After a couple very stressful weeks, we packed the car and headed down South with some of our favorite people (the Mayers) to our favorite vacation spot: Fort Morgan, AL!
Normally we stop about halfway and spend the night in Montgomery, but this year we decided to try something a little bit different. We got up early Saturday morning and drove all the way into Mobile. We then made our way to Fairhope and ate at one of Guy Fieri's recommended spots: The Gumbo Shack. It did not disappoint!
While we were in Mobile, Harrison asked if we could go see the USS Alabama battleship stationed there.
So, of course, being the good parents and teachers we are, we happily obliged.
They also have a submarine located at the park which was neat to see.

The next morning we got up and made our way to the beach.
It was a really short drive, and we couldn't wait to hit the sand!
This was our view the first night there.
Look how pretty it was the next day.

Our dueling fishermen
We made our customary crabbing trek down the beach one night and found lots of big and little crabs.
Lovin our view!
Had to sneak in a little kiss!
Me and my not-so-little girl
The girls were collecting all the jellyfish that were there one day.
My two favorite boys
I especially love this sweet little boy!
We made the kids pose for us one night before we went to eat. They stood still and smiled when we told them to which pleased the Mamas.
Of course they did have to let loose and show off their silly side!

Our last night at the beach, we got to have an adults-only meal together.
We had sooooo much fun at the beach this year! Too bad we have to wait another whole year to go again.
