A: Typically this would be a part of a summer vacation schedule and I am assuming that the normal schedule consists of an alternating weekend schedule.

A parent can designate a seven day period and attach that to their weekend at the start or end of the one week vacation period thereby giving ten consecutive overnights of custody. However, someone could not attach to a another period of time such as a holiday that would give their regular weekend, the one week vacation period plus the holiday/special day such that the consecutive overnights would be more than ten overnights.
