Day 5 of our Gulf Shores, Alabama Family Vacation

Day 5 of our trip started out with Jake and I going zip-lining! We had a reservation to zip-line that morning, so Jackson stayed back at the condo with my parents. They took him to the pool and had a good time with him for a few hours. :-)

Our zip-line tour was at Gulf State Park and lasted about 2 1/2 hours. It was really cool! We were right across the street from the Gulf and we zip-lined over fresh water where we saw an alligator!

We had a short training session and then we headed up a rope bridge with about 11 other people and 2 tour guides. There were 7 lines total that we zipped across and once we were up on the first tower, our feet never hit land until the very end. We just zipped from tower to tower! 

Here are a few pictures from our tour. We didn't take a camera, so we bought the disk they offered there. 

When we were done zip-lining, we headed back to the condo to eat some lunch and we waited for Jackson to wake up from his nap to go to the beach.

Jackson's favorite thing to do was throw the sand into the water. :-)

Heres a picture of our condo from the beach. :-)

After a couple hours at the beach, we decided to head up to the pool for a little while. 

Jackson just LOVED the pool!

After swimming at the pool, we headed back up to the condo for dinner and some relaxation!

It was another great day in Gulf Shores!

Zip-lining is so awesome! We have a trip lined up in April, and I'm hoping we'll get to zip-line then. And, how fun that you got to go just the two of you.

Jackson and Marcus would have a blast at the beach together - both of them just throwing sand into the water (that's all we do when we go to the beach)! :)

I just love Jackson's hat!!! What an adorable little beach baby.

I'm showing a picture of me ziplining this Friday on the blog. For some reason, my harness made me look REALLY weird. Wait and see.

Just found your blog and I love it! It's so much fun to look at, LOL. Your son is beautiful and I love the pictures you take.

Hope you stop by. :)
