i'm here

I know I haven't been around much the last week or so; I have just been in a major funk and haven't felt like getting on and posting. This weather, geez, enough already.

We are set to go to Destin tonight, driving through the night and hopefully getting there bright and early in the morning. We know, we know, Ike. Oh Ike. How I wish you would get the picture that you are not welcome. But, well, we are going anyway even if we have to cut our 7 day vacation to only a few days. We will get our feet wet at least once, and I am not talking about in rain puddles, but in actual salty ocean water. Adler will play in the sand at least for a minute. We may be stuck in traffic coming back longer than our entire actual time on the beach. But we are going.

Wish us luck!!!

PS- never again will we book during hurricane season. We have already made plans to go in May. Full price is totally worth it to not deal with this!!

Have fun!! We're headed to Orange Beach in two weeks.

I agree with the full price thing. We missed Destin due to Faye. Bummer. Next year, we will sacrifice the great off-season rates to enjoy the sand and ocean without the threat of hurricanes.

Keeping you in my prayers... Hannah didn't give us any trouble in Ocean City... just one day of scattered showers, strong wind and awesome waves... I hope the same for y'all...

Loving you... missing you... and praying for you always, alwasy...

can't wait to hear about all the fun Adler had on his first beach trip! I am sorry that I will not be there to see it in person. I bet he loves it! Have fun, we will be hoping your trip does not get cut cause of Ike! See you soon!
