Winter Family Vacay!

We've never done a Christmas vacation to warm temperatures before but the timing of this year's Christmas break....and the fact that we didn't have a chance to get away as a family over the summer...we decided to try and make it work. Some online searching and deal hunting made us choose Miami, Florida as our destination.

It was an early morning departure with a 2:00am wake up call...
and watching the sun rise during our first of two flights...


after our second flight we arrived in Miami, we stopped for a quick bite to eat at Chick-fil-a, found our hotel, and still had a little bit of daylight to sit by the pool. Even though the temperature was about 26 degrees, the pool water was cool and so all we did was enjoy the view and the ability to be outside...in January....in our bathing suits!




The girls did each other's hair:

When it was dark, we freshened up in our hotel room...


...and then walked over the Cracker Barrel for supper-yum!

I'm so thankful for this chance to get away as a family of 5 and the time we have to spend together. It was nice to just sit outside the restaurant after supper watching the kids play checkers.
