Alright, so sorry about the blogging break, we went on vacation at the end of September/beginning of October, and we have been going nonstop since getting back. So, here is the post about our wonderful vacation!
We rented a beach house with Kira and Andrew in Gulf Shores, AL. Grant and I had played with the idea of going to an all inclusive resort,but this just happened to work out and was a lot cheaper. We budgeted a lot extra in advanced to make sure we didn’t worry about going over budget on this vacation. This was our first vacation since our honeymoon 5 years ago, and we wanted to really enjoy it and relax.
We arrived on Saturday afternoon after Kira and Andrew,but for us it was around a 5 hour drive which really wasn’t bad.
Grant took this picture of Kira and it looked like it should be a Kindle ad.
We played the Game of Thrones Board Game.
While playing the board game, Andrew thought it was hilarious that I was a ruthless board game player even toward Grant. I blame Oma who taught us from a young age to show no mercy while playing Mensch Ã¤rger Dich Nicht.
We introduced Kira and Andrew to one of our favorite games Pandemic!
We ate at King Neptune’s which had pretty good food, and we had a horrible sushi experience,but we have some fun memories from it I guess.
We went to Gelato Joe’s for the Gelato, only to eat dinner and be too full for the Gelato that had such great reviews…FAIL.
As we were leaving, we stopped at the shrimp basket which was also phenomenal, their crab cakes and coconut shrimp were soo good.
An awesome video Andrew made.
We left right before the hurricanes came into the area so the timing and weather was perfect for our stay. Thanks Kira and Andrew for doing so much of the planning since you two are pros!
We had a wonderful vacation, and it was so nice to be there with Kira, Andrew, and Alana. It was so needed, even if it was hard to get back into the swing of everyday life when we returned.
