This wasn't the first time we had left Brett (We had left him for a night here and there a few times) but this was the longest for sure- 3 nights and 4 days! Fortunately I think he is a lot easier for the Grandparents to handle now that he is a full fledged toddler. GULP! He eats regular food, goes to sleep like a champ and as long as he is outside, this kid is a breeze. So, knowing this, we boarded our flight and headed to Islamorada, Florida Keys and a little place called the Cheeca Lodge and Spa.
I found an AMAZING deal for this swanky spot on LuxuryLink.com. If you have never visited this site I highly reccomend doing so. It is kind of like ebay for vacations, you can bid on great vacation packages all over the world or you can choose to "buy it now" if you are in a hurry. We saved a lot of money doing this instead of booking thru the hotel site.
Needless to say, the Cheeca lodge met and exceeded our expectations! We were greeted with free champagne in complimentary take home glasses, and our room had a fruit bowl and bottle of wine. I felt like we were on a 2nd honeymoon!
