One of the most exciting things about summer is vacation! Planning the ultimate family trip takes a lot of time, consideration and, of course, a budget. There are so many things to think about: where to go, how to get there, where to stay, how long to be gone, etc. And keeping everything you want to do within a reasonable budget can be tricky. But it can be done, and in the end it is all worth it.
This year we are forgoing the traditional summer vacation in favor of a fall vacation. (Another thing that factors in — timing!) We will be going on our first Disney Cruise, and I am giddy with excitement! While my husband and I love to cruise, this will be the first time we take the kids on a cruise. (Now accepting tips from veteran Disney cruisers!)
Even though our big trip will be this fall, I still have a few surprises up my sleeve for mini staycations here in town. After all this is my big girl’s last summer before Kindergarten, and I wanna make it special.
Whether you have a big trip planned or will have a quite summer at home, let’s talk about vaccay!
