BTW, gas prices are pretty LOW and reasonable in the Gulf Coast, which is where we decided to go. We stayed in The Battle House Hotel in Mobile, Alabama. Mobile was the perfect resting spot for us because it's in the middle of every place you can think of to go down there. The Battle House Hotel is a Renaissance Hotel that was established in 1851. While there we took our girls to see the USS Alabama and some pretty cool beaches! We even have some favorites that we plan to go back to. We were thinking this might turn out to be an annual trip for us. That's how much fun we had.
We used our Facebook Check-Ins and I'm really glad we did! A friend of mine who I used to work for in the Casino industry who lives in Pensacola reached out to us when they saw our check-in for that area of our trip. They came and met us for coffee and it was so nice to catch up with them while the kids played on the beach. Another check-in along Mississippi landed us a few hours with a friend of Don's who owns a radio station. He took us to lunch for some great bar-b-q and then invited us to the station where he had Fiona and Kinsley do a radio spot for the station. We had a blast and the girls loved it! Thank God for Facebook check-ins!!! It's amazing who will reach out to you along the way. Well...that's all I have for now.
