Day 2 of our Gulf Shores, Alabama Family Vacation

I'm going to skip "Throwback Thursday" this week and continue on with Day 2 of our Gulf Shores vacation. We'll pick up on #tbt next week! :-)

If you missed Day 1, you can catch up here.

Day 2 of our trip, we woke up and headed out to Wal-Mart to get some groceries and necessities for the week. But before heading out, I got a few pictures of the condo.

The condo was perfect. The perfect size and it was in the perfect location.

Wal-Mart was jammed!! It was not a fun trip and it lasted WAY TOO LONG! Jackson usually does pretty well at the store, but it was just taking way too long, so I ended up getting him down and letting him run around for a little while. I took him back to the toy section to play with some toys while we waited. I snapped this picture while we were back there. :-)

Once we got back to the condo and had lunch, we put Jackson down for a nap and just relaxed a little.

Once Jackson got up from his nap, we headed down to the beach.

This is a picture from our condo balcony. The beach was just a short walk, which was wonderful!

Jackson wasn't overly impressed with the beach. He enjoyed playing in the sand a little bit, but didn't love the ocean. There were times when we'd ask him if he wanted to go to the beach and he'd say "nah". LOL.

My Dad and Jake in the water!

After spending some time at the beach, we decided to go spend some time in the pool before dinner.

Jackson LOVED the pool!!!

While we were at the pool, I snapped this picture so you could see our condo from the outside. Ours was the one in the lower right hand side with the lime green chairs. :-)

As you can see from the picture above, it was starting to get dark and a storm was blowing in. So we headed back up to the condo to fix dinner. We also watched the storm roll in from the balcony. It was a pretty wicked storm with lots of lightening and some VERY loud thunder!

Thankfully the storm didn't last long and we had a great rest of the evening and a great first full day of vacation (minus the trip to Wal-mart).
