Summer is in full swing and I am absolutely loving it. Swimming, beach days, BBQ with friends – what’s not to love?

One of my favorite things about summer is getting together with family for family vacations. My in-laws do a yearly trip to San Diego and my family goes to Lake Powell every year. My husband and I enjoyed going together to these annual family trips for years.
