I amd so upset but I know its what I have to do. I am cancelling my fort reservations for Christmas and using my down payment to book my surprise anniversary trip for hubby and I kid free. I am going to book a pirate room at CBR. I know hubby is a big kid at heart. He made the comment when I was showing him the rooms "forget the kids I'm staying there" I am thinking of taking the kids up to the fort before Christmas just to see the decorations. It would be a fun way to spend the day. We live 2 hrs away. Would we be able to visit? We will get to the forts someday. This yr was just really bad money wise. We have a plan for next yr that should help us out tremendously and give us better financial freedom.
