Well, once again, it's been a GREAT weekend! We learned, we came, and we MEDALED!

We had a great time on Friday in Gulf Shores. The water was too cold, of course, but the kids had the best time in the sand. We came back a little rosier than we left home. Daniel learned that when you put sunscreen on, the eyes should not be ignored. LOL--he looked like a funky racoon.

In Mobile, the kids did SO well!
