For the last 10-plus years, DW and I have spent the weekend after Thanksgiving at Disneyland. Sometimes with family, sometimes just the two (now three) of us.
This year was different, though. My parents booked a cruise with some friends for the week, so they’d be gone on Thanksgiving. DW’s Grandma cooks Thanksgiving the Sunday before for DW’s family, so the in-laws are taken care of.
“Cool. No place to go on Thanksgiving. Let’s go to Disneyland!!”
If only it were that easy. MIL got wind of our plan, and what was going to be just the 3 of us (Me, DW, DS5), turned into a trip for 7. Me, DW, DS5, MIL, SIL, BIL & Nephew6. Well, the only good that could come of it is that MIL was able to use her military ID (Late-FIL retired from the Army) to get us 3-day hoppers for $99 from the local Navy base. Score!
I’ve been making name tag graphics for everyone on another message board that shall remain nameless, so I knew I had to make something extra-special just for us, so I made Happy Thanksgiving name tags.
But since we were gonna spend 3 days in the parks, I couldn’t stop there and decided we should have shirts for all 3 days. Well, the ladies put their feet down. They would wear the Thanksgiving shirts, but for the other 2 days it would just be the boys (and the men). They were sorry (and very jealous) later.
