'family day' - holiday monday

I kinda wish I could say I was out there skating or sleighing on "Family Day". No, I wasn't. I'm so over winter already!

I spent today doing something much better, by far, than exposing myself to the chilly elements of this crazy country. I spent today packing our suitcases, because we're heading to the Caribbean - Cuba - in 6 DAYS! Oh man, I am so ready for some sunshine!

When I told Lilah about our upcoming trip to Cuba she seemed pretty happy with my description. However, when I searched the hotel name and showed her the Google images of the hotel, pool, beach, etc... She clapped her hands with excitement and said: "Oh my, I think I'm more excited than you!" When Baba arrived home from work that same evening, she ran to him and said: "Baba! We're going to Cuba and you don't need your snowsuit there!" A few days later she was looking through a magazine and pointed out a picture to me. She said: "Oh, I think these people are in Cuba, because they're wearing shorts and t-shirts!" She's been telling random people about our trip, like the lady in the M&M meat shop and the teller in Farmboy!

She's very very excited! Today I practically had to peel her off the ceiling after mentioning that I was going to get the suitcases out of the basement. She simply couldn't wait to try on a few of her new outfits!

all ready for Cuba... all ready for Cuba... all ready for Cuba... all ready for Cuba... all ready for Cuba... all ready for Cuba...

  8. I have traveled all over the world and never knew Cuba was an option. For some reason I thought it was a blocked country, and I have no idea where I got that assumption. Looking forward to seeing your may be my next destination.
