A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.
~Robert Orben

We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings.
~Erma Bombeck

Those that say you can't take it with you never saw a car packed for a vacation trip.

By and large, mothers are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.
~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Laughter is an instant vacation.

Vacation used to be a luxury, but in today's world it has become a necessity.

Vacation Frustration
Our family vacationed in Europe.
We flew to the beaches of Spain.
We hopped on a ferry to England.
We traveled through France on a train.

We lugged all our luggage to Denmark.
We dragged all our baggage to Greece,
We hoisted our backpacks and handbags,
our suitcase, our trunk and valise.

We rambled through dozens of ruins.
We wandered through castles galore.
We must have seen hundreds of statues --
cathedrals and mosques by the score.

We pored over paintings in Paris.
We tramped through museums in Rome,
and all of the while I was thinking
how much I would rather be home.

At last we are done with our travels!
We've seen every kingdom and nation.
But we're so completely exhausted
that we need another vacation!
--Kenn Nesbitt

The places we have gone to
and the trips that we have taken
Photographs of love and laughs
of another family vacation.

It doesn't matter where we go
as long as we're together
At different ages, on these pages-
we'll be on vacation forever.
