I could shout it from the roof tops and dance all over! hahahaha

While we really don't have the money for vacation, we sat down and talked about it. We really need some time away from it all - stressful year. We think this is exactly what we need to do in order to RECHARGE! We are pretty sure we will be back to MB May 31-June7! I will post in the "when will you be here" section when it's officially booked! We are currently trying to find a resonably priced room for the 4 of us (Nolan will be newly 3 and Morgan will be 10 months). Trying to book the room as soon as possible so we get a better one for the price before they are all taken.

I just had to share my excitement!!!

:wav:

Congratulations. The MB trip for us is pretty much a non-negotiable. I work an evening job from now until the trip to cover the vacation expenses. I don't know what I would do without a summer vacation. I'm happy for you guys.

Ash, I have said it before, you can save a lot of money by staying 2nd row and back.

Actually you can save money ocean front also be dealing with the owner and forgoing the resort/property management.

You can get a lot more for your money with just take a short walk to the sand.

Or rent a golf cart and have it to use all week, the savings will pay for it and still leave you with more spending money.

Many more folks could come here and recharge if they only investigated this option.

Save even more by eliminating the real estate agent and going direct to the owner.

Then as I have mentioned previously, if you know some of the restaurants, attractions, etc., you wish to do, Google the business, town and discount to find more ways to save.

Thanks all! We are so excited!

I am pretty certain we will most likely book from VRBO or HomeAway like the past 2 years. We did have some major issues with who we booked with last year - one day I'll post about that, when I feel I can relive the horror... - but overall we really like the experience of seeing the pictures ofthe EXACT unit you are renting, not dealing with the resort directly and in general a more home-y feel to the rooms. We have also seen way better prices vs. going through the condos.

I don't think we will stay across the street etc (too hard with all the stuff we have and with two very young ones, one not walking) BUT we did make the decision that we may not have the best view, or best amenities, but having that and going to the beach is better than not going at all!! :mrgreen:

We really want to stay at a place like Captain's Quarters for example due to the fun water amenities, but we are finding it's just probably not going to be wihtin our budget.

I am also very excited to return in the warmer months and not be pregnent :nanner: While I was happy to be there last year, it was my least favorite trip due to being pregnant, the weather was cold/rainy almost 24/7 (we went in Spring due to my due date) and because of the booking experience we had.
