Do you take inexpensive short trips in the summer to visit family, friends, or just take the kids to amusement parks, camping, etc. just to get away for a day or a couple of days? Love to know. Thanks.

Usually day trips (occasionally to the beach). We haven't been able to afford much the last 5 years or so with gas prices and even when we could afford it my husband is always working.
This summer we are having a baby (in 2 1/2 weeks) and moving across the country (from Chicago to Portland, OR). That will take any money we have for months. We'll be broke and without furniture once we move. The next year we will be using any extra cash to buy stuff we need (I'm talking beds and a sofa, dining room table, etc).
Right now I don't even have a car so we can't go more than a couple blocks from our house.
