I'm hearing all kinds of hype about the kids going back to school, which tells me summer is making its exit.  

Summers were great as a kid, you didn't have to go to school or even get up early.  It was all about play time and maybe even a summer vacation to somewhere fun.  When I was younger, I would go spend time with my Grandma.  I wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world.

My favorite actual vacations were our trips to the Brainerd area.  My dad's sister had a cabin up there and it would make for great day trips.  We'd go shopping, fishing, to Paul Bunyan Land.  It was awesome!

What was your favorite summer vacation?
