Driving to San Diego or so I Thought

We left around noon today to head to my parents. The girls and I were really excited and couldn't wait to see my family. I called them several times to give a heads up on our status. When we got to Bakersfield we visited with Grandma Kyle and headed out of town. I was busy talking with Noah when I noticed we were passing Anaheim. I thought it was strange to be going this way to San Diego we usually go a different way. Noah assured me the traffic was much better on this freeway. I pointed out Disneyland to the girls and we waved goodbye. We talked about going to Disneyland on Noah's Birthday(Dec. 29th).
Noah and I needed a pit stop and he passed the gas station. I said firmly "Where are you going? This is by the hotel we stayed at in the spring when we went to Disneyland. He said "Yes, I know this is a better place to stop at." I thought that was silly for him to drive all over just to get out at a hotel. We pulled into a spot and he said "I will be right back." When he came back he was wheeling out a luggage rack. I was a little irritated and said "What are you doing?" He replied "I'm tired, I don't want to drive any more, and I want to stay here tonight." At this point the girls started to cry and I was shocked not to be driving all the way to San Diego when were less than 2 hours away. I didn't argue with him, but I knew something was up. When we got up to the hotel he told the girls to get ready for bed, because we were going to be getting up early. No sleeping in for the Birthday girl either. I was told that we were going to Disneyland tomorrow on my Birthday! I love Disneyland! I was really excited and asked him how he did this. Apparently he had been planning it for months. I can't wait until tomorrow
