Mom: What is this blog post about?
Logan: This blog post is about me going on a trip with my parents.
Mom: What’s the reason for this trip?
Logan: I’m going on this trip, because I’m going to turn 10 next year, and my parents want to go on a trip with just me.
Mom: Where are you going?
Logan: We are going to downtown Milwaukee.
Mom: How did you choose Milwaukee?
Logan: Me and my mom looked at top 10 hotels, and we saw a good one in Milwaukee.
Mom: But why did you choose Milwaukee?
Logan: Because we don’t really go there a lot, and Milwaukee is close to Illinois.
Mom: Where else did you consider going?
Logan: Madison, Chicago, or California.
Mom: Why didn’t you choose California?
Logan: Because flying would be too expensive.
Mom: Tell me about the hotel.
Logan: The hotel’s name is Drury Plaza, and it has a pool, a bar, free breakfast, and free food and drinks from 5:30-7.
Mom: Did you look into AirBnb or VRBO?
Logan: No, because that might cost a lot of money.
Mom: Even if you can make your own meals? What makes you want to stay in the hotel so much?
Logan: Yes. And I want to go to a hotel, because a hotel has a pool. I also like hotels because they are close to restaurants.
Mom: That’s a good segue into food. What’s your plan for budgeting for food?
Logan: If we go to restaurants, $50 for every meal.
Mom: How many meals do you plan on eating out?
Logan: Four. So, $200 for lunch and dinner, because breakfast is free.
Mom: What do you want to do while you’re in Milwaukee?
Logan: Go in the pool at the hotel, watch movies, and go to beaches.
Mom: There are a lot of beaches. How do you know which one to pick?
Logan: Me and my mom researched beaches. My first pick would be McKinley Beach.
Mom: Why that one?
Logan: Because McKinley Beach is not too crowded, and there’s a park there.
Mom: What’s your budget for this trip?
Logan: $1000. I think that’s good for a budget.
Mom: Was there anything that you wanted to do that cost too much money?
Logan: Hot air balloons. But they costed $150 per person.
Mom: Would you consider doing just one night in a hotel to ride in a hot air balloon?
Logan: Uh, no, because the hotel is very fun, and we might do hot air balloons later in life.
Mom: What are you most excited about?
Logan: The pool, getting to watch movies, yummy food, and being just with my parents.
