this happened. If you look at the date, you'll see this article just came out yesterday. I was literally in line buying Boo a pair of flipflops for the trip when I heard the news.
Also this week, in the wake of the recent local violence, the cruise lines have dropped Mazatlan indefinitely from their port of calls. We don't need to bring up the decapitations and kidnappings. Yes, I said decapitations.
Our families have traveled in Mexico no less than 709,054 times. We knew about things like this travel restriction and the recent increase in violent crime in Mexico. And we still felt comfortable driving down there in large part due to when and how we were traveling, who we were traveling with, and where we would be staying once we got there. But these recent reports just can't be ignored. I just won't take my littles.
Anyone have ANY suggestions for a cheap family vacation? I'm really looking for any advice and willing to think outside the box.
If we do one more "stay-cation" I'll just lose it. Really I will. We're pros at stay-cations. They're lovely. But we've exhausted the possibilities in our area.
We're willing to drive a 12 hour radius from Scottsdale, AZ.
Any suggestions at all are greatly appreciated.
I'm sticking with my Grapes of Wrath imagery. It works for me. And besides, I'm having a bad hair day.
And here's my family.
Aren't we a lovely bunch? Wondering where we can go and what we can do on this well earned holiday? Just standing there waiting for inspiration from y'all! What have you done on a budget? We just want the kiddos to have a little fun. Cheap fun that is.
All suggestions seriously taken into consideration.
PS-We're not taking the goat anywhere. He's gonna stay home. Besides, he doesn't drink margaritas anyway.
PPS-Papa, you ARE my Henry Fonda! You ARE my hottie! You are my hunk-a-burnin' love!
