The Flights Have Been Booked!

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
June 13, 2016 9:46am CST
Finally I was able to request my 2 weeks vacation and I was able to book the flights this morning! After spending over 3,500 USD$ on Flight tickets I dont feel too bad. I havent been to the States with my kids yet so this trip will be worth it! We are spending 2 weeks, and have lots of plans like Splish Splash, Six Flags, and Hershey Park as well. Its a well deserved vacation so im not stressing the cost of my vacation and I plan on making the best of it!

Are you going to New York? That's the only place I have heard of Splish splash being is Long Island, NY. It sounds like your all going to have a blast and I hope you do!

@BACONSTRIPSXXX I do not think they will be scared unless you show them a lot of videos about air disasters. They are likely to feel excited, and possibly start to feel scared only when their ears are blocked during take-off.

How nice it is! But usually I will book the flight tickets several months earlier since it will be much more expensive to book it before your departure, especially for summer holiday. I hope you will enjoy your trip in USA
