We usually wait until the summer to come to Miami, but we couldn't wait this year. The weather had been a bit too cold, and the tickets weren't as expensive as they usually are during the summer.
This time to change from our daily routine which consists pretty much as; pool, and beach, and then everyday repeat, we decided to take a short road trip to Orlando. My older son will be 12 really soon, and when we asked what he wanted for his birthday he said he wanted to go to one of the parks in Orlando. So he picked Islands of Adventure, and off we went. He had a blast!! Me?? Not so much. When he was blasting off the Hulk or Harry Potter's dragons, I was looking after the little one. But it was definitely nice to see him soooo happy, and the weather wasn't the scorching heat of the summer.
It was nice to spend two days there, especially because we got to stay with some friends whom we haven't seen in so long.
Miami has been great, Orlando was "magical" (pun intended), the weather has been amazing. I'm not trying to make any of you, who are still stuck in winter weather, jealous. I'm just so very grateful that we got to do this, and see the beautiful blue skies everyday.
Wishing you all a great weekend.
