Day 14 - Sweet Home Alabama

We left the campground at Scott early in the morning and began our drive from Louisiana, to Mississippi, to Montgomery, Alabama where we are currently spending the night.

Louisiana was foggy, and beautiful. We drove over miles and miles of bridges.



The drive lasted about six hours, and we got to the campsite close to 3 o'clock.
The weather was still nice and warm, so we all played and soaked up the sunshine on the freshly cut grass.
















Tomorrow is the day that we have all been looking forward to... getting to visit our friends, the Muncks!
There is a possibility that I will not have access to WiFi until Sunday, so there may not be any more blog posts for the next few days.
But, I will make sure to take lots of pictures, and will get caught up as soon as I can!
Until next time!

Day 13 - On the Road Again

We said "Goodbye" to Galveston Island at around 8:30 and made our way to a Walmart to stock up on food for the next couple of days.

We are slowly making our way to Tennessee to visit our (amazing!) friends, the Muncks. We are taking advantage of the number of days we have to travel, and today only traveled four hours. Our stopping point being at a campground in Scott, Louisiana.

It is so beautiful here. The weather is actually warmer than it was by the gulf, and we are getting a nice break from the ever present wind that we had parked by the beach.

We got all set up, and began using all the light we have left to get rid of the wiggles that were stored up on the drive over. :)

























We are now getting ready to head to McDonald's to get some supper. I think everyone is excited to be eating out for a change... we miss our fast food. :)
On that note, until tomorrow!

Day 12 - The Last Day

I wanted to get one sunrise in that wasn't hidden by the clouds. I went to the beach this morning hopeful, and I was not disappointed.
It was perfect. 

As I was doing devotions, in between running toward the waves and rapidly snapping pictures as each stage of the sunrise commenced, I came across this verse that perfectly captured the moment in words.

The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the people see His glory. Psalm 97:6









At one point, it became golden hour, and since there was no-one there with me to take pictures of, I set the self timer on my camera and snapped a few of myself.








The morning was almost perfect.
The only thing that would have made it more perfect would have been to be able to share it with Ben. Those moments, enjoying God's beauty, are the moments I miss him the most. <3

I spend the rest of the morning tanning.
And then of course, after lunch... we all hit the beach one last time.
Mom needed some pictures of her and Dad for her frames, so a mini photo shoot was on the schedule.














Once again, we all played in the waves. 








We just finished having a pizza party to celebrate our last day in Texas. A great ending to a great week!
And that was Day 11!
