Beach Bums

Last week, Jason's family treated us to a vacation in Gulf Shores. We stayed at the Beach Club Resort and it was awesome! Our routine stayed the same pretty much every day. Each day began with Shanna and I going to the gym. She definitely kept me motivated while on vacation:) Then it was beach time! Jason started calling me the "Sun Goddess", because I love to lay out. However, this year, I must admit it was harder to lay out there all day.

I read this book while I was there. It was a great read for the beach.
Two nights while we were there, we ate at The Beach Club Restaurant. The other night we went to Cosmos. We lucked up with a great restaurant by finding it on the Garmin. It turned out to be the perfect music, patio seating, excellent food, and a few little shops. You should check it out next time you are that way!

One night we were able to get the typical, family beach picture. Mrs. Jeana had mentioned it when we got down there and of course in the back of my mind I had already thought about it. It just so happened that everyone had the appropriate attire to make it work. This picture turned out quite well considering the security man made us get off the sand dunes. I mean come on...we were only going to be on them for just a second.

A funny moment at the beach was when this little friend decided to join Shanna while she was laying out:)

On Saturday, there were tar balls when we got to the beach. After lunch, you could see a little bit floating in the water. It was definitely starting to worsen, because when Jason and I put our chairs in the water, it was sticking to our feet, legs, and chair. When you would rub it, it would smear and I was afraid it would ruin my swimsuit! Therefore, we headed to the pool for the remainder of the day.
It was so nice for us all to be together. All of us living in different locations makes it hard for us to ever be together at the same time. Mostly we see each other during the big holidays. Thank you Mom and Dad St. Clair!!! We had a blast:)


  1. What a great looking family! The pictures didn't turn out too bad considering one was taken by a guy in a swimsuit with a drink in one hand and the camera in the other. The other picture was either taken by a 15 year old girl, or a guy with a baby in one hand and the camera in the other.

    On a side note... you were reading a book by a Weiner?


  2. Yeah, I thought so too. Seriously, we did pretty good considering those two facts. You are hilarious! About the book, not sure how to pronounce it. Hopefully the not so funny way, haha. Love you guys!
