The day before, we wanted to visit the aquarium where the dolphin Winter lives, from the movie Dolphin Tales. When we looked up online to see how much it would cost, we were astounded. It would have been close to a hundred dollars! And, honestly, there didn't seem to be all that much to do except look at the dolphin. I didn't take a whole lot of time checking it out because I knew it wasn't going to happen.
Then about a month ago (maybe longer), I wanted to take the kids to see the Titanic Exhibit at a local museum. Again, I was flabbergasted at the cost for me and the kids. I have come to the conclusion, that a lot of these places price the average families right out of the possibility of enjoying them. Which is a shame.
At the mall, we settled for Starbucks for everyone. And sat watching all the others skate. It wasn't the perfect plan. But, it was something we could do together. And that usually is my goal . . .
