very first tball practice. He is so excited to be an Astro and to have Braxton, one of his best buddies, on his team and have his daddy help coach. On the way to practice, he said, "Mom, do you think we will have a water break!?!?!" I guess he was excited to use his new water bottle. I was so proud of him the whole practice. He went right out on the field with the Coach and followed directions and listened so well. What the coach doesn't know is he's ready for this! He's watched a lot of baseball!!!!
LET'S GO ASTROS!
