Family vacation in Florida

I am currently on vacation with my family in Florida. My parents rent a house most winters and we decided to join them this year for 2 weeks. Luckily they got out of New England just in time to avoid all the snow.

We have been here several times and done most of the amusement parks and local attractions, so this vacation is a little more low key. Games, books, poolside relaxing and family time.

My exercise routine will mainly consist of walking or running, some ab or free weight work, doing yoga with my mom. I am getting some sun on my runs and my freckles are coming out !

As a family, we also love to play games. Of course my dad wins 80% of the time, but that’s ok, we have fun anyway. Our current favorites are Hand and Foot that you play with 6 or more decks of cards, Wizards (highly addictive) and Racko… preferably while sitting by the pool..

As we are renting a house, cooking up my usual meals has proved to be a bit more challenging. As I don’t have my usual utensils or spices, I have stayed with the basics :

Eggs, avocado, ham and a slice of toast for breakfast (or some variation of the above)

Salad, tomato, avocado and some form of protein for lunch

Rice, broccoli and salmon for dinner

So far, things have been great ! How is your week going ?

    I hope you’re having so much fun in FLORIDA with your parents! That’s great they escaped New England. The snow there is unreal. We love playing Hand and Foot at our house too!
