Cabin Fever Reliever
Packing and trying out the back packs........
She's out of here!
This past Sunday, Colin returned from a trip and I sprung this on him: "How about a little trip to Cancun?" I had gotten an e-mail offering a great rate for airline employees to an all inclusive resort in Cancun and the idea of warmth and sun had just kind of taken hold of me. To his credit, he didn't miss a beat before saying "if you want" which, considering he would have rather been home, was pretty amiable. But I think he considered the sub zero readings on the mercury and the fact that Sophia, Keenan and I were all getting a touch of cabin fever and was willing to sacrifice for a little time in the sun.
24 hours later, we were on a plane heading to Cancun. Suffice to say, the trip didn't start all that well. Keenan screamed at the top of his lungs for 2 hours of the 3.5 hour flight and the first room they gave us had ceramic tile and unprotected stairs. Anyone who know Keenan knows why this is a bad combination.
Anyway, the trip turned around by the second day. More on that and more photos in a coming posts.

Sophia loves to help, period. But she especially loves to help in the kitchen. Snapping beans is one of her favorite contributions and I don't even have to supervise anymore. She even accurately decides which ones need to be broken in half, and which ones need no further attention. I can't believe my luck, I cook decently enough but I don't exactly relish my time behind the stove. Now I have a part time assistant!
