We had a GREAT time! We went down to Prattville, AL for two days on our way to the beach. For those that don't know... Prattville is where we lived when we were in Alabama. We visited with friends for a couple of days, which was an awesome addition to our vacation. I don't have any of those pictures, but if any of our friends care to email me some pictures... I'll post them on the blog! For all of the parents out there... we had a "puke" experience on the way down with one of our boys!!!! 1 hour cleanup time in Birmingham... ARGH!!!! Darn DVD made him motion sick!!!
Anywho, we then hit the beaches of Destin, Fort Walton Beach, and Okaloosa Island! My wife's dad and stepmom live down there, so that is always our beach-of-choice. I think our family is getting too large to shack up with them, so a hotel is in the works for next year. Here are some of the many pictures I took. I only posted a few because I'm going to go to sleep soon. It was a long day of traveling and it is midnight as I type this!!!
My oldest son and oldest niece playing in the waves!
Here's an awesome ship that passed us in the sunset while we were out in the bay!
My gorgeous wife and one my handsome sons on the ship that took us out along the Destin Harbor and Gulf of Mexico at sunset!
Our boys and our two nieces on the beach (can you believe we got them to sit still!!!!)
Here's my wife and me on the beach (yes, that is a little "vacation scruff" on my face and yes, that is an Auburn hat!.... WAR EAGLE!!!) My wife is the best!
Here is my youngest son walking in the sand. Isn't he Mr. Coolguy!
I hope you enjoyed! Feel free to comment....
