Jellystone Park RV Trip

Jellystone Park! What fun we had there! Definately a great place to vacation with the kids. They had a waterpark, mini golf, outdoor theatre that played a family/kids movie at dark each night. Lots of kids. Clint made a lot of friends. Yogi Bear brought cookies & milk to our campsite one night. Sandy is missing from those pictures because she was affraid of him... But she really loved him :) The kids got to do a lot of activities... We will definately go back soon. This was our 2nd trip in our RV. Still learning the tricks of the trade but great fun, and I think when Gavin is a year or 2 older it will be even more enjoyable :)

Lynn Meadows visit

Lynn Meadows is great place for the kids to go and play. Lots of creative play areas for them. Ben was cutting hay for the day at the coast so we drove down too and occupied our day at the museum. Had lunch at IHOP.... A real treat to the kids who ate pancakes for lunch. Chocolate chip none-the-less :)
Gavin did not sleep the entire day!!! He is horrible about napping if we are not home. I thought for sure he would fall asleep in the car or stroller at some point... but nope. Pretty much from 7am until late on our drive home about 10pm he was up... Towards the end it was not pleasant either :)

Beach in Biloxi

We decided to take an impromptu trip to the coast the weekend of July 4th. The fishing rodeo was going on and we decided to go check that out. We ended up viewing the fish and getting out of there pretty quick cause it was so hot and the kids were bored.
Next stop... the beach. The kids thoroughly enjoyed this! Gavin LOVED it.... Sand, water... he was in hog heaven! We did the typical things, ya know... burying each other in the sand... jumping the waves... etc etc.
We decided to stay the night and were able to get a room at the Sea Bee Base in GulfPort. It was really nice. Had a kitchenette and all. I think it was like $24 bucks for the night so that was awesome!
I loved the cheap prices at the BX too! We had to stock up on some toothbrushes, etc since this was so unplanned... Just killed me to have to pay for toothbrushes, deoderants, etc. since I have been getting them for free with my CVS deals.... Oh well, I did find cool pink camo and desert camo designs for the kids... Gotta love that!
The kids were pooped by the end of the day and quickly crashed in the room after we ate.... The next morning Daddy got some McD's Pancakes... which are our favorites!!! yummmmmmmmy. Sandy did not want her picture taken :)
