Summer Vacation Is Family Bonding Time

It was Ean’s (my step-son) high school graduation yesterday. I think it was the first time that I saw a lot of people in just one place. (I mean, here in Michigan only.) The ceremony didn’t take very long as it usually does; and we were glad that it went that way because my husband was already sweating and was uncomfortable inside that very crowded gymnasium.

After the ceremony, we had some picture taking and then we heeded to a restaurant for celebration. There were ten of us on one long table. It was such a merry night, everybody was talking about achievements and plans and suggestions. Then later on, the conversation switched to traveling. A relative was sharing their vacation in Las Vegas and their good experiences, while the other one was talking about their vacation in Florida and California.

Summer time is about vacation and traveling because it is when the school stops. Most working parents took vacation leave to have a whole family vacation away from home. That is a good way to unwind our minds, have undivided time with the family and relax our body, too.

A family vacation is a great way to reconnect, unwind and relax. Well most the time any how. LOL Hubby & I are going to San Diego in a few days for a quick get away and are lucky to be able to stay at his dads house. That's another benefit to vacations that are taken close to family or friends.
