The Grand Hotel

Two days after Joel and I got back from North Carolina, we all hopped in the car again and drove south to the Grand Hotel in Fairhope for the weekend leading up to July 4th. We had gone the year before, but only for a night, and could not wait to get back down there again! This was such a fun little 3 day weekend trip! There is so much for the kids to do. They never got bored!

Smores are always a big hit! Some lady caught herself on fire and that took this night to a whole new level of fun! Ha! She was fine by the way! :)

We had to dodge a few rain showers here and there, but we made the best of it. The kids were really into playing "family UNO" this summer, so we played a few rounds of that while we waited out the storm.

And of course the staff at the Grand Hotel is always prepared for anything. They had crafts for the kids when it rained and other fun activities the entire weekend.

I have to document Harrison going down the slide, because it was the only time he was able to do it all weekend long. They are serious sticklers about the height requirement for the slide and Harrison was just a small smidge below it. He tried mightily with several different life guards throughout the weekend, and he finally found one that would let him go! Unfortunately, right after this, they did a life guard switch and the next one wasn't so nice. This is the only thing that is completely ridiculous at the Grand. It really is not a big slide.

 They still had a lot of fun at the pool!

 We also rented a sea doo one afternoon and ALL the boys had fun with it!

The shooting of the cannon was the highlight of Hudson's afternoon every single day.

We had some good meals during the weekend too. We stayed on the property some and left the property as well. Breakfast 2 of the days was at Warehouse Bakery & Donuts. Seriously, the best donuts I have ever had! I think Birmingham needs one of these for sure!

It was a great weekend trip! We can't wait to go back!
