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!

What a fun time you all have had! I agree, though, after a week I'd be ready to be home again! Ya'll did the same thing with Steve's conference that Tracy and the boys do with my FBLA stuff...they have fun while I'm in meetings! However, Tracy's dad has a business trip in August that's going to be in St. Augustine, and we're all going with him. I'm looking forward to playing while somebody else is in meetings!
