Tiny Ted travels to Mobile

School starts on Thrusday for Noah and Luke so the family took a last trip to Mobile, Alabama. We took the boys to the USS Alabama which is a retired Navy ship permanently stationed in Mobile Bay.
The boys loved all the big guns. We spent several hours on the USS Alabama, checked out the planes, and went through the submarine.

We then traveled by car ferry from Fort Gaines in Mobile to Fort Morgan in Gulf Shores.

We ended the long weekend on the beach in Seagrove Beach, Florida before heading home to start school. Noah and Tiny Ted will begin 3rd grade together on Thursday. Look for them to blog about their school adventures on Noah and Luke's blog at

Tiny Ted

My family and I are hosting Tiny Ted's visit to Alabama. Tiny Ted is a geocacheing teddy bear whoese home is in Wales with Paul Harrington's class at Cefn Forest Primary School. Tiny Ted has also traveled to New Zealand to spend time with Allanah King's Year 3 and Year 4 class. He journeyed to America with Sheryl Nussbaum Beach where he spent time in Virginia. During this summer, Tiny Ted spent the night at the Birmingham Zoo for Harry Potter Zoo Snooze with Noah. They got to get close up with an alligator, snowy owl, and other animals. They made troll boogers in Potion's class. The best part of the night was a nighttime tour of the zoo that ended with a midnight train ride. At 1:00 AM, Noah and Tiny Ted received the new Harry Potter book. The both fell asleep to me reading the first chapter under the stars with the tiger bellowing for food.
