After Christmas we took off and went to Florida. We could not wait to get to warmer weather, and to relax. It wasn’t so warm, because of the first “Polar Vortex” that hit the U.S., but it was nice to all be together, and relax and it was about 30 degrees warmer than home. I wish I had known it was going to be that cold in Florida, we would have taken warmer clothing. -> Or changed our vacation date.
My favorite part of our trip was watching Maelen and Rob swim from the hot tub. It was so nice to sit in the hot tub and totally relax. -> And I did, almost every single day of vacation. The seafood was so good too!!! We saved our shrimp tails for the sea gulls. The birds were always happy to see us at the beach! Rob and I needed new shoes, we had a list of some we needed to replace so we looked around the outlets, lucked out and found some good deals. Jan and I also added to our Pandora collection. We celebrated New Years at the beach. We had a nice dinner at the condo. Jan made spaghetti. We went out on the beach for the fireworks. Watching fireworks from the beach is soooo beautiful. Even if it was windy and cold!!!! It brought back memories of when I was pregnant, and Rob and I were in St. Augustine that year for New Years.
Anyways New Years night, Rob and I booked our last minute mini vacation to Walt Disney World Resort for the 6th-8th. We got a Character dining, and made an appointment for Maelen a Bibity Bobity Salon! I can’t stress enough how much fun we had at Disney!!! We stayed at Pop Century, and went to Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Dowtown Disney. Maelen was over the moon happy!!!! I was pretty exhausted. (I am still recovering from the crud, and all that walking and being on the go constantly did me in!) It was so nice to get to come back to St. Augustine and rest for a few more days after Disney and before the drive home. We had some nice beach time and hot tub time!!! It was still not warm Florida weather, but again, it was nice enough to sit outside, with jackets... not like at home. Enough of my rambling on…. now to the many, many pictures I took of our awesome vacation. Enjoy!!!
