We are currently on a trip that we have planned since before I was even pregnant with my now three month old. For at least 18 months I have been planning to take my oldest daughter to “Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party” at Disney World in Florida. I thought that at almost six years old, she would be the perfect age since she is still a tiny bit into the “magic” that comes with fairy tales and all things Disney, but old enough to ride all the rides, remember the trip, and really get into the whole not-so-scary Halloween experience.
Of course in the last 18 months we had another family member join the crew, so there will be a party of four making the journey. Fingers crossed I still describe the trip as “magical” and not “maniacal” when all is said and done!
We have made hotel reservations, dining reservations, FastPass reservations, car reservations, flight reservations, and planned, and planned, and packed, and prepped all for a brief weekend trip. If you sit back and think about it, it can be shocking how much work goes into taking a vacation!
One thing I didn’t get to do ahead of time this time around was write and schedule posts for while I am away. Normally when that happens I just set aside a couple hours each day to work from the hotel room while my daughter naps or before we get going in the morning. Working for yourself in an online world has advantages like that since you can work anytime from anywhere. I’m sure many of you have similar set-ups even if you do something other than blogging for a living.
However, not this time. Sometimes, especially with young kids who take all your extra time and energy anyway, you need to know when to draw the line and log off so that you can tune in to the experience that you put so much effort into creating.
So, while I won’t be blogging this weekend I will be sharing some of our (hopefully) magical experience on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Please follow along and see if our weekend traveling with a baby and an almost-six-year-old and is full of Disney themed tricks or treats. Enjoy your fabulous fall weekend and see ya next week.
