Beachin' It Up, Before It's too Late

When we got home from vacation (I am putting up pictures from our week) we decided to check out the beach. We want to take Lu as much as possible before the oil tells us we can't any more. While we were away it was supposed to have made land fall. There are tar balls all over Pensacola Beach, not no actual oil yet. Still pretty gross. That didn't seem to stop the hundreds of people who were trying to enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Seriously, I still can't believe this is real. There is nothing like the beaches on the Gulf Coast. It is truly SAD. I think about all of the animals and people that will be affected. Do something, quick!

Testing the waters, only on the Sound side.

The ocean side- you can see the black line of tar balls on the beach. Pretty gross.

Didn't seem to bother these people.

Better take a picture while we can. (Is my finger in an electric socket? Check out the hair.)

And this is why the poor child has to be zipped in her crib. And this is from the outside.

It is all so sad!! I hate to think about the animals and people and dread the thought of how long it might be before the beaches will be clean again.

I also can't believe that Lucy is climbing in her crib already. I am probably being naive, but I like to believe that Haley won't do that before she is ready to go to a big bed. Ha ha, huh?
