Vacation. Base word: vacate. To leave, abandon, or get away.

That's what the Balvin family is up to, and it feels great. We are visiting friends in MI for the week. I've really needed some relaxation and fun time with my wife and kids. Today we've all gotten sun-burned at the pool, snacked on garden fresh raspberries, done some reading and enjoyed lots of treats.

I only have a dial-up connection, so it is doubtful I'll post much, but we'll see.
