Matt had to do a pediatric anesthesia rotation (which he loved) in Corpus Christi from mid-Feb to mid-March. So the kids and I took the opportunity to go check out Corpus Christi and we loved it. We had such a fun time and packed a whole lot into one Saturday.
First things first, when we woke up Saturday morning, before going to breakfast, we (the kids) just had to get out to the beach (which we could see from Matt's apartment window) and find some seashells. It was a pretty windy/chilly morning, so we didn't have to wait too long before the kids were ready to eat.
They got to hold sea urchins.

After the aquarium, we went and saw "Percy Jackson" at the movies. It was a fun movie - deviated from the book of course, but still fun. Maybe a bit much for the kids. After that, we headed out to Padre Island and played on the beach. It had warmed up quite a bit from that morning so we were able to last a little longer. Here are some pics of us goofing off on the beach.
All in all it was a great time. Luke wants to move to Corpus. Instead we're heading to the west coast and a whole new ocean and set of beaches.
