Babymoon

Eric and I just returned from about a week-long visit in Fort Lauderdale, FL. It was so relaxing-- exactly what we needed! The flight tickets were inexpensive, Grandpa Nial let us use his condo, and Eric's Dad let us use his car... cheap trip plus R&R, can't ask for much more!

Every morning, we walked out to the beach, got some sun, walked around Lauderdale by the Sea for some lunch, and headed back to the condo to cool down. Once we were back to a comfortable temperature (it is super hot in Florida!), we walked downstairs to the pool at Mayberry Mansions, the condo that Grandpa Nial let us stay at. The residence was so lovely and peaceful-- we absolutely loved staying there!

Our home for the week

After pool time, we took a daily nap, and come evening we'd either venture out to a local restaurant or meet up with Eric's Dad and his friends for some fabulous dining. We were well fed in Florida!

And on the final night, as we were shutting down the condo, we both looked at each other and agreed that we weren't quite ready for the vacation to be over. Usually when we're on vacation for that long, we're both ready to be home by the last day, so that tells you how much we enjoyed this last hurrah before the baby's arrival. It was a fun little vacation, one that we will always remember since the next vacation we take will be significantly different, but in the most awesome way possible.
