Bayou La Batre

Tonight we stopped by the little outlook in Bayou La Batre where Chris proposed to watch the sunset over the water.

While we were waiting for sunset, Chris decided that he wanted to throw his cast net under the bridge and see what he could find.

He didn't catch anything worth keeping, but he did manage to snag this little puffer fish.  Chris let me grab a quick picture before we put him back.  I love how they "puff" themselves up.

Dauphin Island

We spent the day at the beach today with the kids.  They had a great time playing in the sand, building sand castles and burying each other.  It was fun to watch them enjoying themselves.

Planting Flowers

Chris and I spent a little time in the front yard to help mom plant some fall flowers in front of the house.  I love Mums in the fall!

We even got the kids to help us clean up the mess from the Magnolia tree!  Of course, I think Chris bribed them with the promise of some cash at the end of the day.  But they were hard-working little helpers and they did a great job!

Driving to Alabama

Chris and I left for Alabama today to visit family.  Thankfully the drive was a lot easier than the one we made last January.  We are looking forward to seeing family and enjoying a much needed vacation.  I will keep you posted on our adventures!
