Mommy and Daddy Getaway!

We are on our way home from our first ever baby getaway!  Steve and I have not been away from the girls ever...actually, in all honesty I hardly everr leave the girls at all, even for an hour.  And Steve and I probably have maybeee three date nights a year if that.  All part of the financial sacrifice so that I can stay home with the girls, and I wouldn't have it any other way.  

We are fortunate to a have a beach house to stay at in Gulf Shores that has been in the family for years.  About six months ago we decided to plan a trip for the end of October with some of Steve's family from Ohio.  They flew into Fort Lauderdale on Monday and spent two days with us first at our house to spend time with the girls.  

Wednesday morning I dropped the girls off with my mom, and the four of us drove the 10 hours up to the beach.  That drive which I normally despise was the most relaxing thing ever solo!

We spent the week relaxing, sleeping in...laying on the beach and eating and drinking our way through Gulf Shores.  We had the best time and it was much needed.  
 Our first day there we bought a bunch of local craft beers and laid out all day and had our own little beer tasting.  That night we were supposed to go have a steak dinner at my grandparents house, but my cousins baby came a week early so they took off up to go see her and dropped the steaks off anyway on the way.  So we stayed home and grilled and had nice night at the house.

Our third day we went to show them pirates cove, where they have the bestttt bushwhackers and burgers and where Jimmy Buffet wrote the song Cheeseburger in Paradise :)

On the drive back from there we came across the prettiest cotton field and pulled over to get a closer look at take some pictures.

Day four we went to the Flora Bama, a bar on the Alabama Florida line for some drinks and oysters.
Always a must see.

We finished our last night with dinner at the Acme Oyster house which is originally from New Orleans for our last seafood meal.

After five days away from my babies I am dying to get back and hug their little necks.  We are definitely feeling recharged!  Which is good since I have so much to do this week!! Finish Halloween costumes, carve pumpkins, watch all our Halloween movies and decorate our car for our church trunk or treat.  Excited for all the fun things we have ahead!
