We got home from a sort of impromptu vacation yesterday afternoon. There is totally nothing I hate more than coming home to the realization of all that needs to be done around the house -- laundry, the fact that there is virtually nothing in the refrigerator. Still, it was a nice little getaway and I'm happy that my husband was able to get Friday off of work to make our weekend getaway a little longer. My dad had to be in Key Largo for his work so my mom and some of our family friends were there, too. And when you get the opportunity to stay in a two bedroom condo on the water for a couple days for free, you just don't say no.
I always have mixed feelings on the Keys. When you live as close to the best beaches in Florida like we do, it's hard to get excited about the pebble-y sand and murky water of the "beaches" in the Keys. As it turned out, there were Portuguese Man Of War floating up to the shore so we skipped out on the water altogether -- except the pool. Ethan was happy to swim in the pool all day everyday. It's totally his happy place. I purposefully left my camera at home so the only photos I have are straight from the good ol' iPhone.
Today is Monday and that means -- womp womp -- back to everyday life. I miss our little condo with oceanfront views but I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to have gotten away for a little while.
