Senator takes his kids on a vacation...to a deserted island

Sen. Jeff Flake joined us on the show today and discussed his unconventional Memorial Day weekend vacation.

He took his two youngest sons, Tanner (15) and Dallin (13) to a deserted island.

Their only tools: hammocks, spear, snorkel gear, hatchet, magnifying glass, desalinator, and a satellite phone (at the insistence of his wife).

The Flakes swam with sharks in order to spear fish to eat and built campfires by using a magnifying glass to create a spark. Their other source of food? Sen. Flake says they ate "a lot of coconuts".

Check out the video Tanner Flake created about their trip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7oy31MbGq-c#!
