On The Road Again

We took a little road trip Monday to South Beach in Miami. Our school district is on Spring Break this week and my sister, Lisa, is up in New Jersey taking care of things with her oldest son, Philip. So I took Rachel, Kyle and their friend, Jillian, to South Beach. Ooolala, it is an interesting beach . . . We lasted about an hour.

After trying not to look at many interesting sites on the beach, we did some window shopping and enjoyed those views much better.


It's amazing the beautiful places that are a short drive away. It only took us a little over an hour to get to Miami Beach. It's like another world there. We have to go again as there is so much to see and do.


The sky was so beautiful on the ride home.

A fun day was had by all.

Why is it "interesting"??? Rachel is a stunner in that bikini though. She's going to get swept off her feet by some guy someday, honey! You got a "heartbreaker" for sure. Her mom is gorgeous also!! ;-)

Looks like you had fun! Nice pictures, especially beautiful Rachel. We don't get our spring break for a couple of weeks, and the kids lose 2 days because of snow day make-ups. Tell Rachel Chloe says "Lucky!"
