I owe you an explanation.

Let’s start with this.  (If you’re a subscriber, you may need to click through to see the video.)

More to come just as soon as I can string a few sentences together. So.Very.Tired. Guess that’s what happens when you’re up for 21 straight hours at the end of a 5 day trip. 😉


  1. Oh my word, that was so awesome! Wow! What an incredibly great surprise! So happy you were able to take them! I was wondering what happened to you. Tonight I made Lazy Granola and I though, “where is Amy?!” Ha! Fabulous! (You are allowed to take time off 😉

  2. Holy wow! What an awesome surprise!!

  3. Carmen E. says:

    Yay!!! How exciting! Loved the kids’ reactions! 🙂

  4. Wow, that is so exciting! The kids’ reactions were priceless. Have fun!

  5. What a gift! :~) And that was awesome….seeing the kids’ reactions! Have fun and enjoy!

  6. Stephanie says:

    Thank you for sharing this. I love that the two little ones are just as excited as the big kids even though they probably weren’t even sure why. I hope it was a fun, memorable family vacation!

  7. Michelle says:

    Oh Amy! This was AWESOME! That’s where we are surprising our girls with going too! TOO FUNNY! We leave Thursday morning! Anxious to hear more about your adventure! 🙂

  8. Kelly Hess says:

    That was awesome, thanks so much for sharing. It brought tears to my eyes!

  9. Kristie says:

    Fantastic! That was well played. The best part for me, an outsider looking in, was when number two, then number one came to give Daddy a hug too.

  10. Oh Amy, LOVED it, brought tears to my eyes, knowing the Looks on there little faces when they saw Disney…..Oh I can’t wait to hear more!!! Oh and the pics!!!

  11. What a great video! I hope you all had a wonderful trip. I can’t wait to hear more!

  12. I LOVE THIS! It brought tears to my eyes. We are saving up to do the same for our little guys – they want to see Lightning and Mater in California so badly. We hope to surprise them in much the same way. Seeing your kiddos’ excitement just makes me want to work harder at the “saving up” part so our guys can have that same excitement! Thanks for the encouragement!

  13. Thank you for sharing! I love seeing your kids all excited. My kids are grown and out of the house, so I miss the craziness. Hope you had an awesome trip and lots of memories were made.

  14. So exciting! Can’t wait to hear more about it!

  15. Patty T says:

    Hope you guys had fun! (I’m sure you did.) I love how your oldest daughter seems as excited about riding on a plane as going to Disney World. 🙂

  16. Wow! We just went last year. Our son loved all the rides he took! I love the video that you made of your kids….Too funny! Hope you had a grand time!

  17. Cynthia Ferguson says:

    Such joy!!!!!

  18. Fun! I thought you were going to announce baby #6! Disney is fun, too 😉

  19. Dawn Parrott says:

    WOW, how great for you all. That was such a fun surprise to give them and you. Hope you had the best time, which looks like you did! Can’t wait for you to share more of your adventure!

  20. that’s so fun. i wish we could give my kids something to get that excited about. we live about 20 minutes from disney (going today, actually)– and universal, and sea world, and less than 2 hours from busch gardens and tons of beaches. *sigh* we know our kids don’t know how good they have it and i wonder a lot how to show them, how to instill in them an appreciation for something that is just every day life for them. 🙁

  21. ..

  22. Diane Vandermast says:

    Absolutely loved seeing and hearing the kid’s reactions. My ears are still ringing, but I’m still smiling as I write this 🙂

  23. Tanzeem says:

    OMG Amy this is such a wonderful video…my 4 yr old is after me for a trip to Disneyland since quite sometime. The day I plan up the trip m sure m gonna steal ur idea of surprising him…!!!!

    Hope u guys hv an amazing trip….!!!

  24. Best. Video. Ever!

    I even teared up at your kids excitement! I loved the “is this a dream?”! So sweet!

    • That was just so much fun. We didn’t tell ANYONE before the trip, so it was hilarious to tell my mom and dad to go watch my video. 😉
