The beach!

While in Corpus, of course we had to hit the beach! This was Cali's first time to walk on the beach and play in the sand. And she only ate a couple of mouthfulls of it:) The kids had a blast running around, building sandcastles, collecting shells, finding crabs, fish, and shrimp, and jumping over the waves. Daddy even let them take a turn on his surfboard. (See his blog for those video clips). Joey loved sharing his favorite hobby with them. It was fun spending time with both sides of our family at the beach that day. Thanks to everyone who came and played with us!

totally jealous of your beach time. I can never get enough time at the beach. The lake just doesn't hit the same spot.

What a fun day at the beach. I hope that our CA beaches won't be a disappointment. I love our beaches but I've been told they don't compare to the Atlantic and gulf beaches. I know for a fact that we don't compare to the Caribbean. Our water is cold but we get used it.

Darling pictures. Love, Grammy Lura

Pictures of the beach fun. Girls walking together is absolutely precious. Cali's expressions are so cute. Check out fisherman Don Roy and that studly surfer Kai. Crabs trying to escape our capture ha ha ha!! Oh yeah and there's that other studly guy ~ Joey enjoying his long board. Grandma's taking turns with Cali. Mommy to be wondering where has the time gone. And of course our photographer catching it all on file for our viewing pleasure. Thanks for the gorgeous pics and granddaughters of course.

I love a good beach day. We need to get out to the beach again one of these days, when we were in Virginia, we were going to go to Virginia Beach but decided on Busch Gardens instead.
