Sweet Home Alabama: Gulf Shores

It’s been a week since we locked up our home back in Sarasota and hit the road in this RV life full time! Life has just been an absolute whirlwind around here, but the best kind! Since we have been in Alabama since last Thursday, we have had the chance to see so many incredible places, spend so much time as a family, and eat at some of the most delicious places in town. I would say it’s been one amazing week! I’m here to fill you in on all that we have conquered this week in Gulf Shores, Alabama so that you can hit the road & join us! (Not kidding, come on! 😉 )

EAT: LuLu’s Gulf Shores, Alabama

We DID it. We made it to Gulf Shores, Alabama & we are so happy that this is the first stop on our journey! The town is absolute perfection. We are right along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico (and are joking a lot that it looks like home!) But the beaches are stunning, the weather is just right, and the people could not be sweeter. Southern hospitality at it’s finest around here. Speaking of impeccable hospitality, we had the treat of dining out at LuLu’s Gulf Shores for lunch & cannot wait to share it with you!

Why We Loved Disney On Ice: Tampa

Dreams do come true. You know, the dreams made of massive cotton candy, your favorite Disney songs + characters, and Olaf snow cones. THOSE DREAMS. Well, they certainly came true for us last night as we attended Disney on Ice in Tampa, Florida. To say that my kids were mesmerized would be a total understatement. Their awe made this mama heart so happy & of course I enjoyed the beauty and the fun of the show as well. I’m excited to share some of the details of the night with you so you know what to expect if you are considering heading to the show yourself!

Our Trip To Ellijay, Georgia

Traveling is one of my favorite things to do! No matter how crazy it can get (especially with kids), there is nothing quite like getting to see and experience a new place. Between the 10 hour drive, getting lost, driving up mountains that our little sedan should never have tried, and my kids being a part of #teamnosleep all week – we still had a BLAST. I absolutely loved Ellijay and the beautiful cabin we stayed in! We also headed over to Helen which was about an hour and a half away which is the most adorable little German inspired town! This was definitely a Christmas that we will never forget! I hope you enjoy the photos!

Making The Best Of Our Disney Vacation

There is always wonderful memories to be made at Disney – no matter if you are evacuated for a hurricane or not! As many of ya’ll know, we were right at the beginning of our week long trip to Disney World (which is a tradition for us each October) when Hurricane Matthew became a real threat to the Orlando area. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short as we were evacuated from Fort Wilderness Campgrounds – which hasn’t happened in 10 years – so we are a part of Disney history now! Despite the extreme shortening of our vacation, we managed to get some fun in while we were there & I want to share with you some tips for planning your next Disney World vacay. I’ll be praying there is no hurricanes for you! 😉

Animal Kingdom For Babies & Toddlers

Deciding when to bring your kids to Disney World & figure out just which park will be a good fit for their age group can be a tricky task. It’s absolutely no surprise that we love Disney around here and that we have no fear when it comes to bringing our little people along with us. If you are new to my blog, you will have to take me at my word, but if you know us. Well, then you know. The obsession is real. We had a blast spending the day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom this February and I wanted to share it with you as well as some tips to doing the park with littles and the best rides and attractions to take them on!
