Corpus Christi- Part 2

The last two days of our trip were more of the same...sand and sun with a trip to the USS Lexington thrown in.

The bay was full of lots of jellyfish. We even found a dead one on the beach so Cole showed it off for the camera.

On Thursday we took a 30 minute drive over to Padre Island so we could experience their beautiful beaches. We spent the morning there just playing and walking on the beach.

That night we headed to Joe's for dinner.

Someone was a little worn out from his lack of naps, so he looked like this going into the restaurant. He was limp as a dishrag. :-)

Luckily he did wake up and eat with us!

On Friday we went to see Lady Lex, a retired Naval aircraft carrier turned into a museum.

Cole took me on a quick flight. :-)

And he tried out the sailor's sleeping quarters. They were squeezed in tight.

Showing us his muscles on the torpedo.

But by far, his favorite part was the pool! We spent several hours a day just swimming and playing. He even learned how to swim underwater while on this trip. I am so glad he loves the water and is not scared of it!

Swimming with daddy.

We had a great time at the beach and are enjoying all of our family time together before Jonathan starts training on the 3rd!
