What a weekend!

Wow! Did I have a fantastic weekend! It didn't start out to well, but it got better! Friday evening started with rain...lots of rain, over 6 inches of rain by Saturday morning! Where is the little boat when you need it? Ha!

After the rain ended, hubby and I took the Grandkids over to Bellingrath Gardens in Mobile, Alabama. Sounds like a long way, but from my house it's about 30 miles. So close but yet so far! We really do not get over there enough. This home dates back to around 1939 and the gardens are just beautiful. There was a huge antique car show over there this weekend too, so that made it even better. Taylor LOVED seeing all of the "Fast Cars" (that is what he calls Mustangs, Corvettes, and other cars in that category). Both of the kids enjoyed the winding paths and flowers in the garden, but I think they liked "Mirror Lake" the best of all. Although the Oriental Garden ran a very close 2nd until Alana slipped and did an almost perfect split on one of the paths! Ouch! Skinned her knee but was a very big girl with no tears. Of course, no road trip would be complete without McDonalds right around the corner!

Sunday was awesome as well. The company that I work for had the company picnic at Gass Light Park, so we went for a fun day of food, games, awards and a Minor League Baseball at Hank Aaron Stadium! The Mobile Bay Bears played the Carolina Mudcats and broke a loosing streak by beating them 5 - 0! It was a great game and Taylor caught a baseball while watching the teams practice before the game!

I won a Gift Certificate for a one night stay at the famous Battlehouse Hotel in Mobile. This is really great because I have been wanting to get over there and take some photos since it was restored last year but just haven't had the time. Now I know I will get photos! We haven't decided when we will go yet, but, most likely for our 30th wedding anniversary in August.

It was a great weekend and after all of the walking on Saturday and the activities on Sunday, I feel really old but it was well worth it to see the kids have so much fun and to have won my prize!

Hope you all had a great weekend too! Catch you all next time!
