Summer Fun (Part 2)

                                                                         Gulf Shores

We had the opportunity to go to Gulf Shores for a week to help celebrate Madison's Sweet 16.  Madison is my best friend Janet's daughter.  We had such a great time celebrating, visiting, swimming, shopping and eating.  Such a great time in fact, I hardly took my camera out.  I did get a few shots
of Taylor and Madison on the beach and some sparkler fun on the Fourth.  Thank you Mack and
Janet for hosting us.  That was so generous and we had such a wonderful time.

                         The girls agreed to let me practice my "dusk" photography on them

                                                           friends since they were two

Pictures with Poppy

they were tired of my "practice photography" so they got in a few silly ones.

the best part of the trip was getting precious time with our first grandchild
which included 16 total hours of windshield time
(not sure that was her favorite part)
we love you Tay
