Monday, we took my mom to see the sights. Ike was so excited that she was along because the rest of us have seen everything and it was nice to have someone excited about seeing new things. We all had a blast showing her around. It was the best tour ever because Ike and Aunt Iris were our chauffer service. They would drive us right up to the monuments and then come back to pick us up. Tuesday, we ate all day. This may seem like a joke but we did. We got up ate breakfast, and then took showers to go to lunch. At least that is how it felt this maybe the reason I gained 7 pounds! In the middle of breakfast and lunch Ike and I had our fight for the trip. We always have to be sure to get one of those in sometime. I would like to say it was over something meaningful…however that is not the case. We fought because I refused to down size my luggage for the beach trip we were about to take. Since there was 7 of us going in one vehicle we were told to bring one small bag a piece. I didn’t want to. Period. Poor Ike has to deal with me. I eventually did many tears later. I blame fertility drugs.
After lunch we went to Ms. Lynn’s house for supper (eating again). We had northern BBQ and crabs. I actually really liked the crabs…but still feel they are a lot of work for very little meat. BUT the experience and social aspect is totally worth it!!
My mom loves Alabama, so she was excited they were beside each other.
Next up…the beach trip!
