Today is our last full day at the beach. As I type this, all 3 kids are napping. We decided this morning that we'd head out to the beach and stay as long as the kids could hang. About 2:15pm, it was clear that we needed to head back to the beach house and after a long walk over the board walk and fajita nachos, the kids were asleep without our help. A&A&C have loved the beach and there have been times where we have just been able to sit and watch as the kids play. I have even had time to read a book! Haven't done that since before A&A were born. As we were planning the trip this year, it crossed my mind that maybe it was time we go to Florida and see some white sand and blue water, but reality is that the kids will not remember this and they have had a blast playing in the sand and salt water and we had a 4 hour road trip opposed to 10. We did visit the Texas State Aquarium yesterday in Corpus and the kids loved it. We timed everything right, got there early, and got great seats for the dolphin show, touched the sting rays, and meandered through the many glass tanks of the aquarium. Austin and Avery were really excited about seeing the sharks and as they swam right by them in the large salt water tanks, A&A stared amazed.
Got to love spending time with the fam. Uncle Steve and Aunt Candice have been a huge help, and of course Toppe and Grandpa are great at entertaining. We are already planning next year.
