It's pretty warm here in Arkansas despite it being mid-december! We typically have really cold winters. This weather reminds me of the Phineas and Ferb episode where they create winter in the middle of summer and call it S'Winter. Yeah that. I suppose I should just zip my lips and be thankful it's warmer than I anticipated considering the kids' winter essentials are neatly wrapped and hiding under the tree for Christmas.

While thinking about S'Winter, I was reminded of our trip to Dauphin Island this past summer with Justin's (our) family. It was Grayson's first time to visit the beach and he loved playing in the sand, chasing the seagulls and of course eating all the food. Honestly, the food on the island wasn't that great. It was okay but I wouldnt feel comfortable giving recommendations. There are a few little produce stands and a grocery store a few minutes inland, so I would recommend buying groceries and cooking at your beach house instead. I would definitely recommend taking the ferry from the island to Fort Morgan. We took the ferry twice and the first time we did it was earlier in the day and super hot. This didn't go over well with the little ones. We caught the last ride back to the island that evening and it was much more comfortable and enjoyable as it wasn't  so hot. We also saw dolphins! Well, I didn't but Justin did and that counts in my book! The Bellingrath Gardens and Home was beautiful! Definitely check it out if you're planning a trip to the Dauphin Island area.

While I long for colder days, these pictures remind me to just be thankful because It'll be super cold before too much longer and then I'll be complaining and wishing for warmer days... Isn't that how it usually goes?
