The past weekend we headed out to Port Aransas to meet up with a big group of Cory’s family. They have a beach bash every year but this was the first year we have been able to attend! And I didn’t think I was much of a beach person but this trip may have changed that!
We both took half days on Friday so we could hit the road early. It took almost 5 hours to get there but it was worth it! The boys are pretty much the best car riders ever! They only got impatient towards the very end. And they got to take their first ferry ride. Owen got to get out of the truck with Cory and watch the dolphins while we crossed. He loved it!
We stayed in an adorable condo owned by relatives of Cory’s family. I would highly recommend it- Mustang Island Beach Club, Unit 113. It was super cute and comfortable and had a nice pool and great access to the beach! I thought Owen would sleep in the top bunk but both nights he ended up in bed with Hunter and me. We ate great food, drank cold beer, and had a fun time visiting with family and playing on the beach!
Owen is definitely a little fish! He loved being in the water and playing in the waves! He got to play with his birthday buddy, Ian (they were born on the same day!) and he even held a fish! He built sand castles but had an even better time destroying them! Hunter napped most of the day we spent on the beach. But when he wasn’t napping he was admiring the snack table and eating Cheetoh’s. He loved the sand and did a little dancing to the music. We got sand everywhere! When Owen got some in his mouth he kept telling me “his teeth were cracking.” Hunter liked the water once he finally got in but he enjoyed “swimming” in the sand even more. Everyone enjoyed the pool! Owen did so good floating and swimming around while wearing his puddle jumper! And Hunter liked the water too and giggled while we spun in circles!
We visited some surf shops and the boys got some cool new toys. Hunter picked out dinosaurs and sharks and Owen picked out a train (shocker!) and a rescue vehicle. And we loaded up on candy at the neatest little candy shop!
We are already looking forward to next year! It was such a fun time and it’s so cool getting to watch the boys visit new places! We crammed a lot of fun into just a few days but I am so grateful for the awesome memories we made!
