i have never taken my daughter on a vacation

my daughter is 9 years old and I have never taken her on a vacation and I feel kind of bad about it so I was thinking about taking her on a vacation to new Orleans, Lousianna to see the most haunted house in the united states of America what do you guys think

    I get the guilt part... My kids go to see my family and go with their dad to see his.. but I haven't taken them on a "real" vacay... My son is 9... and would NOT be into haunted houses.. I mean he thinks he would.. but then after and during would be scared poopless...
    I think that parents can make small special trips as great as a big one...

    BUT, I'm dying to know how the haunted house is :)

      We've never taken our kids on a vacation. We've been to the zoo and stuff where we go out for the day but never away from home. We were thinking about taking them to the zoo(which is a hour away) and making it a mini vacation and getting a hotel for the night.

        I agree with what the others said about day trips and making memories.

        Our family hasn't been on a real vacation since 2009. Nearly five years, but we do try to make some day trips because we all miss it. We try to remind ourselves it's a sacrifice we are making because we have animals now and wanted to live on a farm.
