Corpus Christi with JA & V!

For Memorial Day weekend, Hubs & I trekked down to Corpus Christi for a beach trip with Jared, Angela and Victoria.  We were also going to be going to watch Aaron Watson while we were there.  Beach time and a good concert??  Count us in!!
Hubs & I stopped in Fredericksburg on the way for a quick bite to eat at a local barbecue restaurant.  It was so good but we didn't stay for long before heading back onto the road.

We were so excited to finally see signs for Corpus Christi!

And a beautiful sunset behind us.

The next morning we woke up fairly early and headed out to a local spot for breakfast.

We ordered some tasty omelettes and Victoria ordered some waffles.  *All accompanied with some coffee!*  The waffles looked delicious but the batter tasted a little sour.  We weren't so sure about it so they brought her out french toast instead.  And, that my friends, was delicious!

That day we travelled to 2 different beaches.  They were both part of the state park so we had to pay an entry fee but it was well worth it!  One was much less crowded and the other had access to bathrooms and a gift shop that had snacks and such.  And I know one little girl who didn't care where we were as long as we were at the beach.  She was excited!!! :)

I think Hubs has a future career in sand castle building!  What do you think??

The waves were nice and the boys took full advantage of catching them while the girls caught some sun rays and relaxed at the edge of the water.  :)

With a little sand pedicure.  ;)

Later we went out to the car to enjoy some sandwiches.  These birds kept flocking to us so we fed them some of our left over bread.  They went WILD over the bread!!  As soon as you stopped feeding them they sat so still and we thought it was so funny pretending to make them 'sit'.

The highlight of the end of our day was Hubs and Jared digging their feet down deep into the sand.  So much so that it reached their knees and Victoria suddenly seemed MUCH taller next to them.  ;)

By the time we left, Victoria could hardly keep her eyes open!  It didn't take long for her to completely pass out in the car!
IMG_5301
And we laughed at our surprise that house keeping had left us with Victoria's stuffed animals all propped up on the bed!

We took some quick showers and then headed out to a local seafood restaurant for dinner!

The next morning we woke up and headed out to visit the U.S.S. Lexington.  Unfortunately, the towels never dried out over night so we improvised by hanging them on the top of the car.  We looked a little crazy...but it worked!  And the car got a little more shade in the middle of that hot sun.  ;)

We walked around the beach area for a little while and spotted a jellyfish that we could examine a little more closely.  Eeek!
IMG_5365
And finally, we headed to the beach for a little afternoon swim!  We didn't stay too long because unfortunately, most of us had fried like lobsters the day before.  Whoops!

Last but not least we came back to the hotel to shower, grab a bite to eat and then head to Aaron Watson!!!  We were so excited to see his concert.  :)

I enjoyed some yummy drinks at dinner.  I went for the italian margarita. Yumm-O!

We loved being able to sit out on the lawn...far enough away from the chaos but still close enough to enjoy the music and fun.

After Aaron Watson finished playing, we walked over to his T-Shirt stand to get some shirts and say hello to one of our favorite Country Artists!  It was a long wait but well worth it.  We enjoyed our chit-chat with him!

Gotta love the photo-bomber!!

Unfortunately the next morning the fun came to an end and we had to pack up and head home...we were not excited about that!
IMG_5507
Hubs & I extended our fun a litttttle bit longer with a small pit stop in San Antonio for lunch.  Worth it!! Love Casa Rio.  YUMMMM!
