Sunset on Pensacola Beach

Saturday, April 7, 2012

Thanks for the memories

What a wonderful week!  After Dave left Saturday evening (wish he could stay longer) Betty and Kirk came in the following day.  And the whirlwind of fun began.  We did the beach and ate at Flounders on the beach - then walked the boardwalk.
This is one of Betty's new friends on the boardwalk on Pensacola Beach.
Isn't this a great picture of Kirk and Betty?  Tuesday Kris flew in and while Betty and Kirk did the beach, Dad and I picked up Kris from the airport.  Right straight to the beach to grab a bite for lunch we went.
Wednesday all four of us went to Alabama to visit Bellengrath's Gardens.  We visited acres of beautiful gardens but what is that?  An umbrella?  YES!!  It rained the whole time we were there - about two hours of walking but we were prepared.  We also went through the Bellengraph house built in the early 1900's and if you like expensive porcelain, you will love this tour!   Afterwards, off to Fairhope to visit their quaint shops.   When home, we enjoyed one of our shrimp boils - fresh shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn on the cob.  Yummy!
And speaking of yummy - Kris turned me onto baked oysters.

We enjoyed these three different times during Kris's visit.
Kris and I got to enjoy two days of sun on the beach along with many other spring breakers.  Easter week-end + Spring Break + warm weather = busy beaches. 
And then it was time.   Boo-hoo......
Kris, our last guest was packing to go home.
So we took Kris to the airport this morning and now the house is too, too quiet.  But we had three 1/2 weeks of wonderful, incredible, memorable time with friends and family.   Thank you all so much for the memories.   We love you all!
Oh, and I will leave you with a picture of Mom and Dad this afternoon after three 1/2 weeks of fun and frolic.  Hee-hee....  They are just kidding about being this tired.  After all, Dad and I are off to the baseball game tomorrow.
Funny Mom and Dad!!
