We drove to Orange Beach in August to spend some time at the beach. We took Jack to Galveston last Thanksgiving, but they had a freak cold front and we couldn't spend any time playing at the beach. We were so excited to take him this summer! He loved it! Like most kids, he liked the pool just as much. The kid loved jumping in the water and we let him do it without his puddle jumper. It was probably his favorite part of the trip. We have some great videos of this. On the way home we spent a night in Memphis and discovered a fun playground along the Mississippi River.
