No, the economy isn't having a large effect on our summer vacation. We are taking precautions to enjoy as much as we can with as little mulla as we can though. We bought our plane tickets for Illinois & Georgia on priceline.com, we are staying at a hotel where we can stay & fly before we leave so parking is already taken care of for a fraction of what it would have cost us had we not opted for the stay & fly deal, and we are staying with family on the second leg of our trip. My MIL is coming at the end of summer, we paid in advance for two activities taking place here - then, and we will be enjoying several other freebie's being offered the rest of the time. MIL is staying with us, we are picking her up (also bought through priceline.com) and dropping her off, and she has a car available to her here if she wants to venture out on her own (GPS equiped).
It is said that if you see a Blue bird,
you will have a good day...
