It was 40 degrees today with 30 mile per hour winds and this is what Kiley, my 3 year old monkey, wanted to put on when she got home from school.  She's a little excited as we are going to Florida tomorrow for a big family vacation with siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and grandparents. 

I have been going to Sarasota, Siesta Key for the past 30 years. Siesta Key has one of the top ten beaches in the world and it's beyond beautiful.  We spend a lot of time going to the beach and then the pool, then the pool and then to the beach, then to get ice cream etc. etc....with a few meltdowns in between.  It is good fun and the kids always look forward to it all year long. 

So tonight I pack for 5 people while trying to find a bathing suit that makes my body look like a size 6...I think I vaguely remember being a size 6 back in grade school.  Then I think about how all of the kids are going to behave on the plane and I take a deep breath, cross my fingers and do a shot.  Just kidding. 

I can't wait to run, ride and get lots of rest and relaxation...ok so that was a joke also.  Come on, is vacationing with your children while being surrounded by water ever relaxing?  Hmmm...maybe when they're 16.  Please ponder that thought. 

Happy Spring!


Have a great time, when they turn 16 you will really have your hands full.
