BEACH 2014

We had a wonderful time on our family beach trip in June. We stayed in Gulf Shores... the weather was perfect, the beach was beautiful, and the memories made were MARVELOUS!!! Our little beach bum was at such a fun age this year to really enjoy the beach! Here is a day by day recap of our beach  trip through LOTS of pictures (of course)!

Day 1
 On our way to the Sand and the Sun
 "What am I supposed to do with this shovel?"
Daddy teaching lil man how to dig a big hole while mommy oversees the project :)
Trying out the swimming pool and our puddle jumper...don't let this smiling picture fool you. He screamed for about ten minutes straight not wanting to wear his float.
Mommy with Caleb and his mean mug face
Late night snack...how about a box of Cheez-It?
Having a deep conversation with Big Daddy about something on the phone.

Day 2
 A little scared of the big water :(
Starting to get a little more comfortable with the whole idea of the big water
 Early dinner at Big Daddy's Restaurant
 Couldn't resist a picture with Big Daddy at Big Daddy's Restaurant
 A visit to the marina after dinner with Mr. Cool Dude
 Attempt at a family picture
 After dinner walk on the beach
 Love these two boys!
 Mommy's little man
 Watching the waves
He could throw shells for hours :)
Day 3
 Began the day with breakfast at The Hangout
 Visit from the Pirate during breakfast
 After breakfast we went on a treasure hunt. Caleb was so excited. He got three golds of bloom!
 He looks so tiny in this HUGE chair
 After breakfast we went to the outlets. Perfect playground to play while mommy shops.
 A break during the middle of shopping for some Dippin Dots.  Dippin Dots was a HIT!
 Carousel ride with Aunt Jill to finish off our day at the outlets.
 After a long day of shopping we enjoyed the last few hours of daylight on the beach! Perfect time and temperature to be on the beach.
 Digging a BIG hole!
 He insists on wearing his hat backwards. Still a cutie though ;)
 Beach Bums!

Finishing off the day with a swim in the pool

Day 4
 Checking out the ocean with Aunt Jenni
 No better place to be with our little family
Daddy giving a little pep talk about the ocean being fun
 The talk worked!!! He LOVED jumping over the waves.
 I am sure this is him saying " More Jump!"
 All that jumping wore this little man out.
 Dinner date with Big Daddy and Momma T while Mommy and Daddy had dinner!
Dinner Date 

 Sisters = Best Friends
 After dinner we all met back up for Laser Light Show at The Wharf
 Mesmerized with the lights 
Caleb got into the show and broke out in some dance moves :)
Day 5
 Up early to enjoy every minute of our last day on the beach!
 Beach Babe
 Silly Boy
 Digging holes with Aunt Jill

 The beach will wear a baby out! Looks like some good sleep.
Kisses for momma after nap
 All dressed and ready for dinner
 A visit to the Shark Mouth store with the whole crew
 So much fun with this little man

Spoiled rotten by his Big Daddy and Momma T
What better way to end the last night at the beach...ICECREAM!

All vacations must come to an end :(

After five wonderful days at the beach we are headed home and beginning the countdown for next year! Love making memories with my family :)
