A Forey 4th of July weekend (Part Two)

Saturday morning Ryan's Aunt Lori and cousin Courtney showed up to join in the fun. We spent the whole day visiting and doing a little shopping. Ryan cooked us his gourmet "Bobby Flavor Flay" meal that was delicious!

We really didn't have any plans, so Sunday we decided to drive to Dauphine Island (near Mobile, AL) to check out the beach house Rick & Patti rented for their visit in August. After that we decided we could do some more shopping and hit up the local Flea Market, where I have to say...Kaylon and Kolbie scored in the "we really don't need this but its so cheap" toy department :) Aunt Lori and Kolbie made out with the best deal and got a free toy. Probably because they are so cute. Needless to say, the kids were happy campers!

We were all starving by the time we left, so we decided to stop in at Felix's Seafood Restaurant on Mobile Bay, where half of us decided to order the Shrimp and Girts and were in no way disappointed. I think every one except me ordered the Macaroni and Cheese, Cheese, Cheese as their side dish. Yes...You want some! Order both!! :)

Ocean Springs decided to have their fireworks display on Sunday night, and we barely made it to the beach on time and the kids didn't last long before they fell asleep. (No my daughter is not asleep playing in the sand...she is allergic to the camera flash...its impossible!)

The morning of the 4th, we decided we would try out the Champagne Brunch at The Buffet inside the Beau Rivage. Long story short, there were no crab legs so when everyone comes back to visit, we are headed there again...but it was still a delicious buffet :)

My son loves to toast and say "Cheers. "
He made his way around the table more than once.

Kolbie didn't think the tea was sweet enough :)

This time we made it to the beach with plenty of time to play and enjoy the fireworks. Daddy and Pop decided to buy some of our own fireworks to light on the beach while we were waiting for the big show. Everybody else on the beach decided the same thing, so It turned out the "Big Show" was all around us.

The kids did very well with the fireworks. Kolbie would point and say "Ahhh" in her sweet little voice and Kaylon... didn't get hurt.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Pop, Noni, Lori, and Courtney for coming to visit and sharing in our fun.

Happy Independence Day everyone!!


(Sidebar: I stumbled on some super cute nail polish for Kolbie at a Boutique in the Beau Rivage...1st time Kolbie has had her toes painted. That's right. They glow in the dark! Cutest toes I have ever seen!)
