Hello Miami, the adventure has begun.

We are in Miami.

Yes, we have finally started our adventure.

We flew for about 9 hours yesterday, London-Miami. Henry did so well and sat very still all the way. He watched 2 films and slept for 1 hour but the rest of the time he just sat and played.  Stephen and I watched 2 films each and took turns playing with Henry. He is such a great kid to travel with.

We arrived at MIA airport around 3pm and there were no queues or anything so we got to our hotel at about 4. It is a nice room with a little kitchen on South Beach.

All of us then walked and found a nice restaurant in the sunshine and had dinner. The people here are very friendly and love Henry. It doesn’t matter where we go people stop us and comment on how sweet he is. After dinner, we walked to the beach and Henry laid down in the sand and just smiled. He said this is like flour mum, I love it! He then ran into the water and played for about an hour. We got back to our room at about 7, this is 1 in the morning UK time. Henry fell asleep pretty quick and Stephen and I fell asleep at 9.

Unfortunately, our neighbours thought it was a great idea to party and play music at about 12.30 until they went out. And then again at 3 when they came home. Hopefully they won’t do that again tonight.

We have been to the beach today since early morning and having a little rest in the room now. In a minute, we are going out for a walk and then dinner and back to the beach for a play. It is really easy to get around here, we packed Henrys scooter so he just scoots around.

Henry just loves the water. It really warms my heart that he wants to be in it the whole time.

Tomorrow we get picked up and taken out on an airboat ride that will take us to an alligator sanctuary. There will be a little show with baby alligators and a show and tell. Hopefully it will be a nice day.

I love it so far, I love travelling and exploring with Henry and Stephen. Henrys face just lights up when he sees new exciting things and places. I can’t wait for the rest of the adventures!
