We went to FLORIDA!!!!!!  :-)
We took a spur-of-the-moment trip to FLORIDA over winter break!!  It was wonderful, the weather was beautiful and the kids did great during the long road trip.

Cory woke up Monday morning and said hey... lets drive to Florida... ummm really?  Okay!  The kids and I were packed before Cory had a chance to change his mind! 

We drove down and brought mom, Harry, Einstein, and their boat with us.  The purpose of the trip was to trailer the boat to Florida (for Cory).. and for the rest of us it was to GO TO FLORIDA!  Yes, I am obsessed.  Oh and Cory admitted that he was there for fun and relaxation too, but the boat part triggered his decision to vacation.

We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the weather.  We went swimming, boating, shopping, walking, and we even got to enjoy the New Years Eve fireworks right from the condo.  They were so close that we could feel them! 

Then on the way back we spent a night in Chattanooga and ended up leaving Ethan's favorite toy train there.. luckily they found it and will be shipping it home soon! 

It feels nice to be back, but man do I miss that beautiful warm weather. 

Here is a link to all of our pictures from the trip: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ckbartlett/sets/72157623132784448/show/


  1. You were that close and you didn't stop?!?! You better call us next time.

  2. Amy, we would have loved to have stopped by, but we were all fighting colds and didn't want to spread the germs. We plan to make this drive again next year. We will have to plan a time to meet up! :-)
