We even went as far as getting up for school, packing lunches, driving up to the school for drop off (we nearly ran over the principal!) As we drove to school we made statements like "Wow! It sure is a beautiful day! It would be a shame to spend it inside!" and "What should we do today? We have this great rental! We could drive almost anywhere!" As we pulled through the drop off lane I told Robert to just pull through and we'd find a spot to park. Darn, nowhere to park! We pulled down the block and asked Calder if he minded walking from there (something we've never done!) He looked confused but said "OK." Then I turned around and asked if he didn't mind if we parked a bit further away, "The exercise will be good for you!" and Robert just kept on driving. We got a few blocks away and asked "Should we skip school today?" Calder was shaking is head vigously YES and Magnolia was horrified that she would miss school. I said "Ok, let's get some breakfast and go in late." Tee hee he! We drove about 15 miles to have breakfast and then headed out asking "Is this the way back to school?" We then drove to pick up our friends! At their house they asked "Should we go for a picnic?"
Can you dig C3PO?
I thought for sure the street signs with the word disney all over them would have tipped the kids off. Nope! Not until we pointed to a shuttle van with the famous scrolly Disney font and the words Disneyland did we get a flicker of recognition! The perfect surprise! Ya!
We had 12 whole hours of fun! Can we do it again!?!?!?
