Orange Beach 2012

I won't do alot of text about our trip to Orange Beach because I have alot of pictures.  And I know I'm guilty of getting a little lengthy.

Ryder did not love the actual beach, he had some sort of phobia about the sand getting on him and he didn't much like the ocean water either.  The pictures of him that I have were taken with bribes.

JM would not let it go making fun of me and my bubba keg.  He didn't understand why I needed something so large to drink out of.  I told him that I could fill it up at 8:00 before work and sip on it until 5 and it's still ice cold.  Plus, I'm not going through 5 water bottles a day.  What do you know, as soon as we get to the beach he buys himself one.

Somebody should have told Jeffrey this is what happens when you don't rub it in.  (Sorry Jeffrey, I know I told you I wouldn't).

And I guess this is what dad's consider putting on sunscreen good.  He would've turned out like Jeffrey if I hadn't come to the rescue.

This boy loves a cutie, I'm telling you right now.

Ryder's swimming trunks were starting to rub on his leg and give him a rash so we opted for pj bottoms and underwear later on in the week. 

When you gotta go....

He didn't love the beach, but he could live at the pool.  He was very upset each time we left.

Ryder got a little spicy at the Hangout and wanted to get up on the table and dance.  It was absolutely hilarious.  Wish I could remember the song they were playing, but they darkened the entire restaurant and were flashing different colored strobe lights on Ryder and he danced the entire song.  You could hear everyone in the restaurant laughing.


Madison wanted to get in on the action, so they took on a slow dance.

Ryder and his cousins.  He was so proud to have "the cousins" and that's how he kept referring to them.  "What are the cousins doing?"  "Let's go swim with the cousins"

While the guys were out golfing, we had the opportunity to get Ryder dressed and downstairs to get some pictures, they turned out cute.

They don't look old enough to be grandparents do they?
