Winter getaway to Florida

My family and I just returned from a quick trip to Florida to visit her Grandparent’s at their winter retreat.  The day that we left, a few inches of snow were forecast to drop on our house, but we had already landed in Florida by the time that started.  We were greeted with breezy 70 degree air and bright sunshine.  As always, I try to get some non-family pictures and here are my favorites.

Just back from vacation in Mexico

What better time to take a trip to a warm Caribbean climate than the dead of winter?  My wife and I both thought the same thing and booked a trip to the Dreams Resort in Puertos Aventura’s in Mexico.  We spent 4 nights relaxing and getting away from it all.  We snorkeled in the ocean, in a cenote and in a cave.  Dayna swam with Dolphins, Sea Lions and Manatee’s.  The resort threw a huge Super Bowl party complete with fake stadium displays, workers dressed as Cheerleaders, Security guards, players and referee’s.  Plenty of food as well.  There were beautiful sights, quiet nights and no work at all.  A fantastic trip.
