Beach Trip 2009

We made it home in one piece. For us that is always an accomplishment when it comes to the beach. We had a great relaxing week down at Gulf Shores. It was great to just get away and spend some time together! We didn't do anything really exciting. For the most part we just relaxed and enjoyed hanging out. Oh and we ate lots of great food! I have lots of great pictures from the week I want to share so hopefully you won't get too bored!

We weren't there for 5 minutes before Ben was asking to go to the pool. The boy loves the pool! He is getting so good at swimming. He can get around all by himself.

We went fishing one day. Ben helped daddy and together they caught a fish (Matt caught 5 but Ben caught one too!)
Ben's favorite thing that we did was go to the water park. He LOVED the water slides. He probably went down them 75 times! We spent 5 hours enjoying the water park!
Had to play some golf!
Ben and Daddy riding in Go Carts!
We had a great time celebrating Matt's birthday. We went out to dinner and enjoyed a yummy cake from Edgars!
We of course had to see Brad & LeeAnn so we got to eat dinner with them one night!
One of the few pictures of Ben smiling on the beach. The only way he would be happy is if he was eating Cheez Its! He is still not a big fan of the ocean or the sand.
Our friends the Thomas' from Knoxville joined us for the last couple of days. They have twin boys who are Ben's same age. The boys had a blast playing together!
