    We have plans to go to the water park and the amusement park. We also are going camping and tubing. My niece and my nephew are coming to visit for a few weeks. We haven’t seen them in years so that’s what I’m most excited for.

  3. Anita L

    I don’t have any real plans at this point. Hubby is laid off at this time, so our finances will most likely keep us local. I’ll probably spend time working in my garden if that’s considered fun!

    The Summer is our families fun time! We camp for 5 weeks out of the Summer. 1 Week at a time & different destinations around our State. Lots of Swimming, Bonfires with tons of stories! We ride bikes, hike, just let loose & forget about school etc. We also go to Michigan Adventures twice in the Summer. Once at the beginning of the Summer & 1 last time before school starts. I also let my kids have slumber parties, lots of snacks, movies & swimming. We do so much, there isnt a day we just relax! Here in Michigan you have to take advantage of the nice weather because you never know what the temperature or weather will be like the following day!

  41. Kathy Ross

  47. Linda Szymoniak

    There are two weekend events one of my daughters and I have gone to for many years (one for 10, the other for 12), but we’re skipping both this year for different reasons. However, we’re looking at doing one or more day trips to state and national parks in Indiana (where we live) and Illinois (we’re just five miles from the IN/IL border). We’re also looking into a weekend trip to a beautiful state park in Ohio we haven’t been to before. I’ll probably take one of my three Coonhounds on the day trips (can’t handle them all and figure this would be a great time to work on training and bonding with each). We’ll have to see if we can find a dog-friendly hotel for the weekend trip. Otherwise we’ll be staying home. My sister and her family will be in town next month for my brother-in-law’s family get-together, so I’ll get to see them, and my youngest is talking about coming in for a few days from Florida, so hopefully I’ll get to see her, too.

  48. Anita Duvall

    We live 3 hours away from Branson, MO. We like to go about 1 weekend a month during the warm weather months instead of a long vacation.

  49. Chrissy

    We are planning to do several day trips to explore our local area. With a little one we’ve found that to be more relaxing because we get to sleep in our own beds at night and don’t have to pack a bunch of baby stuff!

  50. Sara P

    We do not have any travel plans this summer, but still plan to have lots of fun with our 21 month old son by swimming, going to the park, and playing around the house!

  53. Erin Madigan

    I don’t have any fun summer plans (yet) for this summer. I hope to take a spontaneous beach trip soon.
