Get real man, take the kids camping, do some fishing, wear them out and make them start a fire, kill some critters then eat them. Once they are asleep take wify deep into the woods for a zesty natural session. No big $$, you set the agenda and you get to have fun in the nature. Hell if you want the kids to remember this just howl like an animal as you hump your mate then come back to the camp in a sneaky way to watch them chew the last bit of their nails. No $$ for thrill rides needed and the memories will be priceless
I think TV, the Internet and Video Games pretty much killed that level of recreation for most of the ADD addled kids of today. It is nice in theory, and how I grew up but that was then. Hell, most ADULTS can't even take that level of quiet and calm. If they don't have buzz going on, they go crazy.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Don't forget. Drew takes his kids to a nice national park and gets them involved in alien abductions.

No casino means you won't lose any money.
this is what I'm leaning towards.....not to mention, way less walking...lol

I would love to take a trip to a cabin in the woods...one big problem with that...one of the key family members is terrified of snakes and if one rolled up on us, this person would definitely have a heart attack....trip ruined....lol

me, I'm a country boy, I would love it. take my guns and fishing rods...dinner will be served.

Yeah man I almost forgot about that episode Well tonight is Telescope Night with my kids and the 10" lens is coming out. I can't wait to take pictures because I just built a camera adapter for this thing.
By the way that was not the first time I saw UFOs but it was the first time I was able to take a picture of them.
