I am a child of the King, wife to the best husband in the world, mom of four wonderful children and one great daughter-in-law, Nana to the three cutest little boys and one beautiful little girl. We have a wonderful life. Who ever would have thought that I could have all of this.
While we had a great time at Dauphin Island, we did have one major blip occur on the last night we were there. Long story short, after renting jet skis for several hours, Jenny rode one of them back to the other end of the island to the rental place. After an hour, she hadn't shown up. We called the police who in turn called the Coast Guard and had a boat in the water searching for her immediately. She didn't have her phone with her, we had it. After three hours of praying, waiting and crying (and it was pitch dark) we received this text on her phone.
September is the time of year we like to take our vacation to Dauphin Island. We get the fall rates for the house we rent and there's not the crowd at the island like during the summer. Dauphin Island is NOT the place to go if you like to have lots of activities and shopping, not even in the summer season. This little island is quiet, has few activities, little shopping and does have several good restaurants. We love it because there isn't much to do. We like to just hang out at the beach and our house. We even cook most meals at the house so we don't have to leave. So relaxing.
The Junk Ranch is an amazing junk show that happens in this area (within an hours drive) twice a year and we, Karen, Becky, Jenny and I, are going to be a vendor there. We are really excited and think this is going to be just awesome. We were vendors there about a year ago and learned a lot about doing a show like not taking simply everything you have. The show has really grown in the last couple of years with lots more vendors and tons more shoppers. Of course I will have to do a little shopping myself. Here is a sneak peek at what we are bringing.
I thought I would just post some sweetness today. Miss LilyAnn is growing so fast and getting so mobile it is amazing. She now has two teeth, will be 6 months old next week and is just about to crawl. She smiles all the time and of course I think she is just adorable. She will be one healthy little lady as she has started eating "baby food" which is fresh veggies straight from her parents garden.
