Memorial Day Fun

Here's what happened over the weekend. Cause I know your life will not be complete until I tell you about our non-excitement...

um. yeah.

Friday - packed way too much and left 2 hours later than planned. It's 6 hours from our house to Dauphin Island. That's a LONG way with a VERY! EXCITED! 6 year-old and a 4 month-old brea$tfed baby. We made it. Mommy needed a wheel barrel to carry her bo0bies upstairs, but it was ok. 3 am before we got to bed. But only because we ate with brother-in-law and wife and then spent $200! at W-M before leaving the "mainland."

How do you like the way I throw words around like "mainland?"

Saturday - slept a little late, but not too much. Because there was much sand to be rubbed into our cracks and jellyfish to sting Stinkerbell's hand and big waves to ruin the SeaDoo riding.

Sunday - we observed the Lord's day of rest by sleeping very late and then taking a 2 hour nap. We didn't load the tent, folding chairs, beach chairs, cooler, car seat carrier, diaper bag, sunblocks, hats, swimshoes, towels, sunglasses, ball caps, diapers, wipes, drinks, snacks, flippers, sand toys, etc. into the back of the Pimped Out Mamamobile. Instead, we stayed at the pool at the condo and swam. Stinkerbell graduated from wearing her ski vest constantly to swimming without it and playing in her flippers, which kept her afloat and gave her confidence to swim the length of the pool. Yes, even in the deep end.

Monday - we washed the sheets and towels and cleaned up after our nasty selves and rushed to make it to the ferry at 2:00. The ferry takes you across Mobile Bay to Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area. Just North of Gulf Shores is Foley and the outlet malls. We didn't shop. The HORROR OF IT ALL. But we did eat here. We were home by 11pm. Which allowed me to pack clothes for The Mighty Hunter's one-night trip to Tampa and get in bed by 12:30.

Now you can sleep peacefully tonight.

You're quite welcome.

How did I know that link was to Lamberts?!?

I hope you waved really hard at exit 15 on I-65 when you drove by. I waved at you!
