Saving for a Family Vacation

I am writing this post right now from my balcony in Mexico drinking a cerveza...fine by the time I hit schedule I should be a few beers deep.  My boy needs a few minutes out of the sun since he was rocking the butt-whiteness of a New York winter before coming down, and my daughter and The Wife are napping by the pool so I have a few minutes to kill to write a post I have been thinking about this I booked this trip.
