Carousel ride - $3.50
Who says shopping has to mean spending?
Trying on hats, taking pictures, and laughing our heads off - $0
Playing with toys in the toy store - $0
One bag of taffy $5
Feeding the seals - $5 for 5 buckets of fish guts and chunks
Our one meal out - $54 including gratuity (Found out it's so much cheaper when everyone had a little snack about an hour before. We all drank waters and then ordered the food we wanted without restriction. But because we weren't all ravenous we didn't order giant amounts.) Normally a meal at a nice restaurant for six of us is around $80.
Swimming in the hotel pool at least twice a day - $0
And of course Nickelodeon off and on through out the day.
A few funny comments...
"Mom, I feel bad for people with cable because they just play the same thing over and over."
"Mom, what's a twinkie?" (I'm obviously a crappy parent if my 5 year old has no idea what a twinkie is. Note to self...add twinkies to grocery list purely for educational purposes.)
