Spencer’s 18!! (Gulf Shores pt. II)

Our June birthdays are all over.  Drew is now 9 (June 8th), Mitchell is now 15 (June 14th), and Spencer is now 18 (June 18).  We got to celebrate them all in Gulf Shores!  Spencer is now legal and Mitchell will be getting his driver’s permit!  Lord help Joe and me!

Gulf Shores 2011

I’m so lucky to have a sister and awesome bro in law that live on the beach.  Last year they were hit with the oil spill, so their season wasn’t all that great!  This year it’s rockin and rollin again!

We got to Gulf Shores on Tuesday.  We are staying at Phoenix V.  They own a 4 bedroom condo here.  It’s beautiful!  It has a pool, lazy river, slide, and direct access to the beach.  We are having a blast.  We will sadly be leaving this paradise on Sunday.

Tuesday was Stephanie and Mitchell’s birthday, so of course we celebrated with two cakes!

My bro in law got out the pontoon boat today and we rode around all day.  The kids had a blast sliding down into the lagoon…I think my mom and dad did too…They are going to be sore tomorrow!
