I was trying to figure out where to vacation this year. My choice was either Orlando, FL, where my step-son lives, or Las Vegas, NV. After the cost analysis, it makes more sense for us to stay close to home, in Southern California, rather than bearing the cost of peak season flights and car rentals. I thought if we only rented a time-share resort, we can have a nice 2 week vacation at the resort. Parent can relax. The boys can swim in the pool. Sometime, less is more!
I find in this age of digital everything and over stimulating games and tv entertainment, the best thing for the boys is still just some card or board games and spending time with each other in the “old fashion” way.
