We had a wonderful mini-vacation, I guess that’s a good term, we were only gone four days, but it felt like longer in a great way.
I don’t really enjoy my kids fussing in the backseat of the new ride, the van allowed them to spread out more, but honestly in 4 months the girls will be driving and our days of family driving vacations are numbered. They managed, but were quite vocal about any hint of discomfort..LOL.
The beaches in the Keys are not like those here in Central FL, it was weird. The water color is just unreal. I promise to include pictures tomorrow at the latest. We mostly hung at the pool and slathered on lots of high # sunscreen. I feel healthy in my careful tan……..and it looks ok too. We enjoyed eating dinner out and my kids tried new foods and didn’t fuss at all about that. I love looking in all those cheesy shell shops and t shirt shacks and the kids got a couple of touristy gifts.
Getting away from the routine and hurried life we lead was so good. I slept in, did no dishes or laundry, and enjoyed being with my family and relaxing. I almost finished a book I’m reading and I didn’t feel guilty doing any of this!
