beach week

 We have returned from our annual South Padre trip with my family. It was our 9th year to go. We flew this year instead of driving with our newborn and toddler. The kids did great on the flights and traveled well! 

Home for the week. 

 Sunday lunch at Pirate's Landing.

One of my favorite things was seeing my family love on my kids and help take care of them. Playing at the beach and pool, reading books and telling stories, tiny baby snuggles, singing lullabys...and Isabella loved seeing her cousins every day. She woke up saying: I go see my cousins?

David  brought sand castle tools this year, and after some youtube videos and practice made some pretty impressive sand art.

 The week flew by to me, faster than in past years.
It was different having a tiny baby and a toddler this year. It didn't fully feel like a vacation, but I got to take a long nap most days, do some reading, enjoy the water, and had a lunch date with Michael- and at this stage those are all wins in my book!

Sand castles with uncle luke.

She liked the pool better than the beach this year.

Sunset walk with Michael our last night.

There were a few things we didn't do we normally do, and we didn't spend near as much time down at the beach, but it was a good week. I can't believe it is June already and our Padre trip is in the books!
