    So I have decided that instead of going alone on my trip in May (May 20th-25th) I am going to surprise my daughter. Little does she know or anyone else but my mother what is going to go on. The plan is to this.

    Secretly pack her some things (dont need that much its just for a few days), have her go with me to the airport and as we are saying our goodbyes (she will be all teary eyed) I will ask her if she is ready to get on the plane (I can get a flight from here leaving at 530pm and arriving at MCO at 1230am.)

    Im almost afraid I am going to give her a heart attack...

    Now the plan from there is (Im al just going to get us both AP's since we will be back in Dec) to TRY and have breakfast at CRT or the one in Norway the next morning...cause you know neither of us will get any sleep...

    So thats the plan.

    Have any of you ever surprised your kids at the airport? If so, how'd it go?

    I've surprised family members before. It was wonderful! Lots of laughter, jumping up and down, and sometimes tears! :yes:

    You'll be so happy you've done it. It's a great way to show a teen that there is still magic in the world, eh? :D :D

    PA that is an awesome thing to do. Our first trip with kids in 03 was a surprise. We tried to keep it a secret but My Father let the cat out the bag. Make sure that she doesn't see you packing her things away. Where is your DS going to be.
    Your a lovely Mommy.

    So I changed my mind...

    Yes I am still taking her...

    Since I have to take her out of school half day and she wont be back to school because that week is the last week of school and I have been watching the darn Disney commercials with the balloons. Soooooo...

    Ive decided and found mickey mouse head shaped balloons. Im going to ask her teacher if I can let 2 float into the classroom with her name on it...hmm hows that sound?

    I could never keep my mouth shut, I would be way too excited. That may be the most awesome idea I've ever heard.
