The final days of this school year are winding down (can you even believe it???) and summer break is right around the corner.  For us, this means that it is time to start thinking about our summer vacation and how we are going to spend it!  Summer vacation means different things to different people.  To us, it is a time away from the hustle and bustle of regular life to spend time with the family, experience new things and create new memories.  For others it may mean a couple’s getaway or a girl’s weekend away.  There are so many different ways we can spend our time off this summer but I know that no matter what we decide to do we always want to make the most of it because it always ends way too quickly!north dakota 3
