Alabama trip

Soleil, River, and I flew over to Mobile to spend a week with Robbie's parents. Jess and the boys drove over and got to spend some time with us too! We had a great time. The kids got to spend hours swimming in the pool, shoot off fireworks, and go for a hike in the woods. We all went out to the beach at Gulf Shores. River napped under the umbrella while the kids played in the waves. Soleil wasn't too sure about the waves until we turned it into a jumping game. It was fun until a wave took both her and I out. I still have a scar on my knee to show for it! I was trying to keep my daughter above water! We went to eat at Lulu's restaurant. (She is Jummy Buffet's sister.) To this day Soleil likes to pretend we are going to the beach and stopping to eat at Lulu's. I guess it left an impression on her.

It was nice spending some relaxing time with Nana and PawPaw. It was PawPaw's first time to meet River. They bonded quickly and I was so grateful for River and PawPaw's early morning conversations. When River would wake up around 6:30, I would take him out to the porch with PawPaw and head back to sleep and cuddling with Soleil. I think Soleil enjoyed River's time with PawPaw too since she had Mommy all to herself. Sure wish his parents lived closer...

Sorry PawPaw...somehow we didn't get any pics with you and River together!
