WOLFEBORO, N.H. (AP) — Mitt Romney is on vacation this Fourth of July week — but not from politics.

The Republican presidential candidate is enjoying the summer holiday with his large family at his lakeside vacation home outside of Wolfeboro, N.H.

He's also huddling with his top campaign advisers, including his campaign manager and the aide charged with overseeing his vice presidential search. Plus, his top strategist is in town shooting video for new TV ads.

Romney himself is set to march in the local July 4 parade. And while Romney and his family haven't encouraged media coverage of their ice cream outings and sports events, they haven't shied away from the cameras.
