No Christmas at my house this year...

Posted by   + Show Post

But it's a good thing.

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***

The Huntington Library and the Ghetty Center are great too.  And whatever you do don't go to Disneyland on Christmas Day or the day after. They pack it to the gills until it's just plain dangerous; if there was a fire or an earthquake I can't imagine how many people would be hurt or killed.

No Red Lobster, we have only had Olive Garden for about a year. We don't even have Chili's anymore (well, there is one in the airport, but who goes there for dinner) 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

 I don't know. All I know is I've had it twice, and I still dream about it constantly.

I get the manly burger

 If you want to have the most amazing burger you've ever had in your life, go to Umami Burger. There is one by Disneyland.

OMG...That sounds and looks sooo awesome. Any idea if they have less fancy burgers for the kids?? My kids aren't impressed by "fancy" food. (they don't know what they are missing)

I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.
