Beach Vacation!

Last Friday we left and headed to the coast.  Port Aransas to be specific.  We had such a great time.  Joey's Mom, and Frank were also there for the week.  The kids loved having them to play with, and Joey and I enjoyed having them with us as well.   We were also able to spend a couple of days with my best friend and her family.  They live near Corpus Christi. 

The week was a blast, we loved just relaxing on the beach, the boat rides, in the bay, and most of all the beach combing.  I think the kids loved hunting for shells, crabs, or whatever other treasures they found, the most.  Luke was stung by a jellyfish one day while swimming in the bay, but he handled it like a champ, and it didn't slow him down much at all.  Considering as sick as I've been, I did pretty good.  At least during the day.  I think I got sick every evening, but usually not until we were back at the house after dinner.  There was only one day that the kids couldn't get in the water, not due to oil, but due to the seaweed, and critters.  Tuesday so much seaweed was washing up, and it was bringing with it crabs, stingrays, scorpion fish, and also baby sharks were pretty abundant as well.  The kids enjoyed the day though just catching crabs, and fish.  We ended up leaving the beach and going out in the bay on Franks boat.  The kids could swim in the bay, plus the dolphin watching in the bay was amazing!

The kids loved the beach, but I have to say that no vacation can compare with Disney World, and we are all loving forward to going back soon.  In fact, as soon as I find good prices on our flights for next year I'm booking them!

Here are some pictures from the trip!
