Most Awesome Vacation Perks -#1 Food

We are home from our first  vacation with 5 kids, on an airplane, in 2 hotel rooms, for an awesome week of fun, sun, surf, and great food. This was our favorite restaurant. It's called Barra Barra in Old Town San Diego.

Not only is the food very good, kids under 10 eat FREE EVERY DAY with the purchase of an adult meal! (One kid meal per one adult meal purchased). This little surprise was a huge adrenaline rush for me. It was so nice not to have to eat fast food every day to save our budget. Adult meals were reasonably priced $10-15, and the portions are large. Finally having a large family paid off in the financial world!

D. fell 'in love' with the refried black bean dip--literally polishing off 3 bowls by herself. So now we've been spoiled with free food, and wouldn't you know there's a website to help you figure out what kids meals are free, and when. Kids Meal Deals offers lists of local kids meals--so if you are going on vacation simply enter your vacation zip code and the list of restaurants offering free meals for kids will pop up. If you're at home, you can still take advantage of this website by entering your home zip code. The list does come with one disclaimer: call the restaurant to make sure the deals are still active.

Either way, this is a great way to save money at home or on the go. We loved our vacation and as soon as I finish the wash, I will post some pics and tips on family vacations on the cheap, including special tips for those of us with large families.
