A very big Thank You to our sweet friend, Ms. Sharon, who took Hope to the circus today. Hope took a 3 hour nap, and woke up talking about all of the animals and their tricks! She has enjoyed playing with her goodies from the circus, and really loves this clown nose! It sounds like they had a great time! We are all very lucky to have Ms. Sharon!

April's Mom, Ms. Susan is in town, so it was time for a new haircut for Hope (or past time!) Thanks for the new do, Ms. Susan!
April and Susan also took hope Roller Skating this week, and she has told anyone who would listen that she went. I will post pictures as soon as I get them from April. Actually, Hope and April have done a ton of fun stuff this summer, I need to play catch up and get all their fun things on here, too! I have no idea what we would do without April. She is a lifesaver!

We had to take our Lulu to Lulu's restaurant. It is Jimmy Buffett's sister's place, and was just a really fun spot. I have some really funny pictures of our Lulu dancing, but I have to get Zeb's Mommy's permission to post the pictures because he is in them too.
At Lulu's, we ran into Melissa, who was in my group at OMP the week John and I met. It was so fun to see her there. She said she was there when we first twinkled eyes at eachother!

I'm gonna catch something!
Digging the hole...
On the second Day, Hope started getting more used to the sand. She loved digging in "the hole" that had been dug in front of our tent. She was still pretty nervous around the waves, but she was definitely getting more comfortable.
We stayed in a house right on the beach. We were there with Mom, Dad, Jenn, Wes, Julia, Riley, Clara, Betty, Ken, Andrea, Zeke and Zeb. It was a great set up for all of us.

Friday, John, Hope and I loaded up and headed for Gulf Shores. We made it all the way to Hattiesburg, MS, where we stopped for the night. Hope was so excited about staying in a "Holy-Tel." We did a little swimming, went to bed, and woke up and headed back out. We drove to Dauphin Island to meet up with part of the crew. We spent a little time on the beach (Hope was not sure if she liked the ocean or not!) Then we rode the ferry over to Ft. Morgan and drove to Gulf Shores from there.

We just came home from our fabulous beach vacation! It was so fun and relaxing! It will be hard to return to the real world tomorrow morning! I will work on posting pictures...I am warning you that I took over 500 pictures, so this could take a while :-)
