Gulf Shores day 4 and 5

Day four was The 4th of July, which is one of my favorite holidays.  The 4th always consists of making a flag cake tradition, the beach, and bbq and fireworks.

That morning, Brynn and I worked together to make our usual flag cake.  We always made this growing up every year and this was the first year Brynn was big enough to help.  & by help I mean eat spoonfuls of whipped cream.



But clearly she was proud of our finished product.

Afterwards, we headed down to the beach for some fun in the sun.  More playing in the waves, digging giant holes and finding crabs to put in our buckets.







And then, lots and lots of watermelon.  & a big ol' 33 week belly.  


Later that afternoon, after naps were had, we decided to change up our usual tradition of bbq ribs for a good ol fashion southern shrimp boil.  It was so easy and so delicious when we just had it for Father's Day... we decided to have another go at it.


Just as delicious as the week before.  

Dinner was followed with a photoshoot of my mini in her Fourth of July best.  Ugh I could just eat her up.






This was the first year that Brynn was also able to make it til' 9 to see the fireworks at the beach.  She was so excited and kept saying "wow, so beautiful, I love it!"

Such an awesome day.

Unfortunately, the next day was rain, rain alllll day long.  So we just spent some time playing inside with cousins and hanging out, doing laundry, and packing up.

It was another great summer vacation for the books.  We are all missing the beach so much and finding it hard to get the pep back in our step!  Can't believe next year we will be a family of four.  

The baby countdown is officially on.  Time to tackle that to do list!
