He also looked at me like I was crazy when I told him to get into the hole I just dug so I could bury his legs. We finally coaxed him in:
Drake loved the sand too! Way more than I thought he would. Brook was supposedly taking a whole bunch of pictures of Drake in his little hole with Justins phone, but instead we ended up with 7 of these short video clips. The pics would have been great, but at least we got something to remember his first time playing in the sand:
Mae and Brook weren't nearly as into playing the sand right away like us boys were. Mae was more interested in finding her cousins who were already down here. After we finished playing on the beach we unloaded all our gear, purchased fishing licenses online, and dumped the kids with their grandparents and headed out to Bahama Bobs for some food!
This crayfish sandwich would have been my second choice:
The shrimp sandwich was my third choice. Brook and Justin were pretty embarrased of my taking pics of their food, but I am kind of used to being looked at funny by other people in public.
So there you go, the highlights from day one of gulf shores trip. Tomorrow I promised to let Brook sleep and I will watch the kids instead of going fishing early in the morning (the tides are bad for Thursday morning anyways....dont tell Brook, she thinks I am just being a great husband sacrificing my first morning of fishing for her.) It will be weeks later before she reads this and I will already be a hero husband and father for this whole trip at least!
