We cancelled our 2-week Vegas Vacation that we had scheduled for this summer. We had everything planned out, including the reservation at our Timeshare. My older brother and his family live there, so the entire family (our parents, all siblings, and all grandchildren) were going to be going, but DH and I decided that it'd be in our best interest, financially, to skip vacation this year. We want to be able to continue to save the money that we have, and build interest on it...not spend it on a vacation that's going to cost in excess of $3500+. Bills have always been paid on time, kids always have more than they need, but we've never had a comfortable cushion of savings until recently. We told the kids this past Friday what we've decided, and surprisingly, they're okay with it. They did admit to being upset, but they understood. We all decided that we can go to the coast for a couple of days, but nothing too expensive.
