Happy at the hotel.
My camera was on the wrong setting but you get the idea. :)
Our boys haven't been to the beach, at least not since they were old enough to remember, so this was a very new and exciting adventure for us!! Stacey III did mention that the thought the ocean was supposed to be blue, like in Nemo (his point of reference for all things ocean). Have to love those Texas beaches!! ;) But truthfully, we couldn't have cared less, we were just excited for sand and waves!
Had to include this picture because it is the only one that I got of the twins first impression of the beach. Lots of tears and clinging to Mom and Dad for dear life!
Shannon's family owns the house we stayed in and it sits on the canal, offering the best of both worlds! The beach was fun but it was also really nice to be able to rinse off the salt and sand and come back to the calm canal and chill out.
Nick kindly taking Wyatt for a spin in the canoe
I did take a few pictures of Shannon and Wendi and I at the beach but they are MIA, because I burned them. Yowza! You know how you think you're sort of working the fedora and your beach blown hair really isn't all that bad? And maybe the swim dress you bought this season (due to your body completely betraying you at 35) is sort of cute?...And then you see a picture of yourself and the overflowing humility that immediately follows crushes any such fleeting thoughts from your summer psyche? Me neither, just checking. :)
