Fort Morgan

I know it has been a while since my last post. I can tell you it is not for lack of material to write about. We have been so, so busy. I am trying to catch up from this summer because we have so much to tell about that I am sure you don't want to miss. These pictures were taken at Fort Morgan, AL. While we were visiting Katherine we decided to take the ferry across the bay to the fort. We decided just to walk onto the ferry instead of driving our car since the fort wasn't too far from the bay on the other side.

The Fort is a really cool place. The kids really enjoyed it mainly because there were all kind of cool places to run and hide and get lost. It was neat to see a bit of history. There were so many great places to take pictures, if only the kids had cooperated more!

This picture was at the end of our day and would have been really cute if I could have gotten them all to look out and look happy!

Check out these stairs! They practically went straight down. I'm glad we don't have those at our house.

Notice the Gulf in the background.

A tunnel into the court yard.

This was a super long wall on the beach/gulf side of the fort. We walked all the way down it!

Here's a funny story - At the end of the day we looked at our watches and saw that we had only 10 minutes to make it back to the ferry or we would have to wait 45 more minutes for the next one. It was about 1/2 mile away from where we were, so we all took off running. L.C. was pretty far ahead of us (not surprising). We ran about 1/2 of the way and Pipi stopped and said that she could not go anymore that her legs were too tired. At that same time a UPS truck drove up and asked if we wanted a ride! It was awesome timing and we all jumped aboard with the packages in the back. We got there right as they were loading everyone! Thank you Mr. UPS man you saved the day!

Cute pics sis. Is Riley laughing in the first one? The fort looks really cool. I can't believe I have never checked it out myself.
