Sing this to the Go-Go’s song “Vacation.” This morning, my friend e-mailed me about the new term “stacation” (stay at home vacation) and I thought I’d share it with you. Because, let’s face it, unless your money tree is blooming on steroids, you can’t afford to go too far from home this Summer. You know by now how much I love to explore with the rugmonsters and we already started our list for day trips. Still deciding on what event to attend on Monday to pay tribute to our fallen men and women in uniform – may be the WWII/DDAY Museum (which will be open).

***Our current list for stuff to do: NOMA, aquarium, zoo, Children’s Museum, golf (driving range), shooting (with dad), water parks (maybe once), trips to the libraries in the greater New Orleans area, Baton Rouge trips (USS KIDD), City Park, ride streetcars, pick blueberries again at “Blueberry Ridge” in Picayune, MS, bowling, graveyard trips, visit a plantation, Avery Island, Lafitte, different swamp tours, listen to live music at different places, and playgrounds when it isn’t too hot. It is a start and we will have to have some “down” days too! Your suggestions are welcome for other day trips!

***I am also still collecting restaurant names that have “kids eat free stuff” (working on my master list).

***Here are a few places to find out what is going on: New Orleans Online , La Fete News (sign up for the newsletter – free), La Fete Northshore, & entertainment.
