Sometimes it is hard to find a day where we can all meet for lunch... let alone a block of 5 days to have a girls trip in Florida... But the stars aligned for a long weekend in February and it all came together! My mom is a superstar travel agent and managed to find an amazing hotel suite for us to stay in and coordinate our flights so that we all arrived about the same time in Orlando.
As luck would have it, Orlando was having record LOW temperatures for February...but it was still much warmer than Seattle!
The gorgeous resort had it's own lake!
So when the pool is out...we shop! And we pretty much did ALL day long....just breaking for good food, of course. Orlando is shopping mecca. I could not believe the crowds in all the stores, parking lots, etc. It was nuts! And we found some great deals even though I couldn't really shop for me due to the baby bump...but I had a great time shopping for our sweet baby!
One night we had a fantastic meal at The Melting Pot. I hadn't ever been before and it was just as amazing and slow-paced and relaxed as I would have hoped. Yum!
We also ventured into Downtown Disney one night for some yummy food and window shopping.
Our final day brought the lovely 80 degree temps...so we soaked up the day by the pool!
And opted for these boat cruisers (kind of like a golf cart on water)...super quiet and soothing and you don't have to make any effort. ha!
We stayed up late every night, never adjusting to east coast time, and never tire of endless conversations and fun. We all get along so well and it's just a treat to be distraction free knowing the kids are just fine home. Can't thank my mom enough for making these trips happen!
