Beach trip!

In desperate need of a vacation, some down-time, and some fun...Ty and I decided that we should all take a little family vacation to Corpus Christi. We had wanted to check out the Texas beaches for a while and finally the time seemed right! My parents and Emily came along for the trip and we had a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful time. We didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised by warm waters (Gulf of Mexico, so that we should have known!), lots of waves, and super soft sand! Gotta love those southern beaches...

This was also Tobin's first time on a real vacation now that he's on his schedule - more on that to come, but taking a 4 month old on vacation and a two month old on vacation are two very different things! All this to say, kiddo stuck to his schedule like a champ and did great! He napped on the beach listening to the waves in real time vs. his sound machine:)

Now for the fun part - the pictures...Tobin's very first moments on the beach. He was a bit confused (is this my new bathtub?) but not surprisingly, as he loves the water, he loved the beach!


After much sight-seeing, there was always the required nap:)

Evenings consisted of too much fun playing with Aunt Emily and Grandma...

On Sunday we all went to the Texas State Aquarium - which was SO much fun! Tobin was enthralled...if you look closely at the collage you can see him trying to touch the jellyfish! The adults had just as much fun taking in the sights - that would be my Mom and Dad smiling at the dolphin show:)

Tobin post-aquarium visit...

Our last day, right before we hit the road home...Tobin was growing tired of pictures, and of the hat that no longer fits over his cheeks, also his shorts look horribly tight in these pictures...umm, they are size 12 mos. Looks like someone inherited his mother's thighs - sorry, kid!

Me and my boy on the beach...doesn't get much better than that!

And, I know I'm late to his four month update...guess that's how it goes with life these days...I'll be back after his appointment on Friday!

It looks and sounds delightful! I love Tobin's face looking at the fish! Also, nice job on the color coordination family photos at the bottom ;).
