Well, we made it...FINALLY!! Traveling with a 41/2 yr old, not so bad, but add in a 17mth old....uh , not so fun! He actually did pretty well till the last half hour, our plane arrived in Ft. Lauderdale to some stormy weather so we had to just sit and wait to be taxied in to the gate.

Went to the grocery store, good 'ol Publix and arrived at our GORGEOUS RESORT!!! OH MY GOODNESS, IT'S BEAUTIFUL...AND THE VIEW, ahhhhh beach & pool view. We are so fortunate to be here! :o) Oh and hotel beds, I sleep the best in them! LOVE THEM!!!!

So our day has been off to a beautiful start. I didn't shut the curtains in the master suite because I wanted the sunlight to shine through the sheers and wake us up. Oh, but I forgot I already have a 17mth old alarm clock, LOL! I woke up with both my boys while my angel stayed sleeping . . . stepped out of the bedroom patio doors and all I heard were the beautiful sound of the ocean slowly awakening too, watched the sun rising slowly, breathed in that FANTASTIC smell of the beach, salty and fresh, and looked over to the other patio door as Chris stepped out with a cup of coffee for me . . .


We had some cereal, walked across to the beach and then finished our morning at the pool. We just ate some lunch and now I'm going to put Christopher down for a nap, make a pot of coffee and sit outside with Chris and Adrianna! :o) You don't know how much I want to go ahead and put the clothes into the drawers, finish unpacking, and all the "organizational things" I love to do. BUT Chris told me not to be a "killjoy" and sit back and RELAX!!! (I did do the dishes, but promised to stop there). He told me to live like a slob for a week.....mmmmmm - I don't think I could do that but I WILL RELAX! HA!

We are having dinner at Chris's Uncle Mario and Aunt Carmela's house and visiting with all of Chris's cousins and their kids at 6:30. I'm so excited, it'll be a TON of fun, noisy, but fun. A typical Italian dinner and household for SURE!

I'll post a couple pics soon.... off to the coffee pot!
