Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key, FL

We stayed in Hawk's Cay for a few days in July and loved it. They have a great pool for the kids and a lagoon where you can rent kayaks that provides hours of fun.

They have a lot of great activities for kids throughout the day and dolphins on site.

It was close enough to Key West that we drove down for dinner at Antonia's one night... great Italian food.

Miami, Keys and cruise in the Caribbean.

We arrived in Miami a few days ago with the girls. We stayed a couple of nights in Duck Key at Hawks Cay resort (review coming soon) and headed out of the Port of Miami on Norwegian Epic (review coming soon). We will have many stories and pics soon. Stay tuned...

Rancho Mirage, CA

We took the girls to the Rancho Las Palmas resort in Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage for a couple of days during spring break. It is a really great resort, especially with kids. The lazy river was their favorite part -- ours was that kids under 12 eat for free. Seriously! Who does that anymore? Now, we did skip their Easter brunch there because it was outrageously expensive and we decided to check out The River (the outdoor mall across the street). It's hard to beat The Cheesecake Factory... yummy! If you are visiting Palm Springs with kids... consider Rancho Las Palmas... it is so fun!
Here's a tip from our daughter's teacher, Mrs. Warner that we followed: Eat at D'Carlos Italian Cafe near the resort... shhhh! Don't tell the tourists -- it's a secret and it is wonderful. The owner is really cute, too.
Also, make sure you stop by The Living Desert... that was really fun, too.
