Blog: Balancing Thrifty And Fun

Summer Vacation

Thursday, July 09, 2009

Well, it is that time of the year, we are heading out bright and early tomorrow morning. My boys both would like to go to Disneyland, but we are visiting family this year.  We are driving to Chewelah in Eastern Washington for their local Chataqua festival.  My aunt Sally (also a ThriftyFunner) always invites the whole extended family and everyone has a great time.  It reminds me of my own childhood because we would visit as often as we could. I can't wait for my boys to see everyone!

After that, we are driving over to visit Grandma Nancy in Leavenworth. Leavenworth is a charming Bavarian  town high in the mountains.  Their property has a little creek and lots of space for boys (and dogs) to run.  Although it won't be as "exciting" as Disneyland might be, I hope that they will have a great time and make some of their own childhood memories.

About Me:

I'm a 39 year old . . . what? Mother, college graduate, housewife with a full time job, mostly unpublished writer, the list just goes on. I'm spiritual, but not religious; lazily liberal; frugal but with a love of pretty, shiny things. My mother, Susan, was the founder of ThriftyFun and scrimped all her life to have enough for her kids. I try to do her proud but sometimes stumble along the way.
