Family Weekend in Corpus Christi

Last weekend we went to Corpus Christi for some beach time. We went with some of our very best friends here in San Antonio, which was extra fun for Will because it meant he had buddies to play with at the hotel and beach!

It was a short trip; we drove down on Friday afternoon and stayed till Saturday afternoon, but we made sure to pack in the fun! We ate dinner in downtown Corpus at Executive Surf Club (I recommend the fish 'n chips!!!) and then we went back to our hotel where Will got to stay up late swimming in their pool. 

Saturday morning we packed up and headed over to South Padre Island to spend the day at the beach! These beaches are so unique--you can drive your car right onto the sand! (You can pick up a permit to do so at any local gas station.) Although it looked pretty ghetto, it sure beat lugging all our stuff from the car to beach! We also rented a tent/cabana thing for some shade for the day and we were set!

I love this picture of Will and Clara; it depicts our day of splashing around perfectly!

Will went boogie boarding for the first time! Here's his epic ride:

By the end of the day, we were all pretty tuckered out!


  1. You do such fun activities with your kids!

  2. I think a nap on the beach like Clara sounds like a great idea! Looks like you guys had a blast.
