Two years ago we took the kids to Disneyland for the first time. R and I wanted to surprise them and said we were bringing them to the King Tut display at museum in Golden Gate Park. They had already been to the Rosecrucian Museum in Santa Clara so they were pretty excited.
R and I smiled when the older two started a conversation about Disneyland. “We hate Mickey Mouse!” they said.
That’s what they said until they saw the sign for Disneyland.
This year the oldest craved and needed more responsibility so I broke the news to him. He was going to assist in the deception of his sisters. He loved it.
It is a six hour drive to the happiest place on earth from where we live so we savored the surprise for as long as we could, even through this break at a rest stop.
