Leaving for Vacation!!!

Our first (and only) vacation as a family of three commences tomorrow. We are driving 16 HOURS to Gulf Shores, AL. I can't wait! Mostly I am worried about my pregnant self being uncomfortable and staying awake and alert enough to help drive and also about entertaining a 20 month old boy in the back seat. Hmmmm....

We are planning on leaving Sat. morning at 3:00 am for our first leg of the trip. We are driving 12ish hours to Hattiesburg, MS and staying in an amazing Holiday Inn Hotel. We expect this 12 hour drive to be more like 15ish with a lot of stops for stretching, diaper changes, bathroom breaks, and hopefully a LONG lunch somewhere (park maybe?). This will get us to Hattiesburg around 6ish for dinner and an evening of swimming in their awesome pools!

The next morning, after breakfast, we will drive the last 3-4 hours to our condo. We are staying at the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club. It looks really pretty and on one side is the lagoon and on the other the beach! CAN'T WAIT!!!

We will stay there for 6 nights (although we get the 7th night free, its just not enough time for Adam to get back to work on Mon) and then start our trip back on Sat morning. This time we will drive to Springfield, MO to rest and then 3 more hours to get back home.

Pictures of our travels to come....
