Friday: The Alabama Gulf Coast

Friday afternoon we made it to the Gulf Coast to spend a couple of days with my parents and my brother's family.  The weather was perfect and beautiful, and we decided October was the perfect time for the beach.

Cutest Little Boy

The water felt a tad cool upon first entering it, but it didn't take long to feel perfect.  I think James went out farther with B.P. than he ever went previously.

It was so fun getting to spend time with my nephew, one of the cutest 2-year-olds alive.

We wanted to get a picture of the three cousins together, but it was more difficult than we first imagined.  As soon as we got them seated, one would get up and walk away.

We finally succeeded, though you can't see all of their faces.  Ah, well.

Caleb commandeered a sandcastle village.

He collected all of the shovels he could find and wasn't happy when it was time to leave.

Ella is like a fish in the water.  She could ride the waves for hours.

Supper was a perfect and fun outdoor affair.


  1. Fun pics! Yes, it was a perfect weekend to visit the gulf (if you avoided the shrimp festival). Our family went camping in the state park this weekend.

    1. We started to go to the Shrimp Festival but ended up changing our minds, and I'm glad. It was good to avoid the crowds. I would love to try camping there sometime.
