Aaron and I were headed back home with both of the boys asleep in their car seats. I have been wanting to drive to a nearby town Bayou Le Batre, Alabama which is the seafood capitol of AL just to see the boats and stuff. Aaron thought let's go now while the boys are asleep and before we have to get the girls from school. We ended up going to that city and a little farther to Dauphin Island. It is actually only about 25 miles from our house!!
sweet feet in the sand
We all had a great time in the beautiful weather, sun, and sand. We can't believe this is February!! What a change from Indiana!
Aaron is so thoughtful. He picked up some shells for the girls, since they weren't with us.
We had sooo much fun in the sand! We didn't want the girls to miss out, so.... We went home, grabbed some shorts and culottes, and headed to....
As some of you know, I grew up in Hattiesburg, MS. We lived there until just before my 16th birthday, and then we moved to MO. The last time I was there, I was in 11th grade. For me it was "like coming home!" We went to the beach in Pascagoula, which is also about 25 miles from our house.
Aaron was taking a picture of the girls and I. Notice Justus in the background.
Yes, he did! He ran straight into the water. He LOVES water. He cries to get in the bathtub! I grabbed him and we were all laughing hysterically.
After this picture, Aaron wanted me to get on his back. I thought he just wanted a picture like that.
This is really what he wanted to do...
Dump me in the water.
