This past weekend we headed down to the beach with the Lisle/Leatherwood/Pate families. We were warned that Tropical Storm Lee was on it's way, but we braved the trip anyway and ended up having a blast. Friday we were all decked out in our Auburn colors to show our team spirit and when we stopped at Krystal's in Dothan, I just had to snap a picture of my little buddy in his Cam Newton jersey.
We arrived at the beach late Friday night and after a quick trip to the store we headed to bed. Saturday we woke up to lots of wind and rain, but we didn't let that bring us down. We hung out at the condo and watched some college football. I won't say much about the Auburn game, except that in the end we won and that's all that matters. Saturday evening it cleared up a little so we headed out on to the beach in our clothes for a little fun. The kids played in the water with our supervision while we hung out on the beach and chatted. After dinner that night, we broke out the sparklers..
Sunday we woke up to more of Lee, but we had plans- plans to have fun. So we started out the morning with breakfast at Flour Power, which was delish as always! After a catnap to sleep off breakfast, we headed out to Fun Land for some games, dipped cones, and 99 cent beer. Can't beat that!.
On our way back to condo, we stopped by Dippin' Dots for some ice cream..
And then we headed to some of the beach stores. Our favorite one was Everything's a Dollar where we found Gavin this sweet shirt and fanny pack....
Which he proceeded to wear out and about as we continued to shop. Sunday evening it continued to rain, but we had plans to grill steaks, so grill steaks we did. Then we finished up the night with a little Scategories.
And somehow Gavin and Beth both won. Cheaters.
Monday we packed our stuff and headed home early because another band of rain was quickly approaching. We got home just in time because the bottom fell out soon after. We ended up having a great trip, even with Lee, and I can't wait to go back!
