Vacation in Gulf Shores
GIRL TRIP!!! Our first annual girl's only (and babies) vacation was a few weeks ago. We (me, Em, mom, Aunt Mary, Aunt Duby, Jenny, and Chelsea) went to Gulf Shores for a few days of beach fun. We stayed at the beach club (http://www.beachclubal.com/). Benjamin LOVED the sand and the pools - he only tried to eat one handful of sand before he realized it was not for him. Virginia ran and splashed in the surf with no fear (she definitely outswam and outpplayed the older kids on the beach). Baby Owen also seemed to enjoy being outside in the sun by the ocean...We had a day of shopping and an interesting lunch at Lambert's, and our trip was over before we knew it!
I will write more later tonight or tomorrow about the rest of the month...
