Also make sure when you book a hotel that you have stayed there or someone has because it's the worst if you arrive and it's so gross you won't stay there.

Every time our family of 4 eats at a restaurant, it's around $100. So, I take donuts and pop tarts for breakfast, lots of snacks, and we eat one big meal at a restaurant a day. I also take the pb and j incrustables to eat around lunch time. - minniemonika   79.3 #0 7-17-14 7:00AM Like  Reply
