Greetings from the Gulf!

Hello from BEAUTIFUL Gulf Shores, AL!! We (mom, dad, Kaylen and myself) arrived here late Monday night. The water is clear and beautiful. There are cleanup boats and nets a couple hundred yards off shore, but other than that, you'd never know there was an oil spill. From what I've heard, they've done a great job cleaning it up.
Right this very moment we're waiting out a little thunderstorm before going to the pool. Yesterday we spent most of the day lounging outside catching (too much) sun. I have lovely raccoon eyes from my big sunglasses. But hey, tan lines are better than wrinkles later in life. I'm so excited to finally get a little bit of a tan!! I've been pastey all summer.
The only thing that could make this vacation better is if Chris were here. I know he made the right call choosing work...but still. I miss my hubby.
Our last night here we're going to get decked out in our white shirts and khaki shorts and take the family photos on the beach. My favorite thing to do!!
It's going to be super hard to go back to work after such a relaxing vacation. But I won't think about that now. Hope everyone is having as much fun as I am!
Love and sand,
