It's Christmas Eve in Japan! I should be sharing our activities for the day but since a stomach bug is making it's way through our family right now I'll post about happier things...like going to Universal Studios Osaka on Thanksgiving day!
I don't have to say that this was our kids favorite day of our vacation, but yeah, temples and shrines and old buildings get old I guess. I guess.
I have to say though, this was one of my favorite days as well and I was so pleasantly surprised by USO. All the reviews I read said it was so busy and nothing is in English and everything is expensive, and it's hard to get in the Harry Potter experience. Sooo, I was second guessing our decision to go and I didn't bother to buy the fast passes that would have guaranteed entrance to the top rides. But, everything turned out wonderfully! It was definitely expensive, Rayce may have talked us into a ridiculously expensive wand at Ollivander's Wand Shop, and Avie may have gotten a furry Hello Kitty poncho that I can't type the price or I'll have shame, but, we had a great and fun day!!
