First Family Vacation

We travelled to Gulf Shores, Alabama for our first family vacation.  We drove down there and Colton did really well in the car.  We were quite surprised when we opened the door to our condo.  It was really beautiful and overlooked the ocean.  Absolutely perfect!  We spent alot of time at the pool, visited the Alabama Culf Coast Zoo, and went to Alligator Alley.  We spent some time at the outlet mall and visited every restaurant ... well not really but it sure felt that way!  I loved it!
