Schmey Vacation- Gulf Shores, AL

We arrived in Gulf Shores on Friday afternoon. We got all settled in and headed to the grocery store. ;) We got all the snacks, drinks, and lunch food we needed. Then it was dinner time!

The weather was amazing EVERYDAY! The beach in Oct. was amazing! It was mid-70's and sunny. It was warm enough to get a tan but not warm enough to sweat. PERFECTION!!!

We woke each morning and by about 10am we were all ready to head to the beach. (We didn't sleep late but took our time getting ready. We went to donuts one morning and shopping another.) We would sit, take walks, listen to music, read, and talk ALL DAY! About 4pm we would walk back up to the condo and get ready for dinner.

We wanted to try a few restaurants we haven't been with the kids the other trips we have taken. We found some we can't wait to try again and some we are happy with the "been there, done that" hype.

After dinner we usually went back to the condo for an ongoing game of Hand and Foot. It may sound a little boring to some but to us it was BLISS!!!!

We missed the little's so much but they were having a blast spending time with family .I was so nervous as this trip got closer. There were so many variables that played into it...and they all worked out! It was so fun to be able to spend time with Mark and our friends having hours of uninterrupted conversation and eating at nice restaurants where we wouldn't take the kids. ;)

We made it back to STL late Wednesday evening...another AWESOME vacation in the books!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
