Just wondering what people are doing for summer vacations this year.

We're just back from our trip to visit family in St Louis. Both my and my wife's families are there and we try to make the 16 hour drive from upstate NY at least once a year (flying is so expensive and a great big hassle, so we prefer to drive). The trip is always a bit hectic because we have so many relatives to see, but it's really nice to see everyone.

This year was our first trip without our oldest son. He just finished his first year at West Point and had summer training to attend. We missed him, but we're very proud of him and we always new the day would come that the kids would have other obligations. We still had our younger son along which made the trip nice.

Besides visiting relatives, we got to visit a few local parks, the Missouri botanical gardens, and took a day trip to tour Meramec Caverns. I got some great pictures of formations in the cave.

Does anyone else take a trip this summer?

I usually take a vacation in late August early September but don't know if I will this year since sales at the other site have been so dismal I do not have the extra money. I usually go north to Ohio where part of my family live. It is usually nice there in August September, here in Florida it is so hot I stay inside during those two months. Hoping things break lose here soon.

My husband is self employed and it is hard to get him to take time off.  We were going to do some day trips this summer when I had my vacation, but now I got a new job so that means I have to wait for time off.  Well worth it to get out of my last job.
