Day 6 of our Gulf Shores, Alabama Family Vacation

On day 6 of our Gulf Shores Vacation, we mostly just hung out at the beach and condo. 

This bucket of crabs was on the beach that day. Someone had caught them the night before. Jackson thought they were pretty cool. :-)

After a fun day at the beach, lunch and naps, we got ready and  headed into town for family pictures on the beach. A woman that Jake used to work with was going to be in Gulf Shores the same week as we were. She and I had a great idea to meet up and take family pictures for one another on the beach.  It worked out great!

I also took a few of Jackson while we were there. The lighting on the beach that evening was so perfect. I could have taken a ton of pictures of Jackson that night, but he was a little uncooperative and it was really HOT!

After family pictures, we headed to LuLu's for dinner.  I had gotten many recommendations for LuLu's before we left, so we wanted to try it one night. We had been told the wait would be long, and it was. A little over 2 hours. So I put our name on the list and we went and did some souvenir shopping while we waited. When we got back, we had about another 30 minutes left, which was fine. There was sand everywhere for the kids and they had a live band playing. The whole restaurant is outdoors and it was huge! The food was really good, I would highly recommend it.

It was another great day in Gulf Shores.

I just love his outfit in the family pictures. I could so picture my little guy in something like that down the road. :)
