Orange Beach May 2016

We left home after church on Sunday and hit up Taco Bell for lunch.  

The drive was long, but we only made one stop for a bathroom break before Gulf Shores - so that was good.  

We stopped off at Target to load up on groceries for our stay and then headed to the condo.  

Not long after we settled in, the Blue Angels gave us a nice fly by as a welcome! 

After we took a nice walk on the beach, we found some games and a puzzle in the cabinet and had some delicious subs for dinner. 

The next morning we had our usual bagels and cream cheese for breakfast on the balcony and then sun-screened-up and headed for the surf. 

Brian and I relaxed in these chairs

The kids played in the ocean

And in the sand.

Our condo building.

Grace had a great time running up and down the beach chasing birds. 

and getting her legs buried in the sand. 

It was a beautiful day!

Because they said rain for Tuesday, we decided to get our pictures done on Monday.

Then we fed the seagulls some popcorn.

Feed the birds, tuppence a bag.

And grabbed some more pictures of the kids in those great chairs.

After dark we headed out for our usual nighttime crab hunt and glowstick walk.  

Once again, we were the coolest family out there!  

The beach is awesome after dark.  

The next day we took an early morning walk on the beach and then spent some time shopping for souvenirs.  

The kids went swimming in the pool and we had some rain showers.  I mostly took video this day - which you'll have to stay tuned for.  

In the evening we headed back to the beach to play in the sand and the water one more time before heading home in the morning. 

After packing up and checking out we headed north to Foley, AL to stop at the famous Lambert's Cafe - Home of the Throwed Rolls.

Ready to have some rolls throwed at them. 

Gracie putting her own butter on. 

You order a meal and then rolls are thrown at you and also sides like fried potatoes and fried okra are brought around.  There was also a lady bringing apple butter and molasses for the rolls.

One of the kids missed a roll that was thrown.  I won't name any names . . .

Chicken strips and french fries.

Baked rolls as big as her face.  She had a ball.

The waitress was kind enough to snap a picture of all of us after our meal.  The table sat all of us comfortably and had built-in paper towel holders.  Our kind of table!  

Stuffed to the gills and filled with rolls we headed home to Louisiana.  

Bye, bye beach!  Hope to see you soon!!
