Carla and I have been talking about taking a trip to the B (the beach) since last summer. I made a few calls and found a great deal on a condo in Gulf Shores. So my cousins, husband, and a few friends made a trip to Gulf Shores...just not at the same time. Carla, Stephanie, Braden, Stacey, Taylor, and Amy began the trip with me, then Gelena and Jason met us down there a few days later. Michael, Amy, and her kids came down the day after Carla and her family left. It was extremely relaxing! I didn't have to be anywhere at a certain time for an entire week.

Every night Taylor stayed up as late as we did. The night that Jason and Gelena came, he just couldn't make it. He fell asleep upside down on the couch at 3.
Taylor REALLY wanted to ride the boats......until he got on.
I love Dippin' Dots! Before everyone left to go home we had to stop and get some. They were delicious.
Taylor's first Dippin Dot experience. What do you think, Taylor?......
Braden wanted to get the air mattress out on their last night at the beach. We blew it up and the boys LOVED it!
After Carla, Stacey, Taylor, Braden, Stephanie, and Amy left Jason, Gelena, and I had a pretty boring night at the condo.....until this grasshopper showed up. Gelena is deathly afraid of bugs, so I tried to get it out of the room. The little thing kept jumping around the room as Gelena ran around screaming. I was super brave....until it jumped in my hair! Then Jason had to come to the rescue. He finally trapped him in a Wal-Mart bag and set him free outside. It made for a very funny night. We laughed about it for hours.
My friend, Amy, and her kids came down for a few days. Michael rode down with Amy. Michael and Jason had a lot of "fun" together for the few days they were together.

I took my camera with me to do some family beach pictures. I had great models while too! :o)
