There's a saying that if you include the kids, it’s no longer a vacation, it's just a trip. While vacationing with your family around the country and world opens your kid's eyes to the world and make for a lifetime of memories, it can be suffocating for you and your spouse. But with a little planning ahead of time, you can have the best of both worlds of being with your family and having some alone time with your spouse. First, book a stay at hotels with built-in childcare. IT may be worth heading to an all-inclusive resort or cruise as most feature a parenting perk of supervised childcare. Plan your vacation time around day camp.  There are hundreds of day camps all across the country. IF your summer vacation takes you to the Smoky Mountains, look for an day camp close by and book the kiddos.  Not only will the kids have an enjoyable time with activities and experiences around people their own age, you can have adult time exploring the area too. If you are taking a trip with other family members of friends, tag-team supervisory roles.  Each parent can plan a kid-free day or evening. During that time, the other parents will watch all the little ones. It costs nothing extra and the kids will have fun playing together. You can also bring along the grandparents for some extra pairs of hands. Even if you can’t completely get away from your kids, it’s worth it to carve in some solo moments. After your kids go to bed, you can plan some alone time. Remember to bring a baby monitor to keep tabs on your sleeping angels while you are your spouse enjoy the moment of time to yourselves.
