Gulf Shores Beach

What a blast!!!! I love the sand in my hands and the thrill that the waves give us. I love watching my babies run with joy when a wave crashed on their legs and even when a couple of my babies run with fright when the waves come crashing at their legs. I have a couple who stay on the shore most of the time building sand castles and then I have some that never come out of the water unless we are leaving. I had one who layed in the sand trying to find sea shells.
We weren't even sure if we were going to be able to play at the beach because of the rain. We had alternate plans if that was the case but we got there and it really was the best time to be there. Lots of people left because it had rained and the clouds were still all around and so we spent most of our time not in the direct sun.
The only thing I don't like about the beach is the fright I have as a mother over the possibility of my babies drowing. Or the pain we feel on the drive home as the sun burn gets a little worse. Or the sand that gets in every nook and cranny.
This is the only picture I got of all kids most of them were in the water the whole time so its hard to get pictures of them.
What an awesome day we had. And isn't that the most beautiful family you ever did see????
