Remember how I was whining about the possibility that we may not be going to Hawaii in March?
Well let me explain.
My sister-in-law and her family (she has two daughters ages 3 & 5) have been going to Hawaii pretty much every single year for the last several years. She always invites us to go, but it's just never worked out. (i.e pregnancy, then baby...etc)
But this year, we were seriously considering going because we'd be staying with them (free lodging), and we *thought* we had free airline tickets (alaska airline mileage program). And because we were pretty much only going to have to pay for food, it was a no brainer! So when we found out that our mileage program didn't include Hawaii, cause it's not the continental US, we were crushed. Seriously.
Well my amazing sister-in-law read my blog post and she e-mailed me reminding me that they were also going to be going to Orlando in May, and we should take a vacation with them there, instead of Hawaii. Because, DUH, Florida is in the continental US. Back to the FREE flights!
So 24 hours after receiving that e-mail... we booked our tickets to Orlando for this May! And if you know me, you know how ECSTATIC that makes me. I LOVE Disney World. I even posted about it way back in June, and how I was dying to go.
We are not taking Bennett with us, though. Some people think it's weird that we're going to Disney World and not taking at One year old. I guess I can see where there coming from, but the whole point of the vacation was to get away, just the two of us, baby-free. And Bennett will be too young to really enjoy it and go on any of the rides. We'll go again with him when he's 4ish.
I will miss Bennett like crazy but I know he will be in the very capable hands of his Yia-Yia and his Auntie Lissa.
So...do I have the best in-law's or what?? It will be super fun to watch my nieces run around Disney World. I am so thankful for the generosity of Nichole & Chad. You guys ROCK!
I am over the moon excited! Can you tell?? :)
Booya! May can't come fast enough!
