We’ve never been ones to really celebrate spring break. I skipped that entire portion of young adulthood, where you fly off to Mexico for a week and get particularly drunk and have the time of your life. Spring break now ‘a days are simple weekends away. And truthfully, even though the partying weekends sound pretty fantastic once in the blue moon, I wouldn’t trade the short and sweet weekends away as a family for anything.
When Bugaboo and Kid & Coe reached out to me seeing if we wanted to go away for a simple and relaxing weekend, we of course said yes. Our Bugaboo Bee was one of River’s first strollers, and having the new Bugaboo Bee 3 for baby Oak, seemed like a natural progression of our relationship and our family. If you haven’t heard of Kid & Coe, they provide beautiful family friendly homes for families around the world. Their homes are furnished with beds, cribs, toys, and the like, to make your trip a smooth one with your little ones.
We left early on Monday morning (our weekend) to enjoy a few days in Miami Beach. The home we stayed in was just… beautiful. We were greeted with a fresh boutique of red roses, snacks for the next few days and a little present for River. Thank you sweet host! It was a dream home! Both mornings we had the chance to sleep in and eat breakfast out in the backyard, beside the pool, right under the sun. Every time I saw River, she was usually carrying as many toys and stuffies as her little wiggly arms could hold at one time.
I think the part that we really loved the most, second to sunset watching, was being able to cook and eat in. Eating out on vacations is incredibly costly, and it was good to have a refrigerator to stock, and meals to create together. It left Peter and I both feeling incredibly secure with our trip budget.
Coming home was bitter sweet. On one hand, we were excited to get back into routine and greet spring, but on the other hand, we knew that it wouldn’t be as warm as it was in Miami. I’m so thankful that I get to do these kinds of things with my kids and my husband, even if only for a few short days. Thank you Bugaboo and Kid & Coe for the generous accommodations that made this spring break weekend possible!
