So you've decided to check out the Alabama Gulf Coast on your next vacation since it's an ideal vacation spot for Hendricks County families. Great! You've made an excellent choice!
While you're there, you have to eat, right? And the kids aren't going to entertain themselves (at least mine won't). So where's a good spot for families to get a delicious bite to eat and for the kids to have fun while you're in the Gulf Shores, Alabama, area?
I'm so glad you asked.
Among my list of family-friendly can't-miss places to visit while you're at the Alabama Gulf Coast is LuLu's at Homeport Marina in Gulf Shores.
I had the rare opportunity on April 6 to be interviewed by Rob Kendall of WYRZ 98.9 FM radio in Brownsburg to discuss They're Our Kids on the "Central Indiana Today" show.
We talked about They're Our Kids, parenting in general, Macaroni Kid - Hendricks, the Kiwanis Club of Danville, the pros and cons of social media, the education system, and Danville schools.
I even talked a little bit about myself if you're interested in learning more about me.
We recently discovered that the Alabama Gulf Coast is an ideal vacation spot for Hendricks County families. One of the factors that makes it an ideal area is how easy it is to get there from here.
The Alabama Gulf Coast, which includes the cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, is about 781 miles south of Hendricks County, with the vast majority of the route taking place on Interstate 65. Families can expect 12 hours of driving time, plus time for eating, using the restroom, and stretching.
We learned a few things on our recent trip to the Alabama Gulf Coast, so I thought I'd share those pearls of wisdom with you.
Villagers, if you are looking for a place to spend a family vacation at any point throughout the year, I have a recommendation for you: visit the Alabama Gulf Coast.
We just returned from a wonderful Spring Break vacation in Orange Beach, Alabama -- which sits on the Alabama-Florida border and adjoins Gulf Shores, Alabama -- and I have come to the conclusion that the Alabama Gulf Coast is an ideal vacation spot for Hendricks County families.
Here are a few reasons why.
As a society, we spend a lot of time and effort tearing each other down.
We talk behind each other's backs, we sabotage each other, we bully each other, we say and post cruel and hurtful things about each other, and we celebrate when people crack under the social pressure or when they fail at something that means a lot to them.
Fans of one sports team revel in the failures of rival sports teams. (I'm guilty of that, as my New England Patriots fan of a brother-in-law can attest.) Commenters on virtually any online news story post hateful things about the subject of the article. I've heard some rotten comments from parents and coaches at youth sporting events, and it only takes a minute or two in a local chatter group on Facebook to see how heartlessly nasty we can be to each other.
But about the time that my faith in humanity starts to wane, someone like my daughter's assistant coach does something to restore it and demonstrates the power of praise.
