We just got back from our vacation to South Padre Island and San Antonio. We had a really good time and enjoyed being away from the stress and busy-ness of home. It rained on us most of the vacation so we only managed to squeeze in a few hours on the beach. For the fourth, we spent some time swimming and the kids searched for sea shells, then we went to the go-kart / bungee jump place to get a little closer to the fireworks. When the fireworks were done, we went to a bar called Live Bait and enjoyed some drinks and live music from Johnny Lee. We ended the night with a night stroll on the beach.
We took a day tour to Matamoros, Mexico to shop around. Here is the whole gang. Along with Joseph's parents, brother and Cecilia, his uncle, cousin, his girl-friend and her 3 kids went along on the trip with us. I was a little concerned at first how it would all work out having such a big group, but it was a lot of fun. Having the kids around always brightened everyone's day. They were truly amazing kids and I had so much fun playing with them.
Fireworks and Red, White, and Blue for the Fourth!
