Florida, Day Three

Wednesday, March 12, 2008 by Myself


The kids couldn't even last 12 hours today. I don't know why, we only went to the beach in Ft. Lauderdale, walked around for a couple miles, and went swimming in the resort pool. By 7pm Nick was asking to go to bed, Andrew was telling us he was tired by not listening and running around crazy. Getting to Ft. Lauderdale early was the best thing we did today. We were at the Ocean by 10:00 am. Not only was the sun not too hot yet, but none of the spring break party kids were up yet. April even ordered fish at the local restaurant we went to. It is amazing how much better fish tastes when it doesn't have to take a trip across half the country. Ok, I'm going to take a lesson from the kids and vegetate in front of the TV for a bit. First, I have uploaded 3 days of pictures to Picasa.

Florida, Day One and Day Two

by Myself


Well, we got to FL yesterday. For taking an early flight, we did not get to the condo till 3. The plane took off 50 minutes late, and well Miami Airport is a zoo. It really took way too long to get our car, out luggage and get out of the airport. I am not going to complain about the drivers in MN (for at least a week). Nobody here can merge, or for that matter drive. We are in a different resort than the last time we were here, It is owned by the same company, but is newer. Basically, it is just the reverse setup of the unit we would have had a mile north at the other place. We are staying at Vacation Village Mizner Place in Weston, FL. This new resort is smaller (which is really nice), and is just across the street from the local shopping area. The shopping area has a Publix (grocery store) and a bunch for upscale and independent shops. Walking to the grocery store is really nice, especially since we have a full kitchen here. We used the local store tonight and had a nice meal on the patio. Posts might be a little slow, since to use the internet in my room I have to use the antenna post to get a wireless signal.
