Gulf Shores--at 22 weeks!

This week we went on a rockin' trip to Gulf Shores. We went with two other families who are close friends of ours. Of course, we had a blast, but with my prego skin being slightly more sensitive in the sun, i did accidentally overdo it one day and got a pretty burned. Thankfully now all is well and it's turned to tan now :) Here are a few pics from the trip.

view from our back door. one morning i woke up to spend a little quiet time out on the balcony. look at the beautiful rainbow that was greeting me.

Scott's first cup of coffee--that he liked! This is a HUGE step, considering he's never liked coffee nor would he ever really try it again after the one time he did try it plain and almost gagged. I guess french vanilla creamer did the trick. I think he's hooked now!

Here i am getting some baby experience :)
This is Tucker Froehlich, son of our friends Jen and Chris. He is SUCH a good baby--seriously! It kind of spoiled us, considering he's only six weeks old and was a trooper the whole time! He's definitely made for the beach because he literally chillaxed the whole time! He even wanted to feel the kicking that was going on by his soon to be best friend!

One morning we had breakfast, praise and worship on the beach. We aimed to be down there closer to sunrise, but with nine people, it was more like 9am :) It was still so awesome!

The boys being weird.....

Ah, that's more like it! So handsome! (Chris and Robbie too, of course)

And here we are before and at dinner one night-- in all our sunburned glory!

TCBY after dinner one night--a Croxall family tradition! This is Jen F., Jen C, Anna and Chris.

Now this is one rockin' tent :) They were our neighbors on the beach one day....and obviously true Hog fans!

There are lots more pics, but the majority of the great ones are on the other girls' cameras. But, we had a wonderful time and it was a great place to ring in my 22nd week! :)

I am glad yall had a good time! Gulf Shores is one of my favorite place. In fact, we went when I was about 17 weeks pregnant, I think!

The (1st) picture of you on the balcony with the beach in the background is one of my favorites. Reminds me of a certain beach trip I (we) took when I was pregnant with P. A very special time....AND YOU look amazing...and by the looks of it, baby Fincher is growing amazingly too! I am going to go ahead and call that picture as one of my favorite prego years to come you'll look back and have lots of memories from such a great shot. love you!

Allison you look great and I too like that picture that Amanda mentioned, I like the picture of you and Scott, I think going to dinner.
I'm so glad your mom had you two(3) to spend her birthday with, as some sister in law didn't call and wish her a happy birthday wish. She is truly blessed to have daugthers like you and your sisters!
We had a great time last night, we had dinner with your mom, Anne & John. It was great to catch up with all. We look forward to seeing you all sometime??? We'll have to plan a trip to come to your neighborhood I guess.
Hey, I hear your going to Denver by chance is it going to be when we come thru? That would be fun!

And how can I forget, our newest neice is so beautiful, Kaiya, I know you can't wait to see her too.
Love Aunt Betty
