My husband is getting to use some of his vacation that he had previously been told he couldn't. So next week, we want to pack the kids in the van, and head out. The question is.."Where?" Any ideas? We live in Dallas, Texas, so wherever we go needs to be within a 2 days drive. We can leave Monday night or Tuesday morning, but we have to be back Sunday. Our oldest difficult children family birthday party is then and I can't cancel or reschedule. Any ideas? Texas has been rained out for the past month and there is no relief in sight. I need someplace a tad bit dryer that has some cheap fun things to do for kids. I have 6 kids from age 3 to age 12, so it has to be stuff they would all enjoy. I'd love to take them to the mountains someplace, but I don't think camping there is a good idea. I don't believe camping is in my DHs blood or on any of my difficult children wishlists. Any suggestions?
