My husband, daughter, me, and my brother and his family are going to fly out of Houston, with continental about $200 round trip. That will be an adventure in itself my borther and his wife have twin girls 3 mo old. We will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express Deerfield. I think Travelocity had the best prices.

I hope you are doing well, talk with you later...... take care
