The next morning we all decided to go swimming...it was really nice. This place is bayside so the waves weren't too bad. It was such a gorgeous day and we all enjoyed it. My husband met two other fellas who were from Alabama and spent some time talking with them and crabbing with the boys. After showers we headed over to Crabs We Gott em and if u haven't eaten there, I suggest u try it. The food is fantastic, the service is great and it's right on the gulf. After stuffing ourselves Nikki decided she wanted a dessert called Death by Chocolate so we ordered that and left. Now for more shopping at the mall across the street. We found a nice area to sit and listen to a band called the Johanssons on the boardwalk. They were really good, and watching the moon come up over the gulf was so nice. Around 8:30 we decided to head back and let the kids have some beach time before bed. Dick went to bed early but I didn't get to sleep til 2:30. The next morning was spent just cooking breakfast and packing up to head home since 3 of the kids had to be in school the next day.
We enjoyed the company of these wonderful young folks so much! Each one is such a blessing and it was nice to have them all together...something that I don't know if we'll be able to do again so I was extra thankful for this weekend. They each have a full life and busy schedule...Ry and Shane are seniors so they will be off to college next year, Nikki is in the 10th and Lizzie is in the 9th grade. It's hard to realize they have grown up so quickly but young adults they are. I thank Heavenly Father every day for them and our other grandchildren...Aryn (18), Miles (16), Erran (19), Allison (13) and Kayla (16). All these wonderful young folks hold a special place in our hearts and lives. We are so proud of them all!
I'm fairly new to blogging so I hope to add our pictures of the trip. It's been a long time since my last post and I hope to change that from now on. I enjoy all the blogs I follow and I realize how nice it is to "hear" from them every day so I will make the effort to post more often...it won't be every day because we aren't on the road that often but hopefully at least every week.
