Back from an awesome vacation!!

We got home yesterday from our camping vacation. I know what you are thinking! How can they afford to vacation when they aren't working? While it's true my husband and I aren't working, we went on vacation and spent only $75.00 OOP and gas money was spent from my husband's plasma donation card. We went to Wisconsin Dells. If you have never been there, you should try to go. It's beautiful and there is something for everyone. The rock fomations are fantastic! The natural beauty is awesome. And of course there are the water parks, the shows, the museums, etc. Admission is very expensive, but again, we brought with us $75.00 cash and came home with $6.00 left. We ate packed lunches, no eating in the resturants. We bought only a few souvenirs ( a pencil for each of the kids and a few smushed pennise for their collection), mostly I took over 500 photos and my daughter and I are working on that scrap book. I have the brouchures and flyers which I will use for parts of the scrap book. We stayed at my parents land, so no nightly fees. It was great! WE had a super time and will remember it for a long time!!

So, Now I am a home for a few days, then I head off for Washington DC!

We go to the Dells all the time and love it! We stay at my mom's house near the Dells so we save money and have fun too! What will you be doing in D.C.?

Hi Tammy,
I am going to study at Gallaudet University for one week. ( I am there now!) I am studying to improve my skills in my job.

Thanks for asking and I can't agree more. Wisconsin Dells is a great place and you can do it cheaply with coupons and planning!
