Key West

This past week was Fall Break for the kids and although we didn't have a family trip planned, Robby and I got out of town for a quick getaway to Key West.  We were so thankful for Gigi and Papa keeping the kids until Mimi could get into town and then for her keeping them entertained for the rest of the week.

We left on Sunday morning and flew to Key West.  We spend the day exploring the town and hanging with friends.  Seeing sights like the Southern Most Point and some of the other historical views kept us busy all day.

The next day we met up with a few other friends and checked into the house we were staying in for the rest of the week.  We were lucky enough to have access to a private boat and enjoyed lots of time on the water.  The views were gorgeous, there was tons of sea life for us to see, and the guys were on the hunt for lobster!

The week was spent feasting on wonderful meals, enjoying the company of fun friends, and taking in the gorgeous views over the water.

On our last day the weather cooperated and we got to visit Ft. Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas National Park.  It was 70 miles off shore and a very long boat ride, but so worth it for the amazing history lesson we got to have and the gorgeous views.

The next day, we were beyond excited to come home and see the kids.  It felt like we were gone forever and we missed them all so much!!!  Nothing like a great welcome home though. Coming from a tropical vacation to cold and rainy weather was a shock!  That and the fact that Handley woke up sick that night was total real life.  However, it was nice to be able to spend a few days away with Robby and I felt refreshed and rejuvenated to take on whatever might come my way!
