Okay guys! I did a pretty sneaky thing. And when I say I..what I really mean is my sister and I did a really sneaky thing. In June. We did the sneaky thing in June. So I completely thought I had posted this and I guess I hadn’t, so I kinda dropped the ball. My bad! Let’s just get to it!
This all starts with the fact that I was raised on Disney, because my mother was raised on Disney. It is such a family thing my dad was forced to learn to love it. (not that he didn’t want to love it!) My Grandparents decided to hold the family reunion in Disneyland this year. At first my family wasn’t going to go since we had just been the previous October and we all had expenses that made it hard to afford. BUT! My dad decided that he and my mom were going to go. Which made me all sorts of sad. It’s fine really.
Well one day I was sitting at work and I messaged my sister and maybe bullied her into buying plane tickets to surprise everyone. So for 4 weeks we had to act sad and lie to our ENTIRE family! Which is not an easy task my friends. I almost let it slip way too many times to count. Jessica also had the same issue. It was a party for sure!
Well the day came for my parents to leave and that is when we had to kick into fast gear! Because we couldn’t pack until they were gone we had a lot to do in the 4 hours we were home after they left. We had one of our freaking awesome friends drive us to Cincinnati and we stayed the night in the SKETCHIEST hotel that had the most uncomfortable beds. But that doesn’t matter. We survived.
The flight to California was probably the most stressful thing I had ever experienced. We were both so afraid that our parents knew. Or that we were going to blow the secret if we couldn’t find them. Such a party. Fun fact: My phone wouldn’t reset the time so I was freaking out but Jessica was calm because she knew what the actual time was. Man, when I tell you that things weren’t going smooth that is the truth. People who were supposed to know where our parents were didn’t have a clue. We couldn’t get to our shirts for a hot second.
But it all worked out. We first got to surprise my aunt before my parents. It was delightful to hear someone yell “ALEX! JESSICA! ALEX!” Man, so good! We found out our parents were going on Splash Mountain so we went to wait for them to get off. I’ll post the picture below, it is humorous. My mom saw us and started crying and our dad was just shocked. But have you ever had your mom cry and not know if she was happy or sad? Me too dude. Me too. Cause I had no idea if she was mad or happy. Spoiler: she was happy. It was wonderful. They had no idea. We are super sneaky.
It was such an amazing and exhausting trip. I think we nailed the Disney surprise.
I hope you are having the best day/night ever!
And just remember how amazing you are.
