Just got back from sunny Florida!  It was a fun, HOT trip.  Temperatures stayed in the 90’s with some afternoon rain showers which helped cool off the crazy heat.  We stayed at Bonnett Creek Resort which is within the Disney complex, & where my brother has a timeshare.  No Disney World parks this year!  We chose to go Universal Studios this time, and so happy we did as all of us, including the adults had an amazing time!  Florida is always a good idea……

Our annual mother daughter trip to New York was filled with lots of fun, food, shopping, walking, more walking, and squishy hunting!  We stayed at The Gansevoort in the Meatpacking District, our new favorite hotel in the city!  Eat: breakfast at Bubby’s and Star Diner, Eataly, Serafina, the food halls in both the Chelsea and Gansevoort Markets.  Room Service!  We also used Uber Eats one night & ordered fast food to our room.  Squishy Store: Elizabeth Center in Chinatown.  Walking:  The Highline, Washington Square, Union Square, Soho, Greenwich Village, Flatiron District, Chelsea, Tribeca. I ❤ New York.

A quick family getaway in Nassau. Bahamas gave us some much needed R and R for a few days. We traveled to Nassau which was a nice and quick 3.5 hr flight.  Stayed at the Melia Nassau Beach Hotel.  Beautiful island, friendly people and great food.  It sure is better in the Bahamas!
