1: Mims Whim | Our Vacation Home in Gulf Shores Alabama July 2nd - 16th 2011
3: Fort Morgan 2011 | At first Joey didn't like to go anywhere near the ocean. He said" too big, I can't swim". After a week he sat down with me and suddenly realized how much fun the ocean can be. . So he started riding the waves.
4: We spent the day at the besch. Joey was really scared of the Fireworks and refused to leave teh house at night. He turned the TV on high and watched "Thomas the Train" He just wanted to cuddle with Mommy and said"bummert" Dad, Timmy & Eli Fireworks at the beach

11: Soaking up the sun!
13: Life's a Beach At the beach, life’s different. Time doesn’t move, Waves crash the ocean front, Kissing my feet. Sea glass glistens in the sun, The warm air dances around me Giving a new start to the world. The sand tingles under my feet Like being tickled by love. Laying on the beach shore, Tanning the day away. The tans may fade, But memories Never do. For years we had wanted to rent a house by the beach. It took us a while to come across Fort Morgan/Alabama. There is nothing but white sandy beaches, houses and pure nature. the nearest Walmart is 20 miles awa, so are the restaurants. Two weeks of peace and quiet, building sand castles with the kids, swimming and doing nothing.....just what we needed after a busy year.
14: Swimming makes us tired
15: I refuse to go outside without my shades. Look at me now - big white imprint on my face. Silly, silly, absolutely matches my personality.
16: 3 | We had a great day with cake and a treaure hunt after dark. We hid a treasure chest full of flashlights and treasure maps that led us all the way to the beach where we found golden coins ans candy.
17: Happy Birthday Joey!
19: Dolphin Cruise on a glass bottom boat | We saw a mother dolphin and her baby swim in the ocean. While nobody was looking, we secretly threw a "message in a bottle" into the ocean. So far we haven't heard from anyone but we are checking our email daily. Let's hope someone found our treasure map.
