Absent, Great Grandma, Inclined




 
Great Grandma lives in Gulfport, Mississippi... i use to spend my summers there and LOVED it!!! I have very fond memories of summers in THE SIPP!!! I was super excited to share some with Bub!!!


Playing in Grandma's backyard is the best!!! grandma liked watching him too :)
went to my FAVE place to eat... BLOW FLY INN... it is set up on huge pier and beams and the view is SPECTACULAR... and so is the FOOD... southern home cooking at its best

Our waitress was a blast and so sweet... Drew introduces himself as Drew Brees (the Saint's QB) so she made sure to hang his Blow Fly right by The REAL DREW Brees' fly... so cool
 
Had to visit my Aunt Deb... she and Uncle Larry have never met Drew... look at their backyard... I am jealous... we had a blast spending an afternoon with them

He fell asleep after Aunt Peg's (that is what he calls Aunt Deb) and so we went back to grandma's... we were going to go to the beach again... he woke up and was not happy SOOOOOO....back in the car and off we go
at the beach and we had a lot of fun... it was LOW TIDE and lots of fish and crabs were around...hubs is obviously excited about the pic with me right? and I didn't realize so much of me is cut off BUT I am not redoing this

see the difference...this is the AFTER the beach pic
i wanted to check out the new casino...  Margaritaville... it was FAB... we took Drew there for Lunch and then we headed back after he was in bed for a little slot action... It was really nice and the atmosphere was so chill!!!
this bakery is on the way to Margaritaville and I thought it would be a great pic... the local kids were allowed to paint a square (not technically a square but ya get it)
 

other highlights of my trip... cousin Kristen came over to visit... do all grandparents have those giant spoon and fork... and we went shopping of course AND i had to share the sno cone shack with bub... I went to this little shack ALL the time when I was little... I paid it forward here... the sno cones are SO cheap so i told her to keep my change (my winnings from the slots) and to let it pay for all the people behind me it possibly could... I guess NO ONE has ever done that before because she blessed me forwards and backwards... SMILING!!!

Our trip was great I LOVE seeing my grandma and Drew had a blast everyday!!! our 10 hour ride home was mostly through storms BUT bub handled it pretty good... HUBS not so much... LOL
 so that is ONE reason I have been absent from blogging... I will have more reasons ... later like Sunday so check back

  7. My parents lived in Gulfport for two years as they served with North Carolina Baptist Men as the construction rebuild coordinators after Hurricane Katrina. Gulfport holds a special place in my heart.
    Glad you are back!
