We ended up deciding on Orange Beach, Alabama which is about 4 hours from here. Our condo is ground floor which is what we wanted so we don't have to cart kids up and down elevators. It has 5 pools, one a kiddie pool, BBQ grill area, an outside snack shop and is on the beach. Dh and I haven't been on vacation for 12 years so we're very excited. We took the boys to the beach in Mississippi alot last year and they both loved it. David's birthday is the day before we leave and Derek's birthday is the week after so we are going to celebrate their birthdays at the beach, no party drama to deal with.
