Life lately: staying warm in sunny Florida

We have jet-setted off to Naples, Florida for a few days to escape the crazy snowy north. I am spoiled, I know.... but with a new baby arriving in February, and a jam-packed schedule up until then, there will be no time this winter/spring for any kind of an escape or babymoon. So we are squeezing it in now, and it has been wonderful!

My in-laws have a place here in Naples, which makes travelling with kiddies SO easy. We are already set up there with strollers, high chairs and kids beds... not to mention my wonderful mother-in-law who cooks delicious meals for us, and babysits in the evening so that the hubby and I can go out for much needed date nights :)

^^ we visit Naples frequently, so we have our usual stops and traditions. Like taking Zac to the Naples Zoo, and eating lunch on the beach at the Ritz hotel (even if we aren't staying there). The kids meals come in these cute little bento-boxes, and they have delicious fish tacos for the adults. ^^

^^ Zac thought the white sand was snow, and was afraid to touch it. We had to carry him the entire time... and with a 29-week belly, carrying a two year old is getting tricky. He's such a monkey that son of mine! ^^

^^ This was the first time that Zac was actually interested in the pool. He LOVED it! And speaking of love, Zac is completely in love with his baby cousin Lola. He always asks to hold her and tickle her toes, and push her in the stroller. I think he's going to be a great big brother ^^

It's been a lovely little getaway in the sunshine state, but tomorrow we head back to reality. Such is life. We have a few days in Montreal and then we're heading back up north for work until Christmas.

I hope you're doing well out there.
