A Stop On The Way...

On our way to our beach vacation this week (woo-hoo!!!), we made a stop in Corpus Christi for a homeschool field trip.
And for fun.
We went to the Texas State Aquarium.
We are studying oceans this month, since we are visiting the ocean, we find that to be a good time to learn about it.
Of course, the kids loved it...almost as much as their Daddy.
Did you know, Rusty and I visited an aquarium on our honeymoon?
In Van Couver.
Our kids come by their love of Creation honestly. Rusty is like a kid at these things.
It was great family fun.
We have arrived at our beach get-away, and the younger folks have just arrived. (Matt & Erin, nelyweds! and Nick & Carissa, married 7 mos. All four are Treston's new godparents!)
Rusty really showed how old we were when he talked to them about bringing a "boombox."
I'll post pics later on.

Our family loves aquariums too. I grew up in the Florida Keys so I love being around marine life.

We're in Padre, and Liz, the last time we were here was for your Miss Texas Pageant. That brought back some memories!!!
We're staying in a great house just about a 1/2 block from the beach inlet. We're hitting the beach again today!

I hope you have a blast! How fun!

I can't wait to see some cute beach pics! You have to do that. I bet the beach there is much prettier than Galveston.

Have a ball!
