Mini Vacation to Mobile

On Friday, we went to Dauphin Island and visited the Estuarium.

The kids were able to touch all kinds of preserved sea life.
They had a really fun kids area.

Deep sea diver Little Chef

Deep sea diver Lego Man

We were all able to hold a horseshoe crab and spider crab.

Next, we visited Ft. Gaines and then headed to downtown Mobile to stay the night. We enjoyed a stroll around downtown, dinner and live music on the patio, and a late night swim.

On Saturday, Lego Man's Boy Scout troop spent the night on the USS Alabama. In the picture above, he is pretending to get a good nights sleep in his middle cot (below deck) which was hanging from the ceiling. Dad slept on the cot below him while the girls and I slept in our nice, comfy hotel room......with air conditioning......and a pool!!!!

The kids on the main deck of the battleship.

The girls and I were able to tour the ship, submarine, and museum with the Boy Scouts from 4:30 until 8:00 p.m. At 8:00, all of the ladies were kicked off but not b/4 we had a yummy pizza dinner in the Ward Room. The guys continued to explore the ship after we left.

Moo modeling as always.
