Dreaming....

We've got it bad over here...
Yep, cabin fever has hit our house in a big way and we are COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS until we can get out of the frozen tundra and head south.  
Way, way south...

In fact, in the very, very near future we will be getting out of Minnesota and hopping on a plane headed here...
Specifically, in that building on the southern tip of the island, the big one!!  

And we can't wait!  
We've actually had a beautiful, sunny week but it's still cold and there's plenty of snow on the ground!  In fact, we're on like day 85 or something of 5 or more inches of snow on the ground.  That's no good.  
We need a change of pace in a big way and I'm so, so thankful we've got it coming!!
Only some time on the water, in the sun and on a beach can help us now... 

We're getting Ava ready for the big trip too.  
We're telling her tales of a place where "no coats, no hats and no snowsuits need to be worn."  We're not sure if she believes us yet, but she sure is intrigued!  
I have a feeling she's going to LOVE it down south...At least as much as her Mommy and Daddy do.  

It's this time of year when we have to repeatedly ask ourselves...
Why do we live here again???

I guess so we always have a warm place to dream about :) 
The countdown is officially on...

Anticipation is at least 1/2 the fun of going!

Do you know how many "stations" I could set up there?? Maybe even apply for some jobs! We could take daily field trips to explore and study the geomorphic coastal features and collect sediment samples. Aren't you glad I'm not going to be there to ruin your vacation with research? But seriously, could you apply for some jobs for me while you're there??? :)
