Friday ~ Orange Beach, Alabama

We headed out Thursday night at about 10:30.  We were hoping to leave my 8 but Brian had a school board meeting to attend.  It actually worked out better this way.  We stopped and had breakfast in Mobile around 8.  Check in wasn't until 3.  We decided to stop by the rental company before we hit the beach.  They let us check in early! As long as we didn't mind that one bed didn't have a comforter yet.  Did NOT mind at all!!  As soon as we checked in we changed into our swimsuits and hit the beach. 

This was our view from our balcony.  We really didn't care much if we had a view of the beach, we just wanted our condo on the beach. 

 This is the back of the condos.

Brian stayed out at the beach a short time.  He drove all night and was exhausted.  He went back to our condo and slept for many hours. 

Around 1 or 2 the girls and I went to get lunch,  and groceries. Then back to the beach we all went.

 Our condo had an outdoor pool that connected with the indoor pool.  It was fun.  After the beach the kids would swim for a bit.  Mostly to clean off.  The sand was super soft.  The water had seaweed floating everywhere.  Super gross but worth it.  :)

Our showers ended up being at the end of the day before we went to dinner.  Here the kids are waiting at a restaurant.  They are tired from a long drive and all day playing at the beach.
