It has been too long since posting here. Of course the time has been packed with activities. This is just a very short few words and couple of stunning pictures to give you some idea of what we have been doing with ourselves these few months.
First of all, the kids and I went down to the coast of Alabama for a very special occasion. Our son got married weekend before last on the beach of Gulf State Park and it was lovely. Just as thrilling as a wedding was the fact that my children have never seen the ocean before. Nor had any of us ever vacationed that close to the beach. On the down side, we had to leave Corvette Man to tend to the animals. Unfortunately for him, he came down with our daughters horrible cold while we were gone. It is terrible to be sick and have to drag yourself out of bed to feed. We missed him all the same. He explained he was best left at home sick than going in that condition, though.
Anyway, on to a few of our favorite pictures…
We got to feel the sand between our toes.
Also with us were my two mom’s. We had a great time visiting.
We also saw some unusual animals… at least as far as we are concerned.
And of course we had to drench ourselves in the salty water of the gulf. The water was warm. The kids discovered a stinging shock when they opened their eyes under the water. Not at all like fresh water or swimming pools.
Then of course, we have the main attraction.
The weather was amazing and pleasant. It was the experience of a lifetime for us all.
We didn’t really want to return from this beautiful piece of heaven. Tell me about your trip this summer. I’d love to hear about it.
