    My Trip Report

    And Los Alimitos, maybe.

    Time fire up the station wagon er.... Southwest Jet because Wanker is is heading west, with family in tow.

    Landing in PHX then a trek up to Anaheim on Sunday for a two day visit with the mouse. I will be in full Blackhawks Stanley Cup gear to shove it into the 3 Ducks fans I may run into..... :evillaugh

    Then down the coast for a half a week at the beach. With a trip to beautiful Del Mar Racetrack. Hopefully I can bankroll build here. :thumbsup: I went to opening day last year a blast, except for my son forgetting to pull down in underpants and pissing himself.... hey who hasn't? Year before my wife got seats way too far away, this year we got the trackside tables.

    Back to Phoenix for 4 nights to spend time with my wife's miserable aunt then to the promised land for 4 nights sans kid, who will be staying with my wife's wonderful aunt. (nice lady but she always picks fights and wants to argue) more to come there.

    This will be semi-live or may fall together totally. I am not planning on missing my vacation with my family blogging with you degens. :nono: :evillaugh

    Expect plenty of pictures of horses and mice, and maybe Princess Jasmine if you are lucky. :licklips:

    I will start another full live report from Vegas once that trip gets underway. :drunk: :beer:

    While course I am looking forward to Vegas, I do not want it to get here too soon as spending time away from the stresses of home life with my family is always great.

    The only minor tragedy is I cannot find my VMB wristband.

    Did you get in the lottery for the trackside table or get one another way? We tried the lottery this year and were not selected. Between that and comicon, 0-2....

    Have fun, and drive safe.

    So Disney on Sun./Mon.? No California Adventure? or you going to try to squeeze some of that in? Forecast looked like ours a few days out...84ish Hopefully it doesn't get revised to what we actually dealt with...98ish.

    Yeah, but this year they are running a special "World of Color" performance for their 60th anniversary. So if you or your wife would want to see that (easily blows the Bellagio fountains away). You'll need to get a fastpass for world of color early (then possibly wait in line for soarin' before lines get crazy bad) and then return in the evening.

    If you plan to come back to Disneyland in the future, then you could skip it. It will be there when you get back. They spent $75M on it. Not sure how much your son would enjoy it anyway. It's 28 minutes long too.

    If you don't go to world of color, a couple hrs of CA is likely enough. He's too young for a decent portion of that.

    Wanker...coming to Cali in July wearing a big hockey jersey?
    Better change that plan to a T-shirt unless you plan to ROAST (or you're sickly skinny)

    Haha I do not get the packer special but was nice with no carseat and kid in the middle seat. Lots of room.

    Green among the brown is cool looking.

    Aunt took us to a chicago style pizza joint in scottsdale. We went with the thin crust to not be let down. It is nuts how this is a mini Chicago down here.

    Yes, one of the major highlights of Calfornia Adventure for ride pussies like myself. Sorry I didn't write up a 2013 Vegas/Disney combo report here. 90% of the highlights were Disney anyway. Dammit.
