We surprised Cassidy with a trip to WDW for her 10th birthday. Above is the video that my great friend, Lou Mongello made for her. After all, Lou is her #1 man!

Below is the slideshow I put together with photos from the weekend and also her reaction to finding out where she was going.

A little background info...I had planned to join Lou and friends in WDW for the 24 hour show. Well, since the show was going to be a few days before her birthday I thought it would be great to surprise her with a trip. I've always wanted to do that. Let me tell you, never again!! I was so stressed out since I couldn't talk to her about it plus I had to pack all her things without her missing anything. And getting the school in on the surprise too was work. I had to wait for her to get on the bus before running in to pick up her homework. I couldn't have it sent home with her that day. But all the stress was totally worth it!!! SHE CRIED!!

Enjoy the show and I'll blog later about highlights of the trip.

How cool! My parents surprised me with a trip to WDW on my 10th Birthday too.

They said we were just going to Chicago for the weekend. It wasn't until we boarded the plane to go "home" that I was let in on the secret. I remember the pilot announcing our destination, Orlando, over the intercom just before take-off. I was so excited I didn't hear him wish me happy birthday after that. (nothing like having Lou announce it, but still).

Awesome surprise! Well done.
