Vacation…. continued.

  We took a walk on the Gulf Shores, Alabama State Park Pier.  SOOOOO pretty at dusk.

My dad, Drew, Aaron and I went to the Pensacola Naval Aviation Museum one afternoon (again, Micah stayed at the pool with Aunt Alison).  I think Aaron wants to be a pilot when he grows up.

This is an anchor for an aircraft carrier.  HUGE.

This lighthouse was just across the street from the museum, so we decided to check it out, too.

(Can you see Drew and Aaron?)

We ate at some restaurant that let people feed a crocodile and turtles from the deck.

I tried to get some cute pictures of Aaron on the beach.  He was NOT in the mood for that.  I didn’t even try with Micah.  She has a mind of her own lately.

Vacation Pics- Gulf Shores!

We spent the night at Em’s, in Birmingham, on the way down.  Of course we had let all the kiddos play in the bath together (Sorry Brooks!  Maybe next time!)

As  soon as we parked the car and before we unloaded a single suitcase we walked down to the beach.  Aaron was a little overwhelmed with the ocean—he couldn’t stop looking at the water….

The view from our condo- so wonderful to wake-up to in the morning!

The next morning we were the first one’s on the sand.

Micah spent most of her afternoons (while her little brother was napping) at the pool.  Aaron hated the pool- he only got in it once.

Drew and I took Aaron shopping with us at the outlet mall one morning.  Micah stayed at the pool with Aunt Alison.  He’s a happy guy when he’s shopping!

We took an afternoon and went to the zoo.  It wasn’t anything like the Indy Zoo…. I’ll sum it up in one word.  Sketchy.

After Aaron found an add for dolphin tours in a magazine, we decided to go on one.  The kids both loved being on the boat!
