    I just got back from a couple of days in Gulf Shores, Al. Took my 11 yo grandson and his friend down for a little vacation. I spend 4 hours driving down, then about 3 hours playing with them in the Gulf jumping the waves, then we went in the pool, after dinner we went souvenir shopping. Back at the condo, I passed out, they were still going strong. The next day we spend 8 hours at the water park going down the slides. Then we took our flashlights down to the beach, walked and walked while they chased sand crabs. Later, once again I passed out and they were up half the night watching movies. Today we went to the Pensacola Naval Air Museum for about 3 hours, went to lunch, then made the 4 hour drive home. NOW, I need a vacation! Had a great time but I can't remember the last time I have been this tired. I admit I am getting a little too old to keep up with the kids.

    I understand that need for a vacation after vacation.
    You need to rest up to get back to quilting!
