Romney Takes Summer Break Before Big Campaign Push

For Mitt Romney, it’s a family tradition that spans a decade.

The Romney clan — all 30 of them — are gathering at Mitt Romney’s New England lakeside compound for a week of home-cooked meals, sporting events and ice cream outings.

Only this time, things are a little different: The patriarch is the Republican candidate challenging President Barack Obama. And there’s a Secret Service detail in tow everywhere Romney goes.

Nevertheless, the former Massachusetts governor is sticking to his routine. He attended Sunday church and let loose on Monday with a little jet skiing. He walked barefoot with his grandchildren, posed for family photos, and visited with friends — just as he has done every other summer at his home outside Wolfeboro, N.H.
