Talent Show

The Bonneville Talent Show is tonight. Kaleaha has chosen to do her gymnastics floor routine. She was almost the last one to go but she made up her own routine and did a great job as usual! Mom and I left right after the talent show to spend the night in LR before her surgery tomorrow.

Home at last

We got home about 6:00 pm today. It was a LONG car trip! Not ready to do that again anytime soon. We came back home to 40 degree weather. We unloaded the car and started the washer! Ron and I both had to go to work on Thursday and I have to say I was not looking forward to it. Mom left this morning at 6:00 am headed to Salt Lake to stay with Tony and Barb. She'll be back on Sunday night and work for a couple of days before she has surgery in Little Rock. Can't update anymore. Too much stuff to catch up on!

Headed home

We got all loaded up this morning and we were ready to head out on our Pirate Cruise. We got to the Harbor a few minutes before 11:00. We were scheduled to leave at 11:30. Kaleaha decided that she wanted to have her hair braided while we waited. While the braiding was going on I walked down to check us in for the cruise. The lady was surprised to see us there. She told us that the cruise had been cancelled. The next one wasn't scheduled to leave until 2:00. We really didn't want to wait that long. We needed to be on the road way before then. We were all very bummed. The lady felt really bad and brought Krennan a bunch of pirate type gear as some compensation for not getting to go. We decided that we would have lunch and just leave town a little bit earlier than planned and head to Orange Beach, AL. It was a proposed stop on our way down, but we were in a hurry to get here. I remembered that we hadn't gone to the Gator Beach that we had seen online. It is tied to a restaurant on the main strip called Fudpuckers. We ate lunch and visited the Gator Beach. We fed some of the gators and then held a live one named Cupcake.

Our last full day in Destin

Well, we knew that time would fly once we got here, but WOW! It seems like we just pulled in. It was supposed to rain all day today so we didn't plan any beach time. When we got up it wasn't raining so we decided to hit the beach early trying to beat the rain. It was again too cold for me but the kids didn't notice it and Ron stayed up to his knees in the ocean the whole time we were there. The kids played in the sand and the water back and forth. You could tell they didn't care about the temperature at all. When we got back to the condo we cleaned up and went souvenir shopping and hit the outlet malls. We didn't have room for much but found a couple of cute things to bring back to remember our trip!
