A little break

Eammon had a few days off from work so we decided to take a little trip to escape the obscenely high pollen counts and also so that we could enjoy a little warm weather. I scored some ultra cheap flights and for less than the cost of a tank of gas, all three of us flew down to the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area for a few days of sun, fun and relaxation. Thanks to Tiffany who gave me info on renting homes or condos privately, I found and rented a two bedroom, two bathroom condo right on the intercostal for less than the cost of a hotel room, thanks Tiff! Check out the pictures of our views. file1file2file3file4

Maisie was once again a star on the flights, falling asleep within minutes of take off and waking about half an hour before landing. The girl loves airplanes and flying which is great because both Eammon and I love to travel.

file1 We had a nice couple of days laying low, spending time at the pool and doing those family type outings that are great fun with a toddler. We did two outings, the first was to Gator Park where we did an air boat tour and watched a little alligator show. file2file3file4file5file6file7file8file9

The second outing was to Flamingo Gardens which is 60 acres of gardens and animals. file19 We took a narrated tram ride to view most of the property and then we walked around to see all the different animals.


We had beautiful weather and we just had fun being away, no phone, no schedule, no commitments. Can't wait for our next, yet to be scheduled holiday away.


  1. Welcome home guys! Look like a neat trip (you guys are so fun!).

    Hi, Lisa. Lucky all of you being able to get away from this pollen in Atlanta. I keep saying I need to leave here from March to May every year. It's been so horrible, and I think it made April sick, too. Ugh. Your trip sounds wonderful! April seems to like to fly, too, falling asleep on every flight she's been on, too. Maisie looks like she had an awesome time. Glad to hear you all had an awesome time.
