This weekend John David and I drove down to the Gulf Coast and shopped a little in Gulfport then we drove along the beach. It was really fun, we had no idea how close the beach was so we want to plan a day trip soon. Waveland is only about 35 minutes away and Gulfport is a little over an hour away. As you can see in the pictures the area is still ravaged from Katrina and it has been almost 6 years. The majority of the waterfront lots are vacant.. some are still living in RVs on their property and a fair amount of people have rebuilt.

On Sunday, John David and I went to our family's camp in Mississippi and met up with my mom, my sister, and some of her friends. We had a great time cooking out and exploring the creek. John almost stepped on a snake with his bare foot though.. scarrry. Sunni Dog had the best time of all running and digging in the sand and I was really impressed with her sticking her head all the way underwater in the creek.

Bailey never made it to the water..
