August Beach trip to Gulf Shores

My friend Becky decided she wanted to go to the beach this summer and asked if we wanted to join them. Luckily our schedule worked out so we could go together. So the week before school started we all piled out to Gulf Shores Alabama for some surf, sun, and sand! In the end we had less sun, but lots of surf, sand and FUN!
We decided to fly our plane since it's quite a trek to get there so we packed light, basically just clothes, suits and towels and headed out. Each family got their own condo in the small Southern Sands building in Gulf Shores AL. A nice beach front condo where you just step out onto the beach. Perfect for lots of kiddos. We had a great time!

It was pretty rough water the week we were there, but it didnt keep us from hitting the surf!

One of the days a hurricane just missed where we were and it was crazy windy but the kids and I were still out there!

The wind didnt keep the kids out of the water! Fun no matter what!

Did Mommy do a cartwheel after Tracy did one? Oh yeah. Ok, it's been a long time since I did that, getting a little old for cartwheels. Is there such a thing??

The kids loved hunting for sand crabs at night. We found tons and tons to chase around.
