This weekend was my (35th) birthday and while Chris and I were planning on having a couples weekend away, we just felt too guilty. The past 5 weekends our family has been doing something that kept us from being a “unit”.
Wendys, Destin, Gainesville, Disney, Atlanta….my spouse and I traded trips apart for the past 5 weeks! So instead we decided to cut off our alone time for family time and took our first trip out to Dauphin Island with the kids this weekend since summer started.
For those that are going, make sure you bring $5 cash because they started charging for the parking lot.
I learned a few things.
One, the beach is not exempt from a tantrum.
And two, Phoenyx was not all about the sand.
He played in it but he kept having to go wash off his hands. He isn’t a fan of “dirty”. Which doesn’t surprise me because at home he washes his hands continuously while he eats. And of course all he did was follow around his big sister the entire time.
Here are a few pictures of our family fun weekend!
What did you do this weekend?
