What's "Summer" When You're 48?

My kids' excitement around the last day of school was electric. But summer sort of sucks when you're in your forties. Where's the "break" part? These kids don't realize how good they have it! You live for a week's break off work maybe twice the entire summer, when you can get away and actually enjoy the season, like here, at my hometown of Chicago, Navy Pier. Update: Most kids seem so buried in their phones we could all actually be in the middle of a winter snow storm. #GenerationX #NavyPier
