What are some things you do for your kids to have a magical time at DL?
Or, what did your parents do for you to have a magical time at DL?
I totally commend my parents for making many road trips to DL when I was a kid. We lived in Vegas, so would go about 3-4 times a year, but couldn't afford to stay overnight on most visits. So, here's what amazes me to this day - they'd wake us three kids up at 3:30am so we could hit the road to be at the park by 9am. One parent would sleep on the way down while the other drove. Now, we'd stay ALL DAY at the park, usually until 11pm. And then, the other parent would drive us back, while the other slept. Considering that's only about 3 hours of sleep (considering we had to stop for potty breaks, etc.) for each parent, with 14 hours at the park and 300 miles of driving each way, that's pretty damn amazing! Heck, I don't even like walking back to the car after a full day of DL, and they were older than I am now.
So, here's to the parents who make the magic happen!
