(Friday Nov 16 & Sat Nov 17, 2012)
For our final 2 days in FL we wanted to make the most of being together and being outside when we could. The temperature had dropped a bit so we needed jackets but we happily wore them and still chose the cart as our preferred format of transportation. We did look a little different from the others though when we had a stroller strapped to our cart rather than golf clubs.
Hannah doesn’t use her stroller often at home but when we travel it’s great to have a place for her to be during our marathon shopping trips. My little love has started to get lost in books so sometimes we will stop in the toy dept, pick up a few books and she will slowly page through them which allows me an option to browse. We then return them to the shelf and she’s just fine with that. While away I was able to make a good dent in my Christmas shopping which was fun and also takes some of the pressure off.
Hannah’s napping location of choice while we were away ended up being snuggled on a lap in the cart. Travelling from our home to the major shopping areas was 20-30 mins when using this method of travel so it was the perfect time to hunker down for a nap. I love seeing her snuggled up to Nana enjoying this special time together.
Friday night we enjoyed a quiet night at home sharing time together. I love how being away offers us a more relaxed schedule and down time that we don’t often take at home. Hannah was in our room and this was how I found her when I went in to check on her. Oy….is she 3 or 13??
We spent the day doing a variety of things and then went out for our final supper to a new place. The wait was long but we entertained ourselves and all decided that the yummy dinner was worth the wait.
Thanks for sharing your vacation with us Mom and Dad. Safe travels home. We miss you!
