Weekend at the Beach

We went to Corpus Christi for a nice little family getaway this weekend. The weather was GREAT...not too hot, not too cold!

We stayed at the Omni and their customer service was awesome! Cole received this bag full of goodies when we checked in.

Our balcony view of the bay from the 7th floor.

Hanging out by the hot tub.

They did a little swimming, but the pool was soooo cold!

For dinner Friday night we went to Landry's Seafood and sat on the patio. These two are a silly bunch!

We had onion straws for an appetizer. They were super long and super yummy!

After dinner we happened upon a carnival and let Cole ride a few rides. Just a swingin'!

Saturday morning we hit up Academy for a few things and Cole loved checking out the skateboards. He even found a helmet to put on before trying them out. Safety first! :-)

Then it was off to the beach where we spent the afternoon. The water was actually pretty nice!

Working on a sand castle.

My boy...growing up fast.

Jonathan's sand creation. He worked forever on this!

We found an eatery on the beach and Cole scored him an ice cream sandwich.

Saturday night we got Subway and had a picnic in the room so we could watch the Alabama game.

We headed home today just before lunch and Cole sacked out while eating Chex Mix. He slept nearly the whole 2 hour trip home. Guess the beach wore him out!

We had a great weekend enjoying our last getaway before our move!


  1. Great beach pictures and Jon's sea creature turned out really good. He was always artistic like that.

    Cole's eyes are so expressive in the picture of Jon feeding him the onion straw. Wish we could have actually seen Jon's sea creature. Glad ya'll had a wonderful trip!
