My sister, Julie (who took this amazing picture) and I spent a few days in sunny Florida last week. We left our kids at home except for Isaac. It was great to get away for some rest and relaxation. Here are a few highlights of our trip. Check out the slideshow for more pics.
Ft. Lauderdale- sunny and 86 degrees
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach Resort. It was just completely redone and all brand new. Our room was awesome!
The lobby of the Crowne Plaza.
Isaac loved the pool with its zero-depth entry. He had fun just splashing around.
Heading out for an evening at Sawgrass Mills Mall. Over 350 shops with everything from Nordstrom outlet to Super Target to TJ Maxx to Gymboree outlet and everything in between plus PF Changs and Cheesecake Factory and Rain Forest Cafe and on and on...
Lovin' this picture of my blue-eyed baby!
My bestest friend.
Mmmmmmm...cooling off with an icecream cone on the boardwalk. Fun place for souvenir shops
and little cafe's and restaurants right on the beach.
The view from our balcony.
Enjoying lunch at Sugar Reef Grill on the boardwalk. We had shrimp quesadillas and dolphin paninis. Delicious!
Sand, Sun, Shopping, Sisters...great combination!
