Smiles all around!
We have returned from our trip to Alabama. Most of us had never been there and, I think it is safe to say, we all had a wonderful time! It was much warmer there than here at home. Imagine that. When we visited one of the state parks(Tannehill) down there, the girls sighed and said they sure wished they could put their feet in the water... and I figured, well, why not? It was 45* and that seemed rather springlike to us. So in they went. And I'd just like to say for the record- not a sniffle has been heard and the water exploration happened days ago. I whispered to Bill that I didn't figure they'd last very long. I gave Eva 10 minutes- 'cause she's a duck and Bekah 2 minutes- 'cause she really doesn't like the cold. 30 minutes later, I was having to coax them out. I'll say it again. What a wonderful time we all had.
I am too tired to get much done, today. Just spending the day loafing and sleeping. Trips will do that to you, but my mental batteries have been all charged up and I am full of ideas of things that I would like to get done as soon as my old body catches up with my old brain!

Hurray! You're home, safe and sound!

And where were those studly men of the family during that picture-snapping event?!? A little chill on the feet has never stopped a Midwestern woman, has it!

Lots of love and hugs....

They look like they are having a wonderful time! I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and the weather was nice for your trip. I'm looking forward to seeing what your re-charged brain comes up with in the next while. =)

Good memories for all. Kids always surprise you - staying in the water longer than you thought and getting done fast what you thought would entertain them for hours ... hmmm, come to think of it - quilters are like that too! LOL!
