Our family has been so fortunate to hold annual passes to Disney for the past 10+ years. We recently have been talking and decided to not renew our passes this year. Life has become so busy, the kids are getting older, and we just thought it was time. These annual passes were expiring on Monday of this week, so Josh and I decided we would surprise the kids and stay at a hotel for the weekend near Disney.
We sat Sweet Pea and Bubba down Thursday night to explain that we had a little surprise for them. Sweet Pea immediately chimes in, “you’re pregnant!” And then Bubba giggles and says “no, mama’s belly would be much bigger if there were a baby in there!” No, we are not pregnant, but man did our weekend getaway surprise sound like a small surprise now!
Off to the hotel we went and we had such a great weekend. We don’t get away often with just our family of four and it was so nice! Josh and I walked away from the weekend saying that we need to do these little getaways more often!
If you’re wondering what all these animal pictures are, they are from Animal Kingdom, which has always been one of our favorite Disney parks. We love rides, and we love parades, but Animal Kingdom just feels a little slower paced, a little less crowded, a little easier to enjoy!
Our one last hurrah as annual pass holders was great! We stayed up super late and enjoyed our days to the max! And we have been super tired this week from all of our fun!
