Orange Beach, AL 2010

We spent a week at the beach in June> My dear friend, Nikki, got married on the 26th and I was so happy to be a part of her special day! Shannon and Betsy came from Tuscaloosa. Nikki was a beautiful was a perfect day!

cake time

the cake was beautiful

the ceremony was at the Gulf Shores State Park and was beautiful but HOT!!!!!

Me and Adella

waiting on ceremony to start
During the ceremony a guy driving a tractor pulling port-a-pottys drove right by between the ceremony and the ocean. It was hillarious! The preacher stopped the ceremony and we all waved to the tractor driver. He never even saw us! I'm so glad Nikki could laugh about it!

Some pics from our wonderful week

hunting sand crabs is one of our favorite things to do
Sydney built "Fuzzy" and John Evan built "Buster"

Alligator Alley is also a favorite

There was a fountain at Phoenix 6 where we stayed and the kids had to throw pennies in it everytime we got home from somewhere.

We didn't have many problems with the oil. The water and sand were pretty clear most of the time-expect one night the oil was REAL bad. It was SO sad.

may 2010 happenings

I am so excited about being back in the blogger world. I have loved reading other people's blogs but have slacked on my own. We have been having some major computer problems but luckily we just got a lap top and I love it! So, I just downloaded about 300 pics. Here is what has been going on for the month of May.
My dear sweet friend Nikki asked me to be in her wedding. I was so excited until someone told me I was too old to be in a wedding! HaHa I showed them! We went to Sips N Strokes one night for a fun girl's night.The wedding was on June 26th in Gulf Shores and that will be a post all by itself! Birthday party for friends Emma and Jackson. My friend, Christy, and her mom made this amazing cake.

My sweet little girl graduated from Kindergarten. What an emotional day! I am so proud of her! She had a great year and has grown so much. This is from a graduation party at her friend, Beth's, house.

after graduation we ate at IHOP (her choice)with friends and family and then went to see Shrek
