Beach Week 2014

We just got back from beach week! Such a nice break from reality.

Of course, we started off the trip with drinks on the beach.
 Brody was a big part of beach week this year because it was his first time! We had a good time calling him Pharrell because he looked like him with this big hat.
 Lots of pictures were taken of these two cuties.
 Of course, the food was incredible food. On their night, MG and Ryan made Red Lobster-style biscuits, grilled squid and crab cakes.
 They followed all of that up with Bang Bang Shrimp. It was incredible!
 We ventured out one day and went to The Gulf for lunch. If you're ever in the area, you need to try it out. The food is good (the menu changes every day) and the atmosphere is very cool. 
 My mom had told us about a group of artists in Orange Beach near where we ate lunch, so we had to check it out. We got to watch one of the apprentices blow glass.
 Mom had me take pictures of her oyster stew. Here you go, mom.

 Here's our house for the week. It was the perfect size and arrangement for our family. We've already booked it for next year!
 Now, let's take a moment of silence for the outfit at McDonald's in Gulf Shores on our way home. Please tell me this isn't becoming a thing?
 When we got home, KT was all over us. I'm typing this blog this early because she howled all night long because she wanted to be with us. Needless to say, we weren't as appreciative. :-)

Wrap Up

I'm still having a hard time believing it's summer. Time is going so fast! 

My birthday was this week and we celebrated with dinner at Bravo! The special was salmon with pineapple mango salsa and candied bacon. The bacon wasn't all that special, but the fish and salsa was incredible. Paul and I split that for dinner along with a filet.
 Our new magazine came in this week! This is one of my favorite ones we have done. I've been pushing for Paul to make a few changes as far as how pages and ads are arranged and I think it makes a huge difference. We also focused on some things like recipes and pictorials, which we haven't done much of, that were really fun to put together.
 This weekend we also had fun right down the street from us at Jackson Streets Alive. It's a cyclovia, which essentially means they shut down a section of street to automobiles and it's opened up to any kind of human-powered transportation. There were plenty of bikes, games, roller skates, music, and food trucks. We had a lot of fun!
 KT, on the other hand, was at home sulking because the shades are getting in the way of her yard watching. We have an east facing house, so it gets really warm in the den in the afternoon. Such a hard life...
Here's to the rest of the weekend!
