How many people cannot seem to get beyond their 10 mile radius of errands, school, church,work... yep, us too!! It was great this past week to have a reason to bust out of Corpus for a short time....and then get a different take on our secluded island.
Gav's parents (aka Gammie and Papa) came into town on Wednesday and are headed out on a plane right now. We picked them up in San Antonio...which gave us the opportunity to make our first official stop as a tourist in San Antonio. We visited the Alamo, took a boat ride on the RiverWalk and saw the festive downtown SA.
The rest of the time they were here, we came back to Corpus. Poor Papa had quite the "honey-do" list of fix-its around our home...for which I am so thankful. They helped us get the outside holiday decor done...and also our beautiful tree.
Saturday morning we went to our squadron kids party where Santa and his elf flew in on a T44 to bring the gifts. SUPER Cute!! I love to see the magic in the kids' eyes. Christian is at that magical age. Shane's still at the FREAKED out age!! We showed them our beaches, downtown Corpus, the Texas Surf Museum, and a cool park on the bay...just check out the slideshow!
We are just so lucky to have them in our lives and are glad to have a few special days with them. We miss all our family and friends...come visit!!
