Wow...What fun!

Well, I've been back from vacation for over a week now and yet, the kingdom of blogdom has eluded my recognition. However, it's time for some of the addiction to take back some of my time and energy. So, here's a few words about our vacation:

Location: Gulf Shores, AL

Who: Michael, Mandy, Emma Grace & Sarah Beth
Michelle (Michael's sister) & Katelyn (niece)
Lavon (Michael's uncle) & Alex & Brady (cousins)

Details:
It was so much fun! Just watching Emma Grace & Katelyn play together is a lot of fun in itself. They are 8 months apart and just love each other to pieces! Everyone was smitten with Sarah Beth (who wouldn't be?) and the boys were so sweet and cute with her! I so wish we lived closer to everyone...maybe someday? *sigh*

Photo Session:
We took the opportunity of having all the girls together on the beach to get some sweet pictures of them. So, we got them these beautiful white "pillowcase" dresses with pink ribbons and pink monograms and some eyelet lace - totally feminine and beautiful!!! Then we took them out on the beach and snapped some photos. Of couse, they are the cutest girls ever which means that it's very hard to take a bad picture so they all turned out sooooooo stinkin' cute!


Dining:
We also ate very well...okay, so we ate a ton of food...and it was all really good! I highly recommend dining at Lambert's Cafe the next time you're in the Gulf Shores, AL area...or anywhere within the surrounding 2 hours drive! It's so worth it! The only word I have to sum it up is "Wow!" Lambert's is the home of the "Throwed" rolls and yes, they really do throw the rolls at you - but trust me, you catch them and gobble it up so that they'll continue throwing them at you! They are also continually walking around with "pass 'rounds" which are all you can eat black eyed peas, fried onion & potatos, fried okra, sorgum & apple butter. That's all on top of your ordered food. I ordered chicken fried steak (which I DO NOT order at most places b/c it's not real steak usually - and I'm not a fan of the "left overs") and it was literally wider than both of my hands put together and delicious doesn't begin to describe it. Michael ordered the roast beef and ate til he was full and had enough left over to make two huge sandwiches for lunch the following day. Michelle had the chicken & dumplings and it was the one thing in the restaurant that was not good. So, don't get the chicken and dumplings! I've never had home cooking that good away from home - it was delicious!!!!

Conclusion:
I'd like to live on vacation! *grin*
