We did it! After a quick trip to Virginia where we had a couple of quick visits with folks, including new cousin Dylan 😉 and the chance to do a few pre-move errands, we took two cars, two dogs and an almost 2 year old through 5 states, a stop at Grandma and Grandpa’s and arrived here in one piece! For the next three months we are in Sunrise, Florida or as I learned while watching my gps–when you get to the end of the map, turn left, go half a mile and your destination is ahead. We are RIGHT on the edge of the Everglades, apparently about 20 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale and about 3.5 hours from Key West.
Today was spent getting settled to some degree, the largest mall in Florida is literally right across the street. We hit Target today for a few things, I got a wireless router at Best Buy as we forgot ours–and hooked it up! Surfing is way faster here than in St. Thomas for sure, I’m going to get spoiled.
Our place is fine, nothing exciting but definitely has the basics. We are right next to the pool and there is a little playground right across the parking lot. I heard there was a great dog park a mile or so away. Will have to go check that out soon. Its really hot during the day so my guess is we are going to be laying low during the day and doing the dog park/pool either early in the morning or in the late afternoon.
