A Quick Easter Trip

On Thursday afternoon, right after school was over, Max and I drove eleven hours to Alabama to visit with family. Never mind that I was seven months pregnant. Or that I had (still have!) a doozy of a cold/cough.

Seeing family was worth it!!! Here are the highlights:

Walking around on Dauphin Island

Exploring the Bird Sanctuary at Dauphin Island
(actually saw some birds this time! It was a first!!)

Watching our dog Barney run and play on the beach

Celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday at the Original Oyster House in Mobile

The least blurry of the pictures our waiter took
(Do people not know how to operate an "old fashioned" point and shoot camera anymore!?)

We left to drive home on Easter Sunday. All in all, we had a great time and it was definitely worth the turn around trip. I can't believe that the next time I see them will be when the baby arrives this summer!!


  1. Looks so fun! Hope you are feeling better soon! Nothing is worse then being preggers and being sick! :(

  2. Dauphin Island is our favorite! We were actually talking about going this weekend, but I started my second job so couldn't ask off. Jealous you got to make it over there!

  3. Sounds like a very nice trip. I can't believe you're already 7 months along!

  4. What a beautiful day!! That Bird Sanctuary looks lovely!! And I agree with you on the point-and-shoot-camera thing!! :) PS I hope that you are feeling better Sarah!! xoxo

  5. I've been following you on twitter for a while but just joined the blog today :) I'm a special ed teacher, too--I feel your pain of multiple iep meetings and being sick at the same time! hope it went well!
