My family and I are going on vacation for a week starting tomorrow, well not really a vacation but a staycation.

Since my husband did not find out until recently when he could go on vacation, it was very challenging to make any travel plans, so we deiced to stay close to home and do all those things we talk about doing but never have time to do.

Friends of ours are letting us use their lake house for a couple of days, and we are going to have two days of laying around reading and relaxing. We are going to the Aquamarine in Chicago which we have never done, and we have lived here for 12 years. We are going to two museum's and having a day filled with art, and lunch by Lake Michigan. It will be a week filled with new adventures in our own home state.

I am looking forward to hanging out with the family and spending time relaxing and enjoying time with each other.

Anyone else having a staycation this year?

I will still be posting all week, so stop by everyday to check out something new. I will take lots of pictures and post them in a post close to the end of the week.

Have a great week everyone!
