Just so happened there was a big blow up water park out on the front lawn of the condo. I LOVE the Beach Club because they seriously have something for everyone! There is some big something planned for kids everyday! Usually an art camp daily in the afternoons. For the mamas and daddies, there is almost always something fun happening around the pool.
(Look at my baby girl... she is so brave! This is no small slide!!)
Anyway, I love it that despite the fact we are going to be here for about 2 weeks, they seem to have something new to do every day. thank you, Beach Club! (and yes, I can definitely hook you up, regarging what to do while in the Gulf Shores area, Gwen. We are experts! Inbox me at Facebook and we'll connect. We FB friends?! )
Baby girl was a little more tentative.
She kinda had to "wade" in, as they say. But it didn't take her long!
She was being toted up by CoCo in nothing flat!
And then she had to contemplate the ride down!
Gabbi is usually a little slow to try something new. But once she does it, she is the one who doesn't want to stop. Likely, this would be the same deal!
The first ride down is usually the worst. And the best... all in one fail swoop.
And before long the whole crew was going up and down the slide.
And eventually Miss Thang was even coming down all alone. Way to go, my sweet baby!
See why we love our babysitters so much? While we were with the big boys shopping, the babies were so well taken care of. And not only tended to, but also having so much fun!
Our babysitters definitely put our kiddos first. They will do whatever it is that makes them happy, regardless of what they actually want to do! You won't find them holed up in the condo, watching the soaps! And they will truck it in and out and in and out and in... as many times as necessary to give the girls a snack, a nap, a wet bathing suit change... whatever they want.
yea, we are pretty lucky in the babysitter department!
And now I have this brave little girl going up this big ol slide by herself. Yay, Gabbi Girl.
And this nut is going full blast down that sucker too!
So, thank you CoCo and KK for a day away for two mamas! We enjoyed hanging with the boys.
Aside from some shopping at the outlet mall, we also took them to the track for awhile for go cart racing, bumper boats, and lots of video games. Everything that they LOVE! (Look at Gabbi Girl's face below!!)
So, Saturday a the beach was a little differnet than teh way we spend most of them. Tomorrow, I think it'll be back to the beach/ poolside for us! Thanks, sitters, for giving us mamas a whole day off!
Same deal! 10 responses and a new post!
As for the peace sign tank,Becky, if you are serious, let me know and I'll see if there are more at Staci's store! We can hook a sista up! And stephleighjenkins, if I could get my stupid videos to upload (that first one was a miracle, I suppose), I'd post LOTS of things to entertain you... Gabbi with her head in the water, painting on the carpet, etc. But so far, no luck!? Oh, yeah. Traci, glad to have you back... but NO you will have to get the WHOLE story from someone about my second baby! Zhohn, you can always remember details of my life. Could you be a guest blogger and tell that story?! Just curious! Do you remember the story of Gabbi Girl?! No, Traci, no pregnancy... just another MIRACLE!!
