Weekend Getaway- Dauphin Island, AL

Monday, November 12, 2018

Monday. After a full day of traveling with babies yesterday I'm actually really enjoying this quite  Monday morning at home. AP is napping, I've got coffee in hand and a fire going. Every year after football season Barrett and I try to plan a long weekend getaway alone. Last year we didn't get to go because I was pregnant and felt like doing a whole lot of nothing but lying in bed. This year it just worked out where we got to take a long weekend to the beach kiddos included. We had a grand time. 

Every summer we plan a beach trip or two. Usually we go to Destin, FL or Orange Beach, AL. Destin is our favorite and Barrett has a yearly conference in Orange Beach so we make a family trip out of that. We have never been to Dauphin, Island so we weren't exactly sure what to expect. Have you ever read the book Safe Haven? I love the movie as well. That's the vibe I got. Completely small town and a low key feel. It was amazing. Our beach house was feet from the water, there were very few restaurants and the weather was perfect.  We ate at a little taco place numerous times. It was the kiddos favorite thing we did! We had the best time and can't wait to go back. 

Sharing some snaps from our trip. I had all the intentions to bring my cameras for pictures and videos but realized about an hour in I forgot them- along with a few other necessities but we made it work.
