Staycation Ideas for Families

Just to be completely honest, I have to say that I DREAM of going on holiday. The idea of only spending fun, quality, stress-free (OK, almost stress-free) time with my family in the sunshine some where is so tempting. When it comes to going on holiday, I am NOT a home-girl.
