Spring Break Recap - Monday March 9

I spent a week packing for our trip, 10 days on our trip, and it's taken me almost a whole week to unpack!! Vacations are a lot of work!! Hopefully I will finish up these recaps in the next couple of days.

On Monday my sister Val and 2 of her boys (Brady and Elliott) came down to Corpus Christi and we went to the Texas State Aquarium. The weather was beautiful and the kids had a great time!!Kissing Cousins!! We had to keep telling Carson that it was okay to kiss his cousin Brady, but he should kiss him on the cheek, not the lips!! He is really going through a kissing phase right now and wants a "kiss on the lips" several times a day!!

The boys having a laugh at the dolphin show!

Brady entertaining us during the dolphin show!

It looks like everyone had a wonderful time (especially Morgan :) I LOVE the photo of the kids walking next to the aquarium - AWESOME! and one of the turtle ones is incredible too - great work - it's hard to get great photos and try to keep track of 4 plus kids!!!

Wow, such nice pictures! Looks like a great trip!
But I agree with you... hauling FIVE kids' stuff around in a mini van, packing and unpacking... well, I always need a vacation from the vacation!
