A few weeks ago, we joined my parents and siblings for a getaway in Gulf Shores, AL. We all chipped in to rent a beach house, and it was a fantastic week of sun, rest, and relaxation. It was glorious!
By far, one of my favorite things about this vacation was that they house we stayed at had a private pool..Roarke LOVES the water. Like, seriously, he pitches a huge fit every time I get him out of the bathtub. So, naturally, he loved being in the pool.
We attempted to do the beach thing with him, but that lasted all of five minutes. The stretch of beach where we were was incredibly shell-y, which made it very unfriendly for baby tootsies. And there was a pretty steep incline once you got to the edge of the water, which again made it difficult for him to walk. Plus, he wanted to run head first into the ocean with no abandon, which gives this mom heart palpitations.
AND it happened to be Shark Week on Discovery so I was already a bit tense.
I really wanted to get some cute pictures of him on the beach, but there was no way I was letting go of his hand and leaving him to his own devices (see above statement about running head first into the ocean). So, alas, this is the only picture I got to document his first walk on the beach.
My brother and his fiancee were with us so we went to the beach and attempted to get some photos for their Save the Date card. Beach photos are hard, y’all. Sun, wind, sand..all elements that are working against you. We managed to get a couple cute ones though.
Anyone else squeezing in a last minute summer vacay?
