We did spend the last week in South Texas - South Padre Island on a family vacation. It. Was. Cold. South Texas is supposed to be warm - it wasn't.
Now I know to many the temps were not bad - they were spring/fall like, but when you go to the beach in South Texas - it is supposed to be warm.
But the house we rented was warm and cozy, and we had a great time. I am in the process of gathering the photos we took to make into "books" for the family.
We are marking a new chapter in our family life. We are not adding out additional children (the in-laws), we are not adding new children, we are beginning to see those children (the grandchildren) leave the nest. Katie will, as I have said before, be leaving us in September for Marist College in New York. That's a LONG way. So we celebrated this change.
It all went very well. Here is the first installment of pictures from this trip. As you can see by our outerwear - it was really chilly. The winds from the Gulf didn't help things one little bit.
|This was the only time we went "out" for something to eat. It was a brewery on the island - with pretty good food as well!|
