Today it is 3 degrees with a windchill of -25. During the course of the day it will warm up to near 20, which will bring strong winds and snow. So tonight I get to share the road with a bunch of lunatics in near white-out conditions. Got me thinking about the escape my family will be making in a few weeks to South Florida. It will only be five days, but it will be amazing to feel the sun, walk around in shorts and a wife-beater, and swim in the pool and ocean.
I am not looking forward to the plane this time though. My son is now begining to test, and I have a feeling he is not going sit calmly on our laps and fall asleep. We already have the tickets, and now I regret not getting him his own seat so we can strap him into his carseat. I plan on a heavy dose of netflix to offer him a distraction, but the flight is 3.25 hours long, so we are assured a meltdown of some sort. The things that distracted him as an infant are not going to fly as a toddler, so we will be that family pissing everyone else off I guess.
I plan on golfing and doing a lot of swimming with my son. I am also going to get a kite and fly that with him down at the beach.
Anyone got any spring break/getaway trips planned in the next month or two??
