We left Vicksburg on Saturday morning and were in Gulf Shores, Alabama by late afternoon. Gulf Shores is our favorite beach destination and we went with our favorite vacation buddies, the Hamiltons (who are now also the Walkers and the Bortzfields). We grew up vacationing together and though we've added a few to the original 8 we still love being together. The last time we were all together at the beach was 3 years ago. We had such a great week!
