Last week we spent a week in TX at the beach with my family and had an awesome time. It was the first "real" vacation Ricky and I had been on in quite a while and of course, it was Little Ricky's first vacation. And as you will see from the pictures, he's a fan of vacations now!
We spent most of the week lounging on the beach, playing in the water and the sand with Little Ricky and Little Man, but we also took some time out to shop and eat seafood. It was such an amazing, relaxing, fun time and words can't do it justice.
But maybe pictures (lots and lots of pictures!) can!
We flew in to Austin where my alma mater, St. Edward's University, is so we took a quick driving tour through the campus and stopped off at the theatre where I spent so much of my college time.
Cute cousins playing in the sand. They LOVE each other as you can see from this next pic.
Little Ricky's first experience with a kite.
And now for a few things I learned on the trip...
I love all of my sweet readers, but there's not a chance in hell I'm going to let you see me in a swimsuit. So here's a picture of me hiding behind a boogie board with my skinny sister. (Seriously, why is she hiding???)
What I learned from the boogie boards? Sunscreen the BACK of your legs, because they will burn BADLY while floating along on the board. Ouch.
How many people does it take to put up a 60 second pop-up tent? One engineer and one arts administrator. And it took longer than 60 seconds!!!
Trying new food is fun!
We LOVE the beach!
