It was SO hard keeping the secret. The boys knew only that we were doing something special afterschool on Thursday. Even David knew nothing about it. It was very hard, but I really wanted to try and surprise him too. It's so contrary to my nature! So I packed everyone's bags secretly, and loaded the car while David and Josiah were at school. When we went to pick them up after school, I just kept on driving! About every 15 minutes, the boys would ask for another clue, until finally they guessed it about 5 minutes from the resort. It was SO fun to see their reactions! They were thrilled!
This picture cracks me up - if you click on it to make it bigger, you can see that the boys are "howling" like the wolves!
Time to unload the car!
After swimming for a few hours, we came back to our rooms so I could try to put Callie down. It was WAY past her nap, but I was hopeful. So the boys were playing Disney Uno in the bathroom. As you can see, Callie's nap didn't happen, and she found her way to David's lap. After dinner, we headed back down to swim and play for a few more hours before bedtime. Everyone was EXHAUSTED that night.
