Before I forget...

Owen's 3P Spring Program

Anna Clare is doing theater camp this week. When I asked her a few weeks ago if she was interested, she replied with a completely serious, "I don't think I need to do theater camp. You always say I'm full of drama." Without skipping a beat she said, "Then again, my initials are ACT so maybe I should." They are doing a little play for the parents on Friday to end the week and she is playing the roles of Barbie and Blue Butterfinger Princess. I have a feeling it will be a real treat.

Also, I learned today that you should always meet a friend at the movies. You never know when you might fall asleep and need someone to watch your child. Was Winnie the Pooh a cute movie? No will have to ask my four-year-old. Pregnancy = Narcolepsy. Thanks, KKD for keeping an eye on her!

We're Home!

We left last Friday afternoon on a little week long adventure. We spent Friday night with G.G. and all day Saturday at the Escatawpa River with cousins, aunts, and uncles. We had such a fun day and I of course, took no pictures.

We drove over to Mississippi and spent Saturday night, Sunday, and Sunday night with Grandaddy (Steve's dad). pictures. But Grandaddy got some good ones, so I will snag some from him.

Monday, the 4th, we went back to G.G.'s and spent the day and night with her. Steve quickly became quite efficient at loading and unloading the truck.

Tuesday we checked in at Perdido Beach Resort for Steve's continuing education conference. That's where all the pictures from this post are taken. Is anyone else tired of cell phone pictures? I know I am. I did take lots of pictures while we were there but have yet to upload any pictures at all since May them.

It's always a fun few days even though he is in classes all day. The girls attack him as soon as he gets out in the afternoons and we hit the beach and the pool until nearly dark. Owen was thrilled that she got to "skip a nap" each day so late afternoons found her like this if she sat still long enough...

I was so glad that Darby and her sweet children came over to the resort pool one day to play and then we went with them the next day to their community pool in Orange Beach. It was so nice for the kids to have playmates and for me to have someone to visit with!

Steve finished his classes at lunch today so we packed up and headed home, thankful for a really fun, memory-filled, safe holiday week. I don't think we've ever been gone for a whole week! It was great, but it's so nice to be home sweet home!

Today I found this...

all at 50% off! I went to Bellamia today to get a baby shower gift for my sweet little niece, Emma Scott, whom we are expecting in September. All their spring and summer stuff is 50% off today and tomorrow and I happened upon these 3 little matching outfits for my crew. I love the little green whales! With an 8 year age difference between the oldest and youngest, I won't be able to dress them alike hardly ever if at all. So I snatched them up. For next summer of course. I love a good deal! Have a safe and happy 4th and God Bless America!
