We paid $168 for each of our tickets. This is the price for adults and children. While the regular Disneyland tickets have a lower rate …

We Went to Knott's Berry Farm and Got a Military Discount

We Went to Knott’s Berry Farm and Got a Military Discount Growing up in Southern California, Knott’s Berry Farm was a huge part of my childhood. I have so many fun memories of that place too. Like Disneyland, my mom would take us there during our school breaks, for birthdays, or really whenever she found a good deal. We even went there for our 4th-grade field trip to learn about the history of the area and the gold rush. When we were in California this past July we decided to plan a family trip to Knott’s Berry Farm. My mom, dad, …

Amsterdam & The Netherlands

Amsterdam

While we were overseas we were able to do a little bit of traveling. I am glad we were able to do this.  In May of 2008 I took a USO tour with some friends to visit Amsterdam & The Netherlands. It was a two-day tour but you were supposed to sleep on the bus. I think I was one of the only ones that couldn’t do that but it was still worth it, even though I never got to sleep. We were able to go to a cheese farm, a place they made wooden shoes, the Keukenhof where we got to …

I will miss a colorful fall. I …

My trip to Denver and Boulder Colorado

  A couple of weeks ago I joined my parents, brother and sister-in-law in Colorado for my cousin’s wedding. I ended up flying in about 15 mins after my parents did so I just met them at the baggage claim. My mom has been dx with Guillain Barre. Because of this she is receiving treatments once a week. If she does not get these treatments, she starts to feel very weak and eventually would not be able to get up on her own, walk and it would not be good. Luckily, she was able to work it out to get …
