That's exactly what happened. We all, even Billy, expected each ticket to be around 100 to 150. But it turned out that they were closer to 200-250. With hotel prices and rental car, even with Priceline's help, we just couldn't afford it. As fun as it would have been to go to Hawaii right before school started, it just wasn't practical to come home and not be able to pay bills.
So, we came to Queen Creek and plan on going to Sunsplash with Brian and Marie today. 'Cause that swim suit Taryn gave me just looks way too good on me!! :) Yesterday we saw Inception with them and Brendan (Brian's brother). I recommend it. And tomorrow Cindy and I are going to Thrift Stores... yep that's right. I'm excited!
So I still get to have fun in the sun as a birthday gift, just a less expensive one. And I don't have to worry about Hayden for 3 days. I'm not too bummed about not going. There will be another chance.
