Beach Trip 2009

Last week we spent the week at Port Aransas. It was so much fun and the kids had a blast. This was our first trip to the beach with the kids so we really didn't know how they would react to it but even though they really didn't get in the water much they loved playing in the sand. We also had lots of fun playing with all the aunts, uncles and cousins that were there. My dad's side of the family have been going to the beach every year together for as long as I remember and being there with my kids brought back so many memories of my brother, sisters and I playing with our cousins there. It was hard being back there without Michael there and I also missed my sister, Cayce, who is in the US Coast Guard and couldn't come but her son was there and it was great watching him play in the sand with my kids. We also had my dad's wedding there. It was beautiful with the water in the background. We had around 70 people there. It was great seeing people that I haven't seen in a long time. Chaz and I can't wait to take the kids next summer and hope to continue the tradition of the kids spending there summer vacation in Port A. Great trip!!!

We just got back from Port A on Sunday. Freeby's parents have a condo there. We go all the time and both of my boys have had their first vacations there. Where did you stay? It is fun to know someone else who loves a place that is special to us too.
