Gulf Shores Trip

We left on Sunday July 6th at around 11am and headed towards the beach. The whole family met up at Hattiesburg Mississippi and stayed at a hotel Sunday night. Monday morning we set off to Gulf Shores. There were 15 people in that is alot, especially when 7 are kids ages 6 and under. We had a great time though. We (the girls) layed out on the beach some, the kids played in the sand and played in the water (although they didn't like the stinging of the jellyfish!). We had 2 condos between the 4 families. We all just had a great time hanging out with each other. The kids also loved the kiddy pool, so we spent alot of time there as well. During the week we ate at "The Hangout", "Sea-n-Suds", and "Cottons". We also went to the nearby track and had a good time riding the go carts. I think we all had a fun time and thankfully the kids got along good....most of the time!! HA HA!!!
Below is a slide show of the week, but here are some more of my favorite pics!!

June `08

I have been HORRIBLE about updating my blog this summer, so now I'm trying to catch up.
The month of June was a busy month for us. We celebrated Brady's birthday party at the first of the month, then we went to Branson (everyone except Jackson--he stayed w/my parents) for a couple of days. We went shopping and spent a rainy day a Silver Dollar City. We also met up with my friends Wendy and Celeste and their families at Branson Landing to eat and let the kids hang out. They were all so cute!! We had a great time with them.
On the 9th, Scott and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. I can't believe it has been 7 years. In the 7 years I have been through graduate school, built a house (then moved out of it less than 2 years later), had 3 children, Scott was hospitalized with Menigitis, Brady was hospitalized with croup and had to have 2 surgeries, and we have moved 3 times. I love you boo--thank you for all you do for me and the kids!!!
At the end of the month we met up w/my whole family at the lake house. We ate alot and enjoyed some fun on the water. We had a great time with all the family.
I also want to mention that my new blog template was set up by my good friend Anita. She also has a website where she can change your templates as well as doing stationary things. Check her website out....A Piece of Pope.
