Lots of priceless moments for our family.
We started out in Watercolor on 30A with our friends the Taylors and one trusty babysitter
6+5+1= 12 people the first week
I still can't get over how crystal clear the water was
The next week, we met my mom and her family at a beach house in Gulf Shores.
25 adults + 5 teenagers + 6 kids + 3 (!!!) two year olds + 2 babies = 41 humans in one gigantic 3 story house
each couple was paired up with another couple to make dinner for the whole group. lauren and andrew paired up with us and we (isaac mostly) made ribs and salad, black eyed peas, and mac n cheese.
a major tradition. lots of card playing. spades and 'golf'
the family crab hunting while i was on the back deck
thankfully, there were two kitchens and a million bathrooms
we took our four kiddos to alligator alley, about 20 mins away from the house. charlie has been gator obsessed lately. he did NOT want to leave. very fun, so we plan to go back
cherishing these memories and the quality time we shared
and very happy to be home
