So we looked at our calendars, agreed on some dates, called our husbands, and booked it. SOLD! So off to Gulf Shores we embarked, her and I and our four children. This could have gone either way: either a very, very fun trip or a very, very bad disaster. Lucky for us (and the children), it was the former. We had a great time! Isabella and Hudson had a ball spending SO much time together and Sam took to Addisyn like fish takes to water. Addy is one of his most favorite people in the whole world.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures:
We tried going to the beach. But it wasn't long before Danyelle and I decided to cut our losses and hit the condo's pool instead. You could see the oil in the water and the smell was pretty bad. So so sad! We did however capture a few shots of the kids while we were there:
Luckily, the kids didn't necessarily want to play in the water, they mostly wanted to play with sand. So we took care of that not once, but twice, by visiting some fun local family restaurants:
Call me crazy, but I think she likes him. Maybe,.. just a little?
Is there a better combination than sand AND suds?
We also went to Lulu's, which is Jimmy Buffet's sister's restaurant...
where Sam was once again able to fulfill his sand+water obsession.
Putting this one in the car was a fun challenge!
Every morning the boys woke up looking like this:
Ha Ha! Look at those handsome boys and their crazy hair!
We went out for ice cream:
We visited the shark store and got some fun souvenirs:
But I especially would like to thank Danyelle, who apparently taught the kids how to make silly faces for the camera while I was at the store, for these here gems. This is what I got whenever I asked Sam to look at the camera:
Yeah,... Every. Single. Time!
Thanks, Danyelle for inviting us on such an awesome adventure. I had a great time and I know the kids LOVED it. You guys are great travel buddies and I hope we can do it again!
And remember, we'll always have New Orleans ;)
