Knitting by the pool

At first, I was a little bit disappointed that we would be spending March break in Orlando.  Before having kids, we felt very clever heading to Europe for March break.  Canadians often flee south, for the sunshine, but have to face crowds and higher prices.  In Europe, spring had sprung and the hordes of tourists had yet to arrive.

Memories of March Break past. Paris.

This March break has been a bit of an exception, with a house purchase on the horizon and a toddler along for the ride, Europe (or anywhere further afield) was pretty much out of the question.  We do plan to share our future travels with our son, but a time zone change with a two and a half year old was way more than these exhausted parents were ready to face this week.

So to Grandmother’s house (in Florida) we go!  So far it’s been a relaxing week of sunshine, morning runs, bonding with grandparents, free babysitting, restaurants with huge portions and of course, knitting by the pool.  Today we had a great time with our little guy on a fantastic swamp tour – just nobody tell him about Disney World…
