Trip - Part 2

After we left MS, we headed to Florida to see my sister and nephews. On the way we stopped in Mobile to see the USS Alabama battleship. As we walked up the ramp, Elijah looked down and said "this is in water!!" We assured him that it was supposed to be in water, since it was a ship. "What if it starts to swim?" he wanted to know. Fortunately, it stayed put as we toured it.

My sister lives on a tiny Army base near Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. It's about 20 miles out in the middle of nowhere, but it has really nice housing, a huge park, a pool, and even a reptile house with snakes and alligators. Of course, the boys just loved that. What I didn't expect in Florida was to be freezing the whole time! They were having very unseasonably cold weather.

On the way home we spent a night North of Birmingam, Alabama. There was no particular reason, just that we really felt like stopping. The next day we had planned on stopping in Kentucky to see the Mamouth Caves, but the weather was so cold and rainy that we just kept driving and driving all the way home. From Alabama to Michigan.

Also, on the way home we got off the interstate
in Alabama, Tennesse and Kentucky so we
could see a little more of the states. In Alabama, what initially looked like trash along the streets turned out to be cotton blowing around. That's just not something you see in Michigan.

All in all, we had a good time. The boys had a lot of fun with their cousins and were very very good travellers. Jonah has improved greatly since our last trip to the U.P Posted by Picasa
