Boca Raton

For the Primerus legal conference this year, we were invited to Boca Raton, Florida.  It was a 3 day trip and we left Joanna in charge of the three oldest kids and left Lila with Heather.  The resort where we stayed was lovely and the weather was even better, especially after such a long winter.  Nathan had CLE classes in the morning and then in the afternoons we had activities.  The first day we went deep sea fishing together and the second day we took a Cuban cooking class.  The fishing was more exciting than I thought and we really enjoyed the fresh air and beautiful blue ocean.  I ended up getting sea sick, which was a bummer.  We caught some pretty cool fish though!  The cooking class was fun and we got a yummy lunch out of it.  Each evening we had cocktail parties to attend.  Our favorite one was a dinner cruise.  We boarded a giant yacht and slowly cruised down the intercoastal waterway.  We passed the most incredible mansions along the water!  Then, dinner was served buffet style on the boat.  It was quite romantic and very relaxing.  Coming home was definitely the hardest part of this trip!    Cincinnati was grey and rainy, plus the kids weren't too pleased with us leaving them, even though they  were very well taken care of while we were away.  Our only consolation is that we will be taking the entire family to Hilton Head as soon as school gets out.  Hooray for more beach time!
