Mike needed to spend a week in India, so we scheduled his trip to coincide with our Spring Break from CC so that the boys and I could fly to Florida. Obviously, much changed since the day we made our plans. Mike flew to London (without any wi-fi on his flight) and found out when he arrived that India had closed its borders and he would need to fly back to Denver. Meanwhile, the boys and I had already landed in Florida to spend time with my parents.
Our week there started much like we had hoped, with various plans in place, but we slowly took more activities off our agenda when it became apparent that we needed to practice social distancing.
We had a wonderful time there. It had been years since our last trip to Florida and we hadn’t seen their condo, yet. Micah was struck by how much Florida was like a jungle/rain forest. Ethan was enamored with the opportunities to take lots of pictures with his Grandpa.
Some condo highlights included lots of time reading, scootering, and playing in the pool, as well as piano-playing, game-playing (milestone alert – Ethan and I played our first games of scrabble), worksheet-making, and picture-editing.
Some outside of the condo highlights included the rodeo, the beach, a boys’ only kayak trip, my Dad’s band concert, and lots of walks to see wildlife. The boys took a bunch of great pictures, which we will hopefully eventually do a post about on here. My dad taught them how to edit them, which was a fun new skill for them.
Obviously, time with our family (and the fun overlap with Mr. Rick!) are the things we cherished the most. Thanks for hosting us so graciously during a strange and uncertain time!!
