This photo shows Bumblebee's first "catch". We got the kids rods and reels and let them fish off the pier in the back of the house. Double A was actually quite good at casting. Bumblebee didn't cast as well but he did get the only catch of the trip...an oyster! We all agreed it was much harder to catch an oyster than a fish! :)
This is July Fourth and the "big" fireworks had not started yet but some individuals were setting off thier own. Bumblebee did not want me to miss a single one so he grabbed my neck and kept pointing me in the right direction.
This photo turned out surprisingly well considering I took it in the pitch dark and I couldn't even see that Tammi wasn't there! Sorry Tammi! Thank goodness for the red eye pre flash thing which got everyone to look and allowed me a split second to line it up.
We had a nice time but had to leave Saturday July 5th to begin our long trek home. We stayed somewhere in Mississippi that night and finished the trip on Sunday. The sad part about it is that Saturday the 5th was our 11th anniversary and we spent it driving, stopping every 30 minutes to let Bumblebee pee (once on the side of the road) and spending about 9 hours in some random, but very nice, hotel in the middle of nowhere Mississippi. We did treat ourselves (and the kids) to dinner at Crescent City Grill in Hattiesburg on our way through town. And note to ourselves...don't stop at Lambert's "Home of the Throwed Roll" on Sunday around lunchtime. The wait was almost 2 hours and when we decided not to wait the kids were distraught over the fact we could not eat in a restaurant where they actually throw food at you. There's always next trip...or pretty much any meal at home!
