Memorial Day 2010

We had a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend. It was what its supposed to be, relaxing, fun, serene, you get the picture. We went to my dads condo down at the coast, Port Aransas, aka the Texas Riviera! HA. It was Jackson's first ride in the boat, first time (interested) in the beach/sand/water. You may remember when we went to Myrtle Beach, SC with Taylor's BFF back in October. Jackson was SO not interested in the beach then, but this time....Well, Ill let the pictures speak for themselves!
Pop showing Jackson how to dig up the sand.
Strike a pose beach model!!! LOL
This pic would so be magazine worthy if he wasn't squinting! HE HE
Ahh if only I could have gotten a front face shot here.
Pure joy!

He was such a perfect angel the whole 4 days. Im not kidding. Not one meltdown, temper tantrum, nap stalling, waking up early, NOTHING!! He was all smiles, giggles, joy screaming, chasing doggies, sleeping in and sleeping at nap time, PURE HAPPINESS!!! I chop it up to the sea air. Doesn't it always make us feel that way?! He also had his first bit of Watermelon this weekend and he LOVED it! This kid is after Pops heart the way he loves guacamole, chips, queso, his homemade pancakes and waffles, and now watermelon!
We literally just rode around in the boat, played at the little beaches inside the channels, slept, ate, drank, ate, drank some more, and R-E-L-A-X-E-D! So glad we had that weekend bc the next week (June 1-5) was pure chaos and craziness. Thats why I haven't posted sooner. Ill write about that next time. But for now, here are some of our pictures we took. I do believe our, and Jackson's favorite part of the trip, was when Pop let him drive the boat.
Look at the happiness on that face!!!!
Now I know you all think he is too young, but he may be giving us those wine tours soon. (Wine tours are what we call it when we take the boat into the neighborhoods on the water, look and lust after the mansions on the water, and drink wine while wondering how we can some day get ourselves one of those houses!!!)
Ready to go on our first ride.

On the way back from every ride we took he crashed.
Must have been the waves, and the wind!
Enjoying the wine tour...minus the wine for Jack Jack, Bonner and Scout.
They just liked looking at the houses dogs on the patios.
Caught red handed, picking out loot!

Turns out everyone we know had a wonderful weekend also, and we all took the time to remember that it was about all the service men in the Army, Navy, Air Force, National Guard, Marines, Etc. that make our freedom possible and our country safe. To them we say a HUGE THANK YOU!!!!!
