I know I know this blog entry is very late...BUT...I had to do my "All About Me" blog post first before I could share about my trip to Florida over xmas break. But for those of you going to Boca over the February break or anytime in the future I hope to give you some great suggestions!
I have been married for almost 14 years... I have been to Boca every year for the past 17 years or so...you see like many of you (hopefully) reading this blog my in laws live in Boca. Now let me tell that you that before I met said husband I had been to Boca ONCE! And Boca is a world like no other...really the Seinfeld episodes at Boca Del Vista are pretty on target. The "Bagel Room" alone is could make another Seinfeld spin off. The conversation usually go something like this:
"How long are you down for? when did you get here? who has a house here your parents or your in laws?" Im thinking these questions are liley some forshadowing for many of us in the future:
"when did you get down here? when are your kids and grandkids coming down? How long will they be staying?" Boca during christmas week can often be a blast from you past. Your BFF from camp, teen tour, that guy you "dated" in college which is how you explained the guy you were talking to at the pool to your MIL when she asked when in thruth "dated" is extremly polite) all the while "dated" is a very nice way of putting it. All in all it is (usually) a great week filled with quality family time, lots and lots of food, laughs and yes some tears (mine) but most importatnly lots of nice togetherness for the whole extended family.
