It was so much fun to get away for a few days. Prince Charming and I had so much fun together. He had meetings in the mornings while I slept in (bliss!) and then we got to spend time together afterwards. We stayed in a NICE hotel that was on a golf course, across the street from a HUGE mall, and minutes from the beach! On Thursday morning I took a shuttle to the beach (about a 5-minute ride) where they had a private beach specifically for our hotel. I put sunscreen on my shoulders and my face before I left and planned to put sunscreen on the rest of my body when I needed it (since I never burn). BAD IDEA! I got carried away reading my book and 2 hours later, Prince Charming joined me on the beach and noticed that I was looking rather pink. I then put sunscreen on. I realized a few hours later I was completely and totally fried. Apparently, the sun in Miami is quite a bit hotter than it is here. I have NEVER had a sunburn this bad! From the tips of my fingers all the way to my toes (minus my face and shoulders), I am strawberry red. Still.
We enjoyed the rest of our trip, but I have been in a lot of pain, wasn’t able to sleep well, and move rather strangely in an effort to avoid even more pain. :)
I’m so thankful for a little getaway with the man of my dreams! We missed the boys like crazy and were so excited to see them today (although they didn’t seem to miss us a bit). And you better believe next time I go away for a beach vacation, I will be drenched in sunscreen!
