So it seems like we had fun and we did in all fairness. But here a few draw backs from the whole staycation. The house will still get messed up. And since everyone is on "vacation" no one but mom wants to clean. And the chores that usually take most of the day have to get done a lot quicker so that the afternoon was free to do fun stuff. So I was running around like crazy. Everyone in the end did pitch in but it was not a happy time. The other problem is we tried to cram too many things into one week. These are all things that we would have done just spread out. It was a bit too much in one week. Don't get me wrong it was fun but hectic.
So I'm not sure if our vacation ever gets ruined again, if I'm up for a staycation. If we do try this again, I think I would just let each of the kids pick something and leave it at that. Because if I get to chose it will be taking a nap and/or cleaning. I'm sure that will go over real well with the crew.
