vacation planningSummertime is a great time to spend time with your great family.  Instead of taking your entire vacation, and if your employer is willing, try taking 2 days plus the weekend at one time, that gives you 4 days of vacation and more vacation days left in your vacation plan to do it again.  Holidays that fall on a Monday or a Friday are great for this plan too.  You can end up with 5 days vacation and you only had to use 2 vacation days.
