Many months ago, because he’s awesome, my husband took me on a surprise trip to Florida. Did I tell you this story already? Yes, yes, I did, because, that’s right, this is the second time he has surprised me with a trip to Florida!
This time we brought Wyatt along and introduced him to the wonders of Ft. Lauderdale, sunrises over the water, and how incredibly amazing it is to get out of NYC in the dead of winter.
We went to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary, and let me tell you, anniversary celebrations with kids are slightly different than without kids.
We woke up early and watched the sunrise on the beach.
We woke up at 5:45 and hung out in the hotel room until it was light enough to actually go outside.
We watched Wyatt discover the joys of playing in the ocean, eating sand, squawking at sea gulls, and making fish faces.
We went to bed every night at 7pm. But, since we were in a hotel room… that meant me hiding in the bathroom while Joel put Wyatt to sleep in the crib and then ran out of the room to order us dinner and sit at the bar by himself until our food was ready. Then, he’d creep back into the room, sneak into the bathroom and we’d eat dinner and watch a movie on the bathroom floor until we were ready to go to sleep.
It certainly made for a memorable, and truly incredible way to commemorate 6 years of married bliss.
