When somebody calls you and asks if your kid can join their family on a trip to the beach and says all they’ll need is spending money, how much do you think is sufficient?  Does that mean “We’ll cover their eating, they just need to bring some spending money for souvenirs?” 

One of the kids has been asked to go to Navarre Beach, FL and they said they just needed spending money.  They asked them how much and they said “A couple hundred dollars.”  Say what?
