School is almost out and summer vacation is just around the corner.
Everyone has heard his or her child complain of boredom. Better than
watching TV or staring at the computer, get out and do something!
Vacations give parents and children memories to last a lifetime. Fun family
vacations are events to be remembered. A vacation gives everyone in the
family a chance to share the same experiences, to laugh together, play together
and just BE together. Not all vacations require travel, two weeks and big
bucks. Local daytrips can be a vacation with imagination and forethought.
