Memory jar

I have finally made a memory jar from our hurrication.

Yes a hurrication is an unplanned vacation caused by an evacuation due to a hurricane.

Hurricane Ike gave us a hurrication to Gulf Shores, Alabama.

The beaches were beautiful. The boys had so much fun playing in the water, making sand castles, and walking up down the beach collecting sea shells.

I let them keep every shell they found. They even found a sea horse!

I know the out come of Ike was not what I wanted but I tried to make it fun for the boys no matter what lay ahead for us at home.

Yvette at the Charm House had this great idea on her blog a while back and I copied it. Thanks Yvette!

And now we have a cool keep sake of our time in Alabama. And on the back of the tag I wrote a description of our hurrication.
