Beach Trip 2009

We had a great beach vacation! We went down on Monday and came home on Thursday! The boys had a blast (and so did Mommy and Daddy!)!

We ate great seafood, oh my goodness, it was so delicious! We ate at Hazel's, The Original Oyster House, Cosmo's and Jake's Steak and Seafood Grill! We ate at Cracker Barrel on the way down and Waffle House on the way home. While there we cooked breakfast a couple of times and lunch once.

This is where we stayed (The Phoenix West)! It was awesome!

Here are the boys and John on the beach for the first time after we arrived.

Here are John, Mason and James (His Mom and Dad came with us also). What a spectular view!

We went to the zoo on Tuesday morning. It was beautiful and well kept. The boys always love seeing the animals!

Here is little John having a blast in the wind with the sand!

And Mason had to bring the tractors with dig you know!

Here is the sunset at The Wharf.

Here are my boys hanging out with their Daddy on Tuesday morning while awaiting Ms. Julie's famous bacon omelets.

Here is the view of the beach from oour 19th floor condo.........fantastic!

The ocean from our condo balcony........what a terrific view!

Here are the boys on Wednesday morning for our little photo shoot........non-professional I might add.

Here is all of us........this one is going to be framed for the grandparents for Christmas presents.

Well, we are back and I am catching up on reading blogs. I also came home with bronchitis and the boys with colds (we made a stop by the peds office on the way in). Hope we all are feeling better soon.
Have you ever been to the Orange Beach /Gulf Shores areas?
Where do you vacation? Do you like the beach?
What have you been up to this past week? Hope all is well!

I love the family pics Marva! I am so jealous of the boys holding hands. that is a perfect shot! My three year old is in a horrid stage of not wanting his pics taken.

The photos are sweet. We enjoy
Edisto Island off the coast of South Carolina. No cell phone signal and NO fast food rest. It is beautiful and peaceful.

So glad you're home safely, and that you had a good vacation. You certainly deserve it after the summer! Sorry the germies found you there...hope you're all better soon!

P.S. Never been to an ocean beach....just lake ones. Like sand, like water, not fond of swimmy critters and currents that are stronger than I am. Call me a wuss, if you must. ;)
