Beach Trip!

Daddy's BIG catch!

Having fun on the Merry-go-round

This past weekend, our family plus my in-laws went to Ft. Morgan for a long weekend. We had a really good time. The weather stayed overcast the whole time and we had some afternoon showers. I didn't mind b/c I didn't have to wrestle 3 wiggle toddlers every day to put sunblock on them and we didn't sweat buckets. Having no sun didn't bother me either. Since having children, I could really care less if I have a tan or not. The kids don't mind my pasty white legs!!

All 3 of the kids LOVED the ocean. C loved it the most. We had to wrestle him out of the water every day. He also got to go fishing with daddy and PaPa and acted like such a big boy. M loved the pool the best and took off swimming on her own with her swim floaties and ring float. She finally learned to kick her legs to propel her forward in the water. Z enjoyed playing in the sand the most. She likes the ocean and the pool but only if she was in someone's arms.

On Sunday, the weather was really yucky so we decided to go and ride the go-carts in Gulf Shores. We all (including MiMi and PaPa) had a blast riding them. The kids screamed "Weeeeee" the whole time and asked for "More" as soon as we got out of the go-carts. The rest of the day was spent at the condo as the kids all came down with a nasty cold.

Oh! On the way to the condo the first day, Z said the cutest thing. The sun was shining really bad in our eyes and she sits in the middle carseat. After a few very sunny minutes, she said, "Mommy, turn the light off!".
