Saying Goodbye

Yesterday, Dad came home!  Grandma and Grandpa also came by for a visit.  The day should have been very happy, but a dark cloud was over us.  Beckett, our greyhound buddy from Canada, left for the Rainbow Bridge.  Mama cried and cried when she read his goodbye to everyone and then she heard he was gone, she cried some more.  She said that Beckett reminded her so much of Jack.  We know he is happy and pain-free now, but it is still sad that he had to leave.  Our thoughts are with his Mom, Dad and sisters.  Beckett, we will never forget you!

It is Mardi Gras weekend! Did you know that Mobile is where Mardi Gras actually began?  It's true!  Mardi Gras is huge in this area.  There have been parades going on for at least two weeks.  The celebrations here are family friendly.  They throw beads, stuffed animals and Moon Pies at you on the parade routes. We are going to miss the parade in the campground.  I was looking forward to it.  I love a parade!  We leave tomorrow morning before the parade and are headed to Texas for a week!  Dad is on vacation for a whole month!

The folks went to dinner last night with Grandma and Grandpa. They had swamp soup again.  Mom brought us some gator bites.  YUM!

We have really enjoyed our time here, but glad that Dad is back with us.  We have made a lot of friends and handed out our business card to several people, so we may have a few new readers.  I hope they are not disappointed in our blog. Mom says my writing hasn't been that good lately.  I just gave her a look.  I don't think she gets it.  Anyway, we hope we have some fun adventures to post in the near future.
This is my "Mom, what are your talking about?" look.

I will miss digging in the sand.
Pine cones are all over, but this one is large.  Look at it compared to Scout's leg. 

These are items Mom bought at a pecan store.  We are going to have Butter Rum Pecan Syrup on pancakes when we get to Texas.
We hope to come back here again.  Mom says this place has spoiled all of us.  I can't imagine a nicer place for us to walk and run.  The grass is starting to grow under our feet though and it is time to move on and explore more of America.

End of March - More Condo Updates

 March has been very nice here weatherwise.  We have had many beautiful days!  We survived spring break.  It wasn't crazy with college...
