Our goal was to make it as cheap as possible. We took pre-baked casseroles, cereal, etc. We stayed at the campus hotel--which is only for PCC parents, Abeka conferences, etc....not for the general public. The suite had a mini fridge and microwave, sofa table, 2 baths and they provide as many foam-fold-up pallets as needed for kids....all fo $79.
I will post beach day pictures later. It was our 1st trip with all 6 little kids. It was rough, some of them are so lost when out of their normal environment, but worth the hassle, of course.
We swam 1/2 way through, them bribed them ice cream. We had to get these off the trailer, so DH can pick up the next load, which we will -again- have to remove from the trailer, so the 3rd and final pallette can be picked up. They arevery hard workers, and cheap!
