Night of the Crabs...

We went to Daulphin Island Saturday night so the kids could hunt for crabs...we just prefer the calm of Daulphin Island over Gulf Shores, that and it is so much closer.We got there early enough to play in the water, build sand castles and attempt to fly a kite(not to far out 'cause I am a big chicken when it comes to dusk and sharks).

As the Sun started to set we got ready for the "hunt"...we packed up our stuff and got our nets and buckets out and our flashlights ready.
Aaron is an old pro, as he has been doing this since he was 2 yrs. old. Russell and Miriam still need a lot of practice. Miriam spent more time screaming that she saw a crab then actually going after one. But they each caught one or two...some with the help of their big brother.

In a related story...the only shark we saw that night was one that someone had built in the beach out of was awesome. Sadly, our camera does not work in the dark and flashlights do not make good flashes. But it truely was a masterpiece.
