Corpus Weekend

Today is Nancy's birthday. That means that for just over a month we are the same age and all the usual "old man" jokes are banned!!! To celebrate, we spent a long weekend in Corpus Christi. Here are some of the photo highlights.

On Friday night we found a fantastic playground off Ocean Drive. Here's Gavin playing on the pirate shipChecking the form for the 2:30 at Aintree? Wonder if he picked a winner.

On Friday evening we swam at Corpus beach and then ate at the famously haunted Blackbeards. Afterwards we went for a lovely walk along the seawall. We watched the boats come and go, enjoyed the serenity of the water and watched families fishing off the harbor walls. It was such a nice walk we did it again on Saturday evening.

Gavin taking on the challenge of cupcakes, and about to catch some waves. We played so hard that he fell asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow each night.

Playing in the waves. On Saturday we drove from Corpus down to Padre Island, then up to Mustang Island. We took the ferry from Port Aransas and drove up to Rockport before looping back to Corpus. The best beach we found was at the Padre Island National seashore, and we spent hours and hours playing in the waves - especially when Gavin discovered how funny it was to push daddy into them (exactly as I used to do with my dad). We went back on Sunday morning and spent another few hours playing - good times!!!
