Summer is finally here and today, Kid President is revealing what kids really want out of a summer vacation in a brand new episode of his self-titled viral series that is currently featured exclusively on TODAY.com.
In partnership with HomeAway and hosted on SoulPancake, Robby Novak and his brother-in-law Brad Montague deliver another comical, yet inspiring video that reminds viewers to take a “whole vacation” this summer. Kid President encourages parents to let loose and celebrate their ‘inner child’, because what kids really want from a vacation is the ability for their parents to relax and have fun with them. He also reminds us that family time isn’t something we find in a fancy hotel lobby or at a resort – it’s something we make, by spending time with each other without distractions.
Here are three tips Robby and Brad gave to TODAY.com to help nail your family trip this summer.
3 tips to nailing the perfect “whole vacation”
1. Take lots of games to play with each other. Just don’t take games that will make you fight. —Robby
2. Go somewhere and stay somewhere that allows you to relax and be together. —Brad
3. Laugh a lot. —Robby
“We really just want to spend time with you,” Robby reminds parents in the video. “Yeah, you.”
