Every year during the holidays we try to take a vacation to celebrate V & K and Kenny’s Birthday.
We must have felt the chill in the air because we escaped to our favorite place just in time to escape the BOMB CYCLONE.
It has been 8 years since I have flown, yes 8… we have been cruising and driving since the twins were born. It was a bit nerve wrecking to travel on a plane during winter break with a little one. The girls were so excited to travel via airplane rather than sitting in the car state to state. I have to say I can remember the excitement I had for my first plane ride. They were so well behaved – all 3! The girls were interested in their books and movies while Bash slept during the flight coming and going.
Here’s a TIP: We semi carefully chose the flight time to Florida to coincide with Bash’s morning naps… (score!) this really does work if your child is consistent with napping.
We visited some of our favorite places and people while on this trip. It’s always great to see family that you don’t usually get to see during the holidays.
Quality time with each other as well as being present in the moment makes lasting memories.
The temperatures were not as warm as we would have liked during our last few days but it was much appreciated. Our NYC life was in a cold mess of a cyclone. We continued to receive updates and check on our home during those days. The snow looked beautiful at first fall but when temps are that low, things can become scary. As we thought about returning home we decided to leave a little behind in our place in Palm beach… could this be a sign of us truly thinking of staying longer and longer each trip?!
Our excursions around the state of Florida are always fun! We try to get to the beaches and visit our regular breakfast, lunch, and dinner places as well as book stores. We enjoyed the comfort of Mazda 6 Grand Touring to get around during this trip. We were all able to fit comfortably and trunk space was unlike any other vehicle. The trunk space and safety features are amazing. With 3 children safety is very important when driving. Luxury, comfort, safety and style!
*Safety and Security Highlights: – Engine immobilizer anti-theft system – Foldaway brake pedal assembly – LATCH child seat safety tethers – Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) – Available Smart Brake Support (SBS) with Collision Warning** – Available Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)* – Rain-sensing windshield wipers*
What more can you ask for in a vehicle….oh and excellent on gas!
We returned to NYC with a smooth flight over the clouds and through the winds.
Thankfully everyone and everything survived and we were happy to return to our beautiful city!
