Vacation getaway!

In case anyone missed us, we're back safe and sound!  We spent the last 7 days in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama.  I am not a 'beach person' that lounges on the beach all day, but the beaches are just beautiful.  I'm happy spending a few hours in the sand then moving on to something else!  It was a bit chilly and windy for the beach, but the kids still enjoyed it.  We did a lot of shopping at the outlet mall, ate at Lambert's of course, went to The Track, played mini golf.... and did a lot of nothing in between.  It was a much needed get away from everything going on at home.  We really like it in Gulf Shores and hopefully someday we would like to own a beach house there so we can go on a regular basis!  

Here I am on the beach!

Coats and sand!

Very windy and huge waves!

The girls had a blast feeding the seagulls on the lagoon.

Our beautiful beach house.

We have arrived...

Rain the entire drive, but we made it to our destination safely. Not a soul on the beach because of the weather...

Look at that.  Even the cats celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday.  

We celebrated too.  Nine years!!  Clint sent me nine roses.  We went out to dinner with out the kids.  Early to beat the crowds.  Copeland's food was delish but our waitress was a bit frazzled. 

Here we are February 14, 2003.  My all time favorite wedding picture.  Seems like so long ago!  So much has changed since then. 

And look who came home with another surprise??

That front tooth has been wiggly for months it seems.  It finally decided to come out.  Val wants to keep her teeth and has no interest in money from the tooth fairy.
