Pick one up and use it to plan, then leave it out on your coffee table so the kids – or you – can browse at your leisure. Then enjoy the moments when your kids come running to find you with the book open, talking about what they ‘can’t wait’ to do. familytravel-staycationPlanning Your Family Staycation: Fun Ideas for Your At-Home Summer Vacation Yes, this is my book.
