In February, the kids and I headed to Miami for five days together. Of course, five days together feels like a balm in comparison to the last two weeks of every waking hour as one big team.
It was the last week of the month, a chance to reset and ready ourselves for the heavy work and school-load March promised. And while things are vastly different, and March has flown by in one blurred breath, I’m so happy we took it.
Until the other day, I didn’t have the chance to look back on our photos, which I planned to do earlier in the month. There are two film rolls ready to be printed when I’m able to, and plenty of videos I caught too.
Neverthless, here are a few photos (and simple things that made it special) if you’d like to see…
We spent almost every single morning in the pool. River swam and swam, and Oak watched on.
And almost every night, we watched the sun set.
We walked a lot to break up the hours between the pool and beach.
And on one of those evening walks, we had icecream with cereal on top at Kith, a recommendation from my friend, Anja. Such a hit.
Speaking of consuming, I had my first drink in 30 days on the beach. (My 30 day break was in July for my 30th birthday). My drink was watery, and frequently interrupted by kiddos, but super special when I looked back at the 30 days prior to having it. Have you ever tried not drinking for a period of time?
I decided to bring my old phone so River or Oak could use it on the plane if the other one was using the ipad. I put Frozen 2 on it and a game or two. The kids were obsessed with the last minute trick.
The forecast for our last day said rain all day, so we spent the entire day at The Frost Science Aquarium and Planetarium. You guys, IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! We could have stayed longer, but literally could not.
Whether it was a train ride, a flight a few months ago, or a simple drive with the windows down, what made your last trip special?
