The Beach and Old friends

Orange Beach, Perdido Pass, LuLus....Little Man's actual birthday which we celebrated for 2 weeks....


Our friends that were our neighbors when Baby Girl was born were there from Indiana and we hung out on the beach drinking Gilligan's Islands and eating homemade Hummus made by Papa Bear, tanning and catching up! The kids had a blast and so did the Mom's. Making new memories and remembering old ones!

We spent the nights at mt Mom's- Gran Gran's -and got to see her and Gramps too. She even joined us at the beach when my sis and neice joined us as well.
Instead of making a bunch of posts about my wonderful beach trip, I made a movie slide show of the great pictures.

There is 4 minutes of the best pictures to one of my favorite songs by BonJovi.....

I love it, but if you are not a Jovi fan, mute it.......ummm...Dull, that may be you.
