Back from Florida!

Wednesday, March 20, 2013





too much luggage for 3 days.
 I spent last weekend in the Florida Keys attending my cousin Danny's wedding.  Joe stayed back in Cali, so I was a single mommy on this trip (but had lots of help thanks to my mom and bro.)  Sisi was an amazing traveler, so adaptable and content. Both flights were remarkably pleasant!  The main reason we've been traveling so much this past year is because everyone keeps telling us, "Your next one is going to be a little hellion! Just wait!"   So just in case, we're seeing the world now because Sisi's more than happy to tag along.  

We stayed in Islamorada, located right between Miami and Key West, the Southernmost point of the Continental US.
No beach per se at our hotel, but stairs leading into the water (which Sisi liked even better!)


Incredible wedding site.


me, mom, sisi.


 




hated paying 490.00 for her ticket, but the extra room to sprawl out was priceless!

The highlights: 
-Sisi grooved on the dance floor for 2 hours straight, and then planted a big kiss on a little 2 year old boy from Kenya named Seger.
-Wow, the clear blue water in the keys is beautiful.  I'm a big sucker for tropical beaches (already planning our next trip to Mexico!!)
-I broke my diet for fresh baked key lime pie, and it was worth it :)
-We caught up with our sorta crazy family from all over the country and had a blast reminiscing.

The only downside:
I had the song "Kokomo" in my head almost the entire time.

Oh great, it's in my head again :(

Congrats Danny and Carolyn!  Now, back to reality for me and Sisi.  Next trip- Mexico in May :))

"We'll get there fast & then we'll take it slow....." (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

I simply adore how Sisi is such an awesome world traveler!! Baby jackpot, right there. You look gorgeous, mama, love that coral dress.

Where are you headed to in Mexico? We just booked our flight to Costa Rica for the 2 of us next Feb. (Grammy's staying w/ Quinn). The hubby wants to squeeze in some surfing so I might pick your brain!

You are so gorgeous! Love that dress.

Also, is Sisi learning how to swim already? She looks so comfortable standing in the water!
