Memorable Vacation Moments, The Good & The Bad

  • Getting packed up for the trip to Gulf Shores, AL (everything but the kitchen sink!!)

  • dropping both of our cell phones in the pool the first night there


  • me melting down after dropping both cell phones in the pool


  • me thanking God for reviving one of those phones


  • coping with the tiny-ness of our condo unit


  • wishing this house was where we were staying



  • meeting up with my parents and sister at the Gulf


  • playing in the beautiful white sand



  • getting stung by jellyfish


  • hunting for crabs by flashlight after dark


  • goofing off with my sister



  • shopping the outlet stores and cheesey souviener shops, among others


  • having fresh all-u-can-eat fish!!


  • watching a school of dolphins swim by just out from where we were swimming


  • playing *pirate putt-putt* with Nana and Papi



  • hunting for seashells


  • sand art by The Princess



  • getting the best tan I've had in years


  • watching my kiddos have the best time playing with the lizard they caught



  • exploring Fort Morgan (very cool!)



  • eating more great seafood


  • playing Scattergories, Phase 10, the memory game with family


  • wishing I could play on the beach everyday with my kiddos

Looks like the good far outweighed the bad. What a creative way to blog about your vacation. I loved the photos, especially the ones of Mr. B with the lizard, the sand art by the Princess, and your final family photo. Everyone looks happy and rested. Welcome back!

Looks like you guys had a lovely trip!

And on your note about the Journey and Def Leppard concerts, I would totally have to go. I love both! :-)

I loved your pictures. It looked like you guys had a great time!

I think my good friend, Lyndsay, over at Life in Motion used to go to the Gulf Shores and loved it. She was raised in Louisiana.

Glad you had a good time!
