I was at a baby shower on Saturday and as I was talking to a friend she told me about her recent vacation to Lego Land. I told her how I have been wanting to take the kids there, but I needed to figure out a way to save up some money for it. She told me she had a vacation fund and she secretly put money there until she had enough. So I started to think of a way we could save money for a vacation. Then, when I was at home, my eyes fell upon our giant money jar. It's one of those big, huge Sparklets water bottles. There is some money in there already so I thought that would be the perfect place to save our pennies. I made a sign for the jar so we all know the money in there will go towards our Lego Land trip next year. I think it will be fun to put change in there and see how much we get in a year. Colin is way excited. He keeps telling people about our money jar and that we're saving up for a trip to Lego Land. We might not save up enough to cover the whole trip but I am sure that money will go a long way in helping us have a fun vacation next year. It's always nice to have something to look forward to, something to plan and work on. It just makes life a little more fun.
