Brief Description:

Our annual family vacations first started as children. We always went to Gulf Shores every summer just for a few days. I guess I thought every family did that. As we grew up and made our own lives and families, vacation to the beach weren't always together. Until 2002, when I was almost killed in a train/car accident. The next summer we all begin going to the beach all together now with husbands and children in tow. Now every summer, our bond as a family grows stronger.
