Why yes. Just yesterday ;) Went to the mall just to get away from everyday busyness of having five kids. I only took my daughter.
Actually, we've explained to the kids that this summer we'll take long weekend trips to nearby places, and day trips, or visit local attractions. My husband just started a job last week (a GREAT job, we've been self-employed for 15+ years, and the past three years have caused us to look elsewhere), so we won't be taking our usual 2 week road trip (atleast not with him!). We are going to FL to visit family & friends, but, my hubby can't join us.
Here we have an Exploreum, local lakes to fish, beaches within 45 minute drives.
I look forward to seeing what others do!
