July 14, 1951 - I was born - so - here we are - 59 years later and Charlie and I took 3 of our 5 grandchildren to Orange Beach. I only wish Ada could have been with us. John, too, but when he's older.
We had a wonderful time.
Sarah and Kate were with us through Saturday and Mary Ann was with us the whole time.
They were too adorable, the children.
Take a look....
(Sarah took all of these pictures)
At the Gulf - or Perdido Pass
And behind our condominium - on the bay/canal
The group - after a great seafood dinner - Charlie is the photographer
And for dessert - Daylight Donut Shop - So Good!
And of course, the Pool
The kids did amazingly well - away from their parents - real troopers.
The ride home became a test of endurance for all of us - around about, hmmmm, 2 hours from home.
We left Orange Beach at 9:30 - had to drop the key off in Gulf Shores -
so officially were leaving the beach at 10:00. Took Mary Ann home 2 hours later in Evergreen. Ate lunch. Visited Aunt Mary and Cousin Melissa for about one hour.
Left Evergreen at 2:00. Ate Dinner north of Birmingham at 5:00-6:00.
Arrived home at 7:45.
They were so glad to see their Mom who was waiting at our house. She was so glad to see them.
And she took them home to Steve who was, I think, doing a little "tidying up" around the house.
That's what I heard Ann say. :-)
