This week we travelled to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a family vacation. My parents and their best friends took all of us (my family, my sister and bro in law, and their daughters and families)to the beach and it was so much fun!! Tate especially loved playing with Alyson's little girl, Sophie. They are almost a year apart and only see each other a few times a year but when they get together you would think they played together all the time. Grant also liked the beach and was not afraid to go into the water. He awoke every morning at 5 am and pointed to the beach. Luckily, my sweet dad or David would take him on morning walks down the beach. We just love getting together with the Mendrop family. We have known them for almost 25 years and have shared many vacations and memories with them. It is so great that each time we get together there is always plenty to talk about and alot to laugh about. Thanks Mimi and Daddo for the fun trip, we had a blast!!!!
