Family Vacation!

We had a FANTASTIC vacation this year! Keith's parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this year and as a gift to themselves they took the whole family to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a week! Our condo, which slept 12 of us, was right on the gulf shore, just a few steps away from the beach! We spent a great time together, playing games, eating in, eating out, swimming in the pool and playing in the sand. Actually, the beach was probably the "least" exciting ... the jellyfish were out in force and we kept away! We visited the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge and Fort Morgan. We drove along the Coastal Birding Trail and took a walk along some trail we just happened upon! Such beautiful country! Some of the family went to see the Brooks and Dunn concert, but we decided to hang out at the condo with "Pawpaw". Christopher really enjoyed the time with his grandpa. Come to think of it, Pawpaw enjoyed this time a lot too! We also had family portraits done by Renaissance Portraits! This is NOT one of their pictures, just one that a friend snapped while we posed for the professional photographer! But, you get to see what a lovely family we have! Note who gets to hold Christopher! : )

We learned that our little guy is quite the "water baby"! He LOVES the swimming pool and floating around in his little inflatable crab. He has since even shown signs of wanting to try to "swim" with me holding him flat and him kicking his legs and sometimes even waving his arms! His little face will go in the water just enough to get a mouthful and then come up laughing. Anything more and it's a little scary! Since he had such a blast in Alabama, we started looking around our area for a public pool and found a great little gem! The county parks and recreation, along with a local recreation center have build a small water park, called Alligator's Creek! It is SO much fun and just the perfect place to take kids of all ages! We've been twice this week and will probably go again on the weekend(s)! Now that school is starting up again, the pool will only be open on weekends and we will only be available during the daytime on the weekends!

Speaking of school, the downside of vacation is that it must come to an end. I had to laugh because my last blog entry was the last day of school and today is the last day of vacation! Christopher is excited to go back to the babysitter's house! I'm glad one of us is excited! Heaven knows neither of US is ready or excited. (OK, I have to admit, there is a little teeny part of me that is excited for the new school year; just wish I could take Christopher with me!)

Well, we took ALL kinds of pictures in Alabama, which I will post in a link on the right. No, I won't post ALL of them since I think I took about 1,000! Just a "few"! LOL

Hope that you enjoy the pics! Have a great day!
