Spring Break Day Trips!

This year for Spring Break I decided to plan some day trips that my son would enjoy.  I wanted to do things that we don't often do and within a budget.  At first I had wanted to stay over night at a couple different places but when I saw the pricing I was just not going to spend that kind of money and not get any sun, sand or beach. So the longest driving trip was about an hour away and I didn't think that was too bad. 

We ended up going to Turtle Back Zoo, Sahara Sam Oasis, LegoLand Discovery Center, movies and Chucky E Cheese ( not my choice) lol. I purchase tickets to most of these places a head of time online and I also searched for coupons as well. I saved about $20 at Sahara Sam Oasis, $9 at Legoland and I even saved about $3.00 on movie tickets using the rewards card. Every little bit counts.

Each day we surprised Jaycob with a new activity and once the day was done he would tell us how each day was the best day ever. We were so happy to just see him smile and be happy. The fact that we could do it as a family is what makes it so memorable to me. Honestly you don't need a lot of money to plan a Spring Break getaway. A lot of these places let you book in advance to guarantee entrance so with some planning, a budget and coupons you can definitely pull off a few days of fun with the family. Here are a few of my favorite moments from our day trips.
