Adventures In Babysitting - Gulf Coast Style!

Happy Hump Day, Shopaholics!

Imagine for a moment - you don't have any children and you are babysitting a favorite nephew who has the "day off" from preschool. Other than a steady supply of Thomas the Train toys and DVD's, how do you keep the little fellow entertained? Did I mention he has LOTS of energy??? :-)

If you're me and DH, you take him to the beach. We already know he loves the beach! So here's what we did.

We let him play in the sand...
Running in the sand is also fun....because either me or DH has to chase him down...

He was fascinated by a washed up jellyfish...

Even I was amazed by this man of war's actually pretty, even though they will hurt you.

This is what "mostly cloudy with a little sunshine" means on the Gulf Coast of Alabama...I thought it was a beautiful photo...

Clouds rolling in on the beach never cease to amaze me...

A perfect day with two of my favorite men on the planet. What more could a girl want?

Have a Wonderful Wednesday - and feel free to leave your best babysitting tips and tricks. Next time it might not be beach weather. Believe me, I know how lucky we are to enjoy the beach on October 26, 2010. :-)


  1. Sweet Baby Godzilla. I'm surprised he slowed down long enough for you to take a picture of him. My babysitting tip (for him) Put all the cushions from the couch on the floor and make a pit-like barrier wall. Just let him run and crash back and forth. That keeps him busy for at least 20 minutes.

  2. LOVE IT!!! Y'all are fun babysitters:)

    Man....these images are making me miss living on Ono!!!

    You should take him one day to the "Little Zoo that could" LOL, it's a fun little zoo!!!

  3. babysitting is tough business! The beach is a great idea

  4. Aww!! It looks like you all had such a wonderful time. I am sure he loves his Aunt. I love to take the kids I babysit to Bounce-U. Not sure if you have them in AL but they are giant bounce houses for kids. A few hours in there and they are sure to pass out when you get home.

  5. Hi Lori!! Hope you are well sweetheart!! I've been thinking of you and am happy to be back and catching up in blog land :) Your little nephew is so darn cute, love that sweet little smile! What a treat to be so close to the beach, I am sure it was a day he will remember for a long time to come. So special to have that time with you! xoxox Lots of love!! - Trishy
