Happy Labor Day and beach recap pt.1

We made it home from the beach Saturday evening. Thankfully we came home with almost ALL clean clothes so it was pretty painless to put things away. I had suitcases unpacked and cleaned out before bed. I had to run to the grocery store to get a few items for the holiday weekend and the van needed a good wash and vacuum. #hello10hourroadtrip


Gulf Shores, AL is one of our favorite beach spots as a family. Thanks to Kelley and Tyler we have the condo hookup too! #schumeyvacation (if anyone needs info on a 2 bedroom condo in Gulf Shores, AL please feel free to message me)

We left last Thursday and drove 10 hours with 2 stops. We were all troopers and ready for dinner by the time we rolled in...Wyatt LOVES seafood so our first stop, even before the condo, was The Hangout for crab legs.  We have been to The Hangout quite a few times. It's a popular restaurant but one that's not on our MUST DO's.

After dinner we went to the condo and unloaded our stuff. We got settled in before taking a quick walk on the beach. We just couldn't go to bed before getting our toes in that sand!!

We woke on Friday to the amazing view...

We enjoy going at this time because we have the beach to ourselves for the most part. It's a nice perk on the beach as well as at dinnertime when waiting for a table. We made a quick grocery run before getting on our suits and setting up camp for the day. ;)

Someone was ready for the beach....

The could play for hours on the beach. I actually set up a time lapse video for fun and it condensed 10 mins. into 20 seconds of them just playing non-stop in the sand. They are seriously fish!

Friday evening we got ready for dinner at the Shrimp Basket. It's a good place if you enjoy LOTS of fried food. It was a quick meal for us so we ran into a souvenir store and the kids wanted a pic. with the shark. ;)

My aunt and uncle were at the beach during the same time. It was a fun treat to be able to meet up with them for ice cream. We had a great visit!! Matt's Ice Cream is GREAT!!! 

After dinner both Wyatt and Sloane (and maybe a little bit of Daddy) wanted to play a round of putt-putt. There are lots of places to choose from and we ended up at Pirate's Island Putt Putt.

Saturday morning the sun was rising so pretty...I wanted to snap a few pictures of the kids on the beach. I was so happy to have the cooperate!! I have quite a few pictures of the photo shoot, LOL, so is set to post tomorrow. Happy Monday friends!!
