After tons of research and waiting for the right days to book, we could have made the entire trip for about $800 (yep, that included airfare, park tickets, hotels, etc). We discussed it thoroughly and decided even though it was a really great price for the trip, it was out of our budget for this year.
As it turns out, two weeks later, my husband's car needed nearly $900 in repairs! Good thing we didn't go off to Florida.
The idea of going away with just my little family always sounds so nice and relaxing. I've always wanted to go on a cruise. We almost went on one for our honeymoon actually. We looked into cruises at length. It would have been super romantic going to the Bahamas at the different stops. Though we opted for a relaxing resort on the water, I still check the website every once in a while...just in case there's a deal we can't pass up.
But this summer it looks like we're having a staycation. Don't be jealous...you can join us! We pulled out the little turtle pool in the backyard today and soaked up the sun and some water. I've been letting Little Olive eat ice cream for dinner, (how can I resist?), we go on walks, go to the beach, the local pools, anything relaxing.
Maybe next year, Harry Potter or a cruise. Maybe next year! :)
