Throwing Rolls, Blue Angels & Popsicles!

My friend Sherry has been working quite a lot here lately and needed a weekend with just the ladies. She invited me and several others to the beach. It ended up being three of us. We picked up Mana from school and headed to my dad's house to drop her off. Then on to Orange Beach. I let Sherry drive the rest of the way from my dad's house. (We took my car) You have to understand that I have a trust issue when it comes to being a passenger in a car. I always drive. I even let her drive home on Sunday night. I didn't even scare her to death by holding on to that lovely handle really tight! You know the one! When I'm a passenger, I usually have a very tight grip on that handle the whole drive! I'm getting better about it. (Shhhh, Don't tell my husband that! LOL!)

We got down to Foley and ate at Lambert's, home of the throwed roll! It was the first time I have ever been there. That was the best cheeseburger I have ever eaten. And all the veggies! Yum! We headed on to Orange Beach. We finally got there around 11:30 pm. We stayed in the Phoenix I.
Sherry and I got up around 6:40 am and watched the sunrise. It was beautiful! God paints the best sunrises, don't you think! We decided to go and watch the Blue Angels fly. We ended up parking out aways. We were told the Blue Angels started at 2 pm, but not that they were having an air show all day. We didn't miss the Blue Angels so we were happy. It is amazing to watch them. How they get that close and don't crash. What trust they must have to do that! Watching them was the best part of the whole trip. We all decided, that next year we will bring the kids. They will love it! They played the music really loud and there were tons of people there.

We ate at Doc's seafood restaurant after the show. It was also pretty good. On the way back to the condo we stopped to take some pictures at a beach public access and froze like popsicles. We got some great sunset pictures and saw some cranes. Then we stopped across the street from the Florabama for a picture by their bus! Then we went to the condo to watch the Alabama game! Roll Tide Roll! Sherry and I decided to go get in the hot tub and then get in the freezing outdoor pool. We went from the hot tub to the pool several times. Christy thought we were crazy. It wasn't all that bad.

Sherry and I woke up to see the sunrise again. We got some beautiful pictures this time. It was gorgeous! We left to come home and visited my sister on the way in! We finally got home around 7:15 pm. I was so exhausted! We had the best time! Can't wait to go back!
