Not Fancy, Just Famous 4th!

 Hey friends!
We went to the beach, went to the lake, went to Savannah, moved, and came back to the lake...

We headed to Destin for the 4th with four of our best friends!!!  It was wonderful!!!

Our 4th of July beach trip began with lunch here
Dobbs BBQ
is a must if you're riding through Dothan!

The coleslaw is too die for - and its served with a sliced pickle on top - yum
And if you're lucky, Mr. Dobbs will come by and show you a magic trick!

 We headed to the grocery store upon arrival
We stocked the fridge with plenty of fluids!

Grocery shopping is haaard work!

Really hard!

For dinner we headed Elmo's - a place that serves all you can eat crab legs
My brother and his girlfriend were in Destin, too - so glad they got to come to dinner with us!
Aren't they cute?

My brother ate 4 buckets of crab legs - and he has 0% body fat

our friends enjoying the live entertainment
btw, what in the world is the dougie?
I'm old

Is this not the most fantastic sign?!?
Not fancy, Just famous
Love it!

The next night we headed out to the Red Bar in Grayton Beach, which is seriously one of my favorite restaurants!  Sadly, I forgot my camera, which may have been a good thing since it was more of a party than a dinner!

After dinner we headed to Bud & Alleys - I seriously want to live in Seaside!

The night of the 4th we decided to grill out
We sent the boys to the grocery store again for supplies - do you like our style (putting the men to work?!?)  They came back with hamburgers, chicken, french fries, potato salad, regular salad, corn on the cob, apple pie and ice cream - obviously, we didn't go hungry!

It was so nice to sit outside and watch the sunset!

T was relaxed :)

Our very festive chef!!!

I enjoyed some reading time before we started to grill out.
Nothing beats Harry Potter and a Blue Moon!!!

Such a fun time!

The corn on the cob was delicious!!!


We enjoyed such a fun and relaxing time with some wonderful friends - we could not have asked for a better 4th! 

We got back Tuesday and left for Savannah Wednesday to move!
I was so thankful my parents came down to help us because it was a JOB!
We are also thankful that our house sold, especially in the market!  We will miss our little house though! It was a great first home!

Our Uhaul packed and ready to head to Americus!
Our stuff barely fit - How do we have so much?!?

Anyway, hope everyone had a great 4th!!!

We love Destin. Joel's family has a beach house in SanDestin. Are you familiar? Everytime we go I feel like I am living in a bubble of paradise. Looks like you had a very similar expierence.

Good luck with all of your unpacking!

I love Red Bar! My parents' place is on 30A, and I seriously love that area. Jealous! We skipped it for the 4th because we were exhausted from traveling the 2 weekends before that.

Glad you had a great 4th and extra glad that your house sold-I know you are too! We just got back from Destin and had a great trip as well-so many yummy places to eat. We also found Smith's Antique Mall, which was so much fun to peruse. You should check it out next time you go.

Blue moon comes in a can?! I had no idea!

I need to try that BBQ place next time I go there! I have lots of family that live there so I'm always excited to visit. Looks like you had a fun trip! LOVE the Red Bar!

Kat said...

Wow, that sounds beyond perfect. Looks like you had a super fun time. Love the pic of all the guys sound asleep, so typical yet hilarious! :) I ate seafood every chance I got when I was home in Nova Scotia. I am surprised haven't grown lobster claws for hands.
