May 23, 24, & 25 - Orange Beach 2013

On Thursday my dad and Jon got up super early and went fishing with a guide.  Neither of them had fished in the ocean before.


They caught so many they had to throw some back.


It's so nice going on vacation with grandparents.  This is what I got to do a lot of the time.  Heaven!

This girl loved the sand.  She even had it in her eyelashes and it wasn't phasing her one bit.

That evening Jon and I cooked the fresh fish and made fish tacos.  Happy entertained the girls while we cooked.

I try not to be one of those people who love to take pictures of their food, but this had to be documented.  If you don't like fish, just eat it fresh.  That will make you change your mind about that.  This meal was absolutely delectable!

While we were cleaning up, Annabel insisted we put this life vest on her.  I think she was trying to tell us something.

I found these precious beach-themed smocked outfits on a facebook consignment page.  I love recycled clothing and so does my bank account.  I so wish this had been taken with our big camera.  I guess the blurry iphone picture will have to do.


My mom made brownies and brought them down to us on the beach.  Here's Annabel stuffing her face with one.

I love the reflection of an almost full moon on the water.

We left after lunch on Friday to head back home.  

Because there aren't many safe stops between there and here, you either have to stop just 4 hours away from the beach, or drive all the way home.  Well, we weren't really wanting to do either, so we took a bit of a detour and went to West Monroe, LA for the night.  Since we were in Duck Dynasty world, I had to get a picture!
We didn't see any more celebrities, because it turns out they were at the same beach as us the same week we were!  

And if you're an even bigger DD fan than me and have ever contemplated moving to West Monroe, remember this picture and think again.  This is their water.  And yes, it tastes as bad as it looks.

The next morning Adeline must have been completely worn out because she slept for over an hour while Annabel made every noise possible and Jon and I got ready to get back on the road.

And this was me about 2 hours from home on Saturday.  Get me out of this car!!!

Thankfully we made it all in one piece.  What a great week spent relaxing with family.  We are so thankful for that blessing, but also glad to be back home.

  3. Hey! I randomly stumbled on your blog awhile ago and love reading about your sweet family. I had to comment about the water in WM. I am originally from Monroe and that picture made me laugh and laugh. Sometimes the water even gets so dark brown we call it tea water. Which I am sure is not good for your health! Glad you got to meet some of the DD cast. My mom has taught most of the kids. Hope you have a great week!

  8. Hey, I really like your article and the fishing images you have captured. Orange Beach and the surrounding areas are my favorite places to visit and take photos of.
