About 5 years ago, Clinton's Jr. High band did a trip to Disneyland, so we were able to tag along and take The Bear for a few days. He was REALLY young and can't remember much of it. I have been wanting to take him again for awhile now, as he is at such a fun age and more "self sufficient". But really, we just can't afford a family vacation. Alas and Alack.
Well, I've been making plans for his Baptism, and found out yesterday that some of my family will be going to Disneyland the week of and will try to come here on their way back to be here for the big day. They asked if we could possibly meet them in California for a couple of days of Disney fun since it's only about a 5 1/2 hour drive! There is no way that we can all afford to go, but MAYBE we can wrangle a way for The Bear and I. (Don't feel sorry for Clinton...he just got back from his Holiday Bowl trip and don't forget...he's going to Europe this summer. Feel a LITTLE sorry for Dave though!) We will be the "Vacation Crashers"!
I don't want to say anything to The Bear yet. We've got to figure out the money situation first and I wouldn't want him to be disappointed if something happens. But I feel hopeful! Clinton and I went to Disneyland when he was 8 and we had such a great time! I think The Bear will LOVE it!
