Life’s A Beach

29 06 2011

After the wedding, the lpod packed up and headed down to Corpus Christi to see Scott’s family. CJ got his first taste of a warm beach (Seattle beaches in February do not count, sorry). He loved every second of it! First things, first though. Gotta get some hugs and kisses from Grammy.

And what in the world is cousin Maddie doing? That looks like fun. He can’t wait to be a big kid and do that!!

He just enjoyed sitting on the beach watching her catch the waves.

And kicked his feet nonstop in the sand. I’m sure he got some nice exfoliation on his heels.

the waves are funny

Cousin Maddie helped him figure out how to dig in the sand and build sand castles.

Most of all, I think he really loved the feel of hot, humid, salty air. I know I did. The weather was perfect down there.


We went to a big Father’s Day dinner at Virginia’s on the Bay. It’s just over at the ferry. Which Scott and I rode at Christmas. As a kid, I thought that was SO amazing. And huge. And the longest ride ever. And then I moved to Washington State.

We spent the rest of our time hanging out at Grammy & Gramps’ place.

who keeps kissing my neck?

Where CJ got a new piano, a dump truck, and the coolest shape sorter! He loves all of his new toys.

i love my piano, grammy!

Playing some pre-dinner tunes for everyone.

An almost full family shot. We were missing Amy & her family – they had to head out for Stewart’s birthday celebration a little early. Next time we’ll be sure to get the whole fam!

almost the whole clan

Super fun trip to Corpus! Now back to San Antonio for some fun with my childhood friends!
