Presque Isle is where their cousin lives. He works for the government. He actually wanted to go there.

We were going to try and throw him bachelor/stag party the night we get there but apparently there is a shortage of 'entertainers' in that neck of the woods. Something about the poles being too cold.

LOL, you have to be careful or something like this may happen.

Why am I envisioning a Planes, Trains, and Automobiles trip trying to make it home for Christmas?
You're going the wrong way!

Took the family to see Christmas Town at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, on Saturday. Wow that place was packed! Good weather brough out all the folks I think. Only got down to about 57 degrees at night. Have to say, they really did a great job this year. I remember turning to DW while we were up on the sky carts and saying "this is on par with the way Disney does things". Really well done. They even had Disney pricing... a cup of Starbucks coffee with a dash of Kahlua... $6.99 Want a Bud Light? $6.99 The kicker is the fact that one can see the brewery right through the woods! Crazy.

50 pages and about a week since I've been here. Hope all is well. We've been pre-occupied with last minute preparations for our Ukranian visitor and trying to learn Russian (Rosetta Stone is amazing). We pick her up at Dulles Sunday night!

You get season's passes don't you? We skipped BG this year, but I've always wanted to see Christmas Town.

Yes... we have the platinum annual passes... but they don't include this event. Sort of like Disney's Christmas Party. But I scored a really good deal on the tickets this year. Was shocked when BG had a BOGO deal for the Christmas Town tickets.

Good afternoon gentlemen.

Last night we took the kids to Disney on Ice. The kiddos had a blast. DS got a bit bored during the princess stuff. So he starts looking around trying to figure out how everything worked. DD didn't blink the whole time.
