I know I just blogged about our winter, but there was one lovely day last February that deserves its own post. Alex, Afton, and I invited our dear friends Tom and Lucy to join us for a leisurely day in one of our favorite littles towns: Fairhope, Alabama. Of course Ocean Springs is our favorite little town, but we were needing a change of scenery, and Fairhope was just the ticket. We started our day with a relaxing walk along the pier.
Then we meandered into downtown...
...and did a little browsing.
The beaten path was getting a little crowded, so we took a detour and strolled through some pretty neighborhoods.
This place is so full of charming little details!
As tends to happen every time we're in Fairhope, we ended up wandering over to The Grand in Point Clear.
It is such a peaceful place to explore.
Tom was kind (and brave) enough to snap a family photo for us! And yet he somehow managed not to be in any pictures himself.
We ended our day with a delicious dinner at the Wash House Restaurant. I would not have agreed to go there with a baby in tow if I had realized how fancy it was, but I'm glad I didn't know, because I would not have wanted to miss this meal. It was SO GOOD. And Afton behaved beautifully, so all was well. :)
Remembering this day is making me want to go back soon!
