Sunshine Days...

It's hard to believe, but spring really is trying its best to come to Washington, DC. It's a bit of a battle though. I can see buds on trees and some afternoons it ALMOST feels warm, but the mornings especially this last week have been really chilly.

Or maybe it's just that they have seemed really chilly because last week we returned from a wonderful 4 day vacation to Orlando, FL. We try to do a March trip with the boys' grandmother (Nana) every spring and in the past we've hit Myrtle Beach, SC and the Florida Keys. The decision to go to  Legoland and Sea World in Orlando was an excellent one. And as an added huge bonus, our beloved Washington Nationals were playing a spring training game during our stay and we got to take in a game on a glorious and warm Thursday afternoon.

We'd actually intended to fly out Wednesday, but because of an impending blizzard that turned into a rainstorm, the airlines canceled tons of flights including ours. But when they rebooked us for Thursday we lucked out and they only had seats available in first class, so even though we missed a day of vacation, we all did get to stay home for a "snow day", and the flight down was super comfy. Su's mom drove down from her house in SC so we were picked up at the airport and 20 minutes later were enjoying the ball game. My kind of vacation! We were also able to change our return flight from morning to afternoon, so we felt like we got some of our lost time back.

We highly recommend Florida's Legoland for young kids. Lots of rides and amazing Lego sculptures. As you can see, Danny and Benji approved!

We have a few more trips planned for the year and I must say, every year older these two get, it's just that much easier to travel with them. Danny will turn six in May and that is a little mind boggling. But it's all good. As you can see these two boys keep us running and laughing (usually). Have a great day! -Monica
