Jami's 25th Birthday!

Posted by PicasaOne of my great friends Jami turned 25 on June 25th. We started our evening with a surprise birthday dinner at Pablo's Mexican restaurant at Lee Branch. While we were there we had a delicious dinner and a very yummy birthday cake. Afterwards we went down below the restaurant to a bar called The Back Nine. One of Jami's, and mine, favorite bands was playing. They are called Deputy 5. They play a little country, rock, and a little something for everyone! We spent the evening dancing the night away! Kevin and I had a Wonderful time and I KNOW Jami did too! Happy 25th Birthday girl! Glad you had fun and that I was there to share in it with you! Love!

A Little Mud on the Tires

About a month ago we went to a mud bog out in Eclectic. Its "out there" believe me.

Not even 30 minutes into being there Daniel D got his 4-wheeler stuck. Kevin was more than happy to help him out. Boys will be boys I guess (even if they are 26).

This was a vehicle that people were actually "muddin" with. It was a minivan that someone had cut the end off of and put mud tires on it! It was classic! Gotta love it!

Don't think that I'm one of those wives who always just hangs on and enjoys the ride. I enjoy being the driver every now and then too! =)
"And then with a little luck, we might just get stuck."

How cute was this little boy?! After most everyone was done playing in the mud, this little boy pulled out his John Deere truck and was going through all the mud holes too! It was too precious.

Nothing like getting a little mud on the tires.

After all the fun we had, they held a concert. We saw Rhett Atkins, Ashton Shepard, and Matt Steelewell. Needless to say, I think we will be back.

Beach Trip 6/9/10-6/13/10

I know I'm behind on my posts and I'm making up for that today. On 6.9.10 we left for the beach with 2 other couples: Steve and Laura; and Daniel (Spears) and Meredith. Kevin's parents were nice enough to let us stay at their house on the bay side of Orange Beach. While we were enjoying our long weekend at the beach there was hardly any oil. We swam in the Gulf every day. There was no smell, or taste, or sheen to the water. Very pretty.
(That is seaweed that you see in the sand, not oil)

We spent our days on the beach, for about 7-8 hours each day. The boys were learning to skim board and the girls reading magazines and chatting. We also threw the football, my favorite, and relaxed in our chairs listening to music. A nice little vacation, not far from home.

While laying out on the beach a banner flew overhead, you know the ones that the planes are always advertising with, and that is what it said! I completely agree! There was one every day that we were there with a new day on it each time. At this time it was 54 days and still nothing done about the oil spill.

This is the "A team" storming the beach. Or at least that's what it looks like to me. haha!

This was our first night out at the FloraBama. (From left to right: Spears, Meredith, Laura, Steve and Kevin and I)

Our second night out we had dinner at Guy Harveys, yum, and hung out at the Wharf. We rode the Ferris wheel and the girls had our picture taken with "Sharky." BTW I didn't realize that I was a little leary of heights until I was at the top of the Ferris wheel. Exciting but nerve racking too. =0) On our third night we just spent more time on the beach and then came in and grilled out and hung out at the house for the evening. The beach takes alot of you, believe it or not.
On our final morning at the beach the oil started to come in. This is a tar ball that I picked up. (I know I prob shouldn't have touched it, but it was fine) It was very pliable and weird. It started to creep into the bay, as you can see. All under the dock is oil. Its very sad, but crews were and are doing everything they can to keep the beaches clean. We still had a fabulous time while we were there!!
