I am sure some of you are wondering why Growing Up Savvy has been so quiet. We were away.
Some traditions just sort of happen. For the second year in a row and the third time ever, we’ve joined Evan’s family (his parents, sister and her fiancee) for a winter getaway. Depending on how everyone gets along, family vacations can be either great or miserable. We have a great relationship with my in-laws and look forward to and cherish our time together.
The winter getaway tradition, as it has become, has a rhythm; My father-in-law plans everything — he is a seasoned traveler. Though serious travelers and planners ourselves, Evan and I are happy to hand over the creative reigns and go with the flow. This year, the family settled on an 8-day cruise with a few extra days in Puerto Rico afterwards.
The cruise was lovely except for some rough seas. I was quite affected by the motion in the ocean though luckily, Sophia and Evan’s adventures were not impacted. Switching gears from small islands, we disembarked from our cruise and landed on the beaches of San Juan.
Since this is the second year we’ve travelled with a baby, I’ve accumulated quite a few pointers and will happily share them in the next few posts.
