December- FL and Christmas

In mid-December, I flew by myself with the kids to Bonita Springs, FL.  We had a sunny, warm and relaxing time staying with my in-laws.  I especially miss getting in the hot tub every day :)  Every other day we went to the beach and all the rest of the time we stayed at the condo and used the pool.  174 more words
