For the Fourth a couple of our friends graciously invited us to come stay with them at their condo in Orange Beach, Al. And of course we graciously accepted! The last time, we had a beach vacation was when I was three months pregnant with Hudson, so we were long over due in my opinion. While, it did rain most of the time we were there, we still had a blast. The condo was located in a multi-purpose development with shops, restaurants and even a little water park complete with a lazy river. There were multiple fire work displays and every night there was a laser light show on the main strip with fantastically cheesy dance music. As you can see in the pictures, we did finally make it to the beach on the last day and it was so much fun to watch all of the kids playing and witness Hudson’s first impressions of the sand and water. He seemed pretty fascinated and calmed by the waves (as long as you didn’t try to put his feet in the cold water). All and all it was a great time with friends and a wonderful first family vacation.
