We are planning a trip. And not a moment too soon. We've all been pent up a bit lately. Being used to hitting the road and going somewhere each day, it's been a huge adjustment for us to stay at the camper day after day. Originally when the transmission went out on my vehicle and we left it in Ohio- we'd planned to get a rental car every now and then. Well once we realized how much money we were saving with me not having a vehicle here...just on gas...saving money won out over renting a car. Until now.
Now we are at the point when we desperately want to escape. So we are planning a short, long weekend trip. We haven't decided yet if we'll take the camper or if we'll rent a car and stay in hotels. We've just started to plan.
I am trying to plan a trip that appeals to everyone. So far we are planning a trip to the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas followed by a day or two in San Antonio to take in the Alamo, Riverwalk district and the Texas Ranger Museum. We'll finish up by stopping in New Orleans to see the D-Day Museum. Somewhere along the way from San Antonio to New Orleans we need to add in a stop along the Gulf Coast.
I think this sounds wonderful, but my husband thought the fun was missing. So, we've added Six Flags to the mix. This is where the sweet quote comes in. We asked our children what they thought of adding Six Flags. My oldest blew me away when he sincerely answered..."I don't really care what we do...I just enjoy spending time with my family." How sweet is that? What a great kid. Of course then we had to tease him and tell him he was just looking for brownie points!
But now, I'd like to enlist the help of my readers. Does anyone have any pointers, places to eat in San Antonio? Campgrounds that you'd stay at again? Any money saving tips? How about New Orleans? Any family friendly attractions that you think we shouldn't miss? How about stopping along the coast? Any suggestions? It's always so great to gain wisdom from those who have gone before...
