Week in Review - April 24, 2011

Happy Easter if you celebrate Easter! We've had another fun week, with a few things going on - but I'm going to focus on our weekend with this post. We decided to take a little weekend trip to the Gulf - to say goodbye before we leave Texas. We spent the weekend in Corpus Christi, enjoying the ocean, the sea birds, the fish & chips...

We made the ~3.5hr drive over to Corpus after the kids got out of preschool on Friday. We didn't have time to do a whole lot once we got there that night, but we did go out for dinner - even at the restaurant, Courtney was ready to swim!

Next door to the restaurant we spied a comic book store - right away Carter noticed the neon signs and wondered what it was!

Carter couldn't believe there was so much superhero stuff all in one place!

After dinner we settled into the hotel, where the kids shared the sofa bed. They goofed around for quite a while, but in the end they settled down & slept - yay!

We began Saturday with a view of the USS Lexington, which is now a museum. We didn't visit but Carter thought it was pretty cool!

We did visit the aquarium, though!

At the aquarium, the kids enjoyed a dolphin show...

Touching stingrays...

And getting up close & personal with a sea turtle!

The aquarium was fun, but even better was the beach!!

Thankfully we avoided sharks. Mostly...

And before leaving, we hit the beach again in the early morning hours, this time combing the beach for shells...

Hurray for a fun weekend by the sea!

Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard
against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.

Any suggestions?
