An Ode to Mob-town (MOH Beel)

Sappy post alert! With all that’s going on in the world these days, it’s tough to recognize big events but life does go on. Amy and Tyler are moving on from Mobile, AL in their journey. Julie and I have come to like and appreciate the city of Mobile and all it offers, and not…

Divinity

Every time I see the divinity candy at Priester’s Pecans I think about Sonya. I remember being really young and at church we were to bring our favorite recipe and it was going to be put in a cookbook of sorts. I may actually still have it somewhere, I’ll have to look for it the…

Discovering the Pinta and Nina

Back in November, we saw an article that replicas of the Pinta and Nina would be docking in Mobile, AL. Since we often visit Amy and Tyler there, we wanted to check them out while there. We had traveled down for the annual University of Mobile Christmas Spectacular so the timing worked out for our…

Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland

Since we are chasing the spirit of Christmas this year, we decided that we would check out the Christmas lights at the Birmingham Race Course. Since we didn’t know what to expect, we searched online to try to determine how long it takes to go thru the displays, but we couldn’t find any suggestions. When…

Capitol Theatre Coffee & Ice Cream Parlor

In October we went to one of Avery’s football games in Maryville. We knew that on this trip we wanted to visit the Capitol Theatre for ice cream. We’ve made several trips but this would be our first time to visit here and get ice cream. The ice cream parlor is inside the beautiful Capitol…

BILL-EES

While we were on vacation and just across the bay from Mobile we decided to meet Tyler and Amy for dinner. Since it was a weeknight and they would have to work the next morning we decided to meet them in the Fairhope area for dinner. So again we turned to Yelp. Jeff found a…

My Mother-in-Love

My Mother-in-Love was one of the most precious people on earth. She loved to laugh and have fun. She loved her family BIG!!! and she loved her friends. She put her grandkids before everything!!!! She was absolutely in love with them and would do anything for them. If they asked for something she made sure…

A Spot of Tea and Mardi Gras Parade

We finally made a trip to Mobile to see a Mardi Gras parade! It was a rainy day, but thankfully the rain held off during the parade. We parked in an all day parking lot in downtown Mobile and then started our day on foot. Our first stop was for breakfast at A Spot of…

January Birthday’s

I’m a little behind on blogging. In January we celebrated Alana’s 6th birthday and Brantley’s 1st  birthday. We started off the month celebrating Alana’s birthday on January 5 at the Jasper Natatorium with a swimming party. I had to sneak a picture with Sammy after we got to Granny’s. He would not take one with…
