The Aquarium Through Abigail's Eyes

This post is mostly just pictures....we went to the Georgia Aquarium on Sunday. Abigail had so much fun!!! Most of these pictures were taken by her. I have to say, she's not too shabby with the camera.

Beach Baby

The weekend of October 16th we went to Port St. Joe, Florida. My brother was on vacation down there and invited Matthew, Abigail & I to spend the weekend with him at the beach house. We were SO excited. We went shopping for all sorts of beach stuff: goggles, noodles, a bucket and shovel...the works. I worked a half day on Friday and we drove down after Abigail got out of school and I was finished with work. By 1:00 we were on the road. We got down there at about 8:30. Abigail was so excited to see Uncle D and his friend Melissa.

On Saturday morning we woke up with a mission....the beach! Unfortunately, when we stepped outside it was about 60 degrees. My hard-headed child insisted that we still go, so we loaded in the car and headed to the beach. When we got there, it was even colder on the water. Abigail refused to get in the water. (It was actually warmer than the air was.) We ended up wrapping her in towels and putting a long sleeved shirt on her. We made the whole experience fun, even though we froze!
Abigail loved playing in the sand.

When we finally gave up on the beach, we went back to the beach house. We had fun playing cards. After a relaxing afternoon we went out for dinner and to watch some college football.

It was very sad that we couldn't get our Hurricanes on TV even in Florida!!!!!!

When Sunday morning rolled around we were very sad to be leaving. Abigail didn't want to leave her Uncle D!!!! We can't wait for Christmas time...hopefully he'll be able to make it down here to visit us.

Here's a few more pictures from our visit.

Pumpkin Patch

A couple weekends ago we took Abigail up to Dawsonville for our annual pumpkin patch visit. Normally, we go to Bert's Pumpkin Patch, but this year, as we were driving up there, we passed Uncle Shucks. We decided to try them out this year. I was so glad they did!! They had so much more to do than Bert's does. There was face painting, pony rides and a corn maze. They even had a little maze for the kids to go through. Abigail had a blast running around the maze.

She got an adorable scarecrow painted on her face.

And, last, but certainly not least, she went on a pony ride.

After the pony ride was over Abigail go a bit grumpy. She looked at us and said she was ready to leave. We couldn't figure out why she was moody. When we asked her what was wrong, she said, "I wasn't ready to get off that pony and that boy took me off." She's so funny.

Daddy's Little Hurricane

On Saturday nights, you can usually find Abigail and her daddy parked in front of the TV for the Hurricanes game. I think she's going to be a sports announcer. The girl knows her stuff! HAHA!!

She's so much fun. She loves to watch sports with her daddy. And he eats that up.

Having a yard is a HUGE responsibility....

But I think Abigail is up to the challenge.
