Summer Trip 2011 {Cancelled}

Joe and I looked at each other and one of us said, "It sucks being adults!"...that's how we feel about our newest revelation. The annual trip to Illinois has been cancelled due to the fabulous insane, ridiculous, outrageous, absurd price of gas. The route is 1,894 miles round the math...I'll wait...yeah, it's gonna hurt the bank account a little too much to try and do it. We would be subject to staying at home the remainder of the summer and pinching pennies. While we pinch pennies anyway, it's just too much. I needed a good laugh at the whole situation, so I found these:

I'm super bummed about not going, because we have such a GOOD time with the kids in the car {no, really...we do!}, and we LOVE spending time with our Illinois family. However, we will press on and find some great things to do around here. We are going to spend a couple of days in Galveston, seeing as how we can get there and back on one tank of gas! The furthest we might go is San Antonio and let the kids do the Sea World thing...If you have some fun suggestions for around here, let me know! For now, I'm going to go count the remaining school days left until can not come soon enough!!

That's a bummer:( Last summer we drove to South Padre and had a great time on the beach. Much nicer than Galveston, but you will have to buy at least two tanks of gas.
