How do you use your summer fun?

Most summers we do both, we take a few weeks and go up north and also camp and do small trips locally. This summer we're just taking small trips here and there locally, when we can.
My DH doesn't get any time off right now:( and we couldnt' afford a big vaca anyway. He thinks that 'normal' people do not take a big vaca every year, I try to tell him that actually, it's the norm to take a vaca every year, he doesn't agree, lol. I'm fine not taking vacations, but I think our kids miss out on some things. We used to go to the beach for a week because my grandmother owns a house on the beach, and I went as a kid, but stuff happened within my family and now no one uses it :(
I'm sure once we feel a little more settled and DH is making a little more money (or if I go back to work) we will save for a vacation, and after a year he should get some time off from this new job. We'll see. This economy has kind of ruined all of our plans, goals, and ambitions on the financial front.
