Beach Time!!!

This time last week we were a bunch of beach bums! We went to Gulf Shores, AL and had a blast! It was Asa's first trip to the beach! I was worried about how he'd handle it. He did great though! He was good for the 9 hour car ride! He loved the sand but didn't want to go in the water. He played happily in his chair that was buried in the sand.

I didn't even take pictures! I left my camera here and barely used my phone on the beach. I bummed the ones Barry took and they are good! I guess I was just living in the moment instead of messing with a camera.

Just a quick TMI update-Asa was constipated on the way down. He would grunt forever and then we'd stop to change him but he'd just have a tiny bit. We'd change and him and drive on only to have him do the same thing all over again! I hate stopping! I like to hit the road and stop once to fill the gas tank, fill our bellies and potty. This stop and go, stop and go drove me crazy! Once we hit the beach, Asa got diarrhea! That was fun! He also got pukey in the evenings. I think he was just plain old tiring out. Asa and I rode home early with Barry who had to get back to work. I hated to cut it short but I really think he was tiring himself out! Plus we still had 3 days of beaching! The big kids loved all 6 of their days though! They went shopping, water parking, dolphin cruising and beaching! Asa wouldn't have enjoyed those activities nearly as much as they did!

I have no idea why I'm wearing a picnic table cloth as a cover up?! This was the day we got there and I ditched the thing after that!

Thank you DeeDee and Pa for such a fun trip!
