We are packing up and going on a 16 day vacation to Southern California. Disneyland, here we come!!!! My kids are 14,15 and 16...they have never left Alaska and never been on a plane...the last time I went on a plane or left state was in 1993.
We agreed...no tree, no presents...just Vacation and we are going all out. Disneyland, Universal Studios, Venice Beach, Sea World, the zoo....and all the restaurants that we don't have in Alaska...Sonic, In & Out Burger, Red Lobster.....and on and on.
35 Days...I feel as excited as my kids ***Woo Hoo***
I have heard Disneyland is amazing on Christmas day...I agree, though, it is sad they have to work.
Places will be open Christmas Day? That's really sad that places will miss out on Christmas with their own families to cater to yours :( I don't mean that the way it comes out because if they weren't open, you probably wouldn't go. But I am talking about all businesses. It makes me sad that they're open on holidays :(
well hey, u get mammoth size mosquitos and midnight sun :)
Tell me about it...as a deprived Alaska child, I had to see commercials for things that we didn't see here until I was an adult. 7-11(now gone), K-Mart(now gone), Walmart, Macy's(still don't have one), Walgreens(came about 2 years ago), Long John Silvers(have one, but never been there)...They tortured us...not to mention back then Alaska was on a tape delay, so got all of our TV shows 2 weeks after everyone in "the states" got them...we got movies months after everyone else. We are almost caught up to the real world now.
that is just mean!
We get all the commercials for national chain restaurants, but we don't get to ever try it.
the only thing that stands out is that there arent any red lobsters in Alaska....i didnt know that :P
