Gulf Shores 2008

Well, we made it, had a great time, and are now back in good ole LA. I had wanted to make updates with new pictures daily while we were there, but my USB cord didn't make it in from eBay in time, so that was a bummer!! Anyway, we had a lot of fun. We spent two days at the beach and also went to the Exploreum in Mobile. ( THAT was a lot of fun. That place was the neatest thing! Any of you adults who have kids should check it out next time you are in that area. One of the employees there told us that the exhibits and IMAX shows change at least twice a year, so you don't see the same things over and over. It’s a great place to get your kids minds stimulated as my husband says. The kids were a real hoot the whole time. (CHALLENGING!!!!!) Ethan had NO fear of the water. He kept thinking he was a shark and just kept jumping in testing how far he should go. Tiffany, she loved the water but was a little apprehensive about how far was far enough, as for Madi, well, I'll just say she is our drama queen for sure! Little Miss Chloe Grace did so well. I was really proud of her. She just kinda hung out in daddy's little Snugli while we were are the Exploreum and slept through the IMAX. As far as the beach, she lay in her little tent and was a complete beach bum to say the least. When dipped her little toes in the water for the 1st time, she was ok with it at 1st, but when the water came up and hit her legs, she wasn't having that! The weather was really nice the whole time. It rained Friday night and I think that it drew the jelly fish in on Saturday. Madi and Jackson got stung, but were troopers about it. While we were out, we also went and seen Wall- E (cute movie) and ate at Lamberts. That is a neat little place to get some grub if you craving some good ole country cooking. Any who...I guess that's about it. We had a great time and I want to thank my sister in law for opening her home to us once again. I know this week was not the best week for you, but God had everything planned. We love you bunches Lori!
