Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi

We took a trip this past weekend to Corpus Christi with Joe’s family. It was just a short get away, but much needed. Joe’s uncle, Freddy, graciously allowed the whole crew (5 adults, 3 kids, and 3 dogs) to stay at his house. We visited the Tx State Aquarium and Malaquite Beach on Padre Island on Saturday and ate some great Mexican food, during our stay. We all had a nice relaxing time (except for maybe Liam…being crated is probably not his idea of a vacation).


All the “J” cousins…Joe, Jason, Jude, and Joshua…watching the dolphin show.

This was Jude’s first time at the beach and he really loved the ocean. He tried eating the sand a few times because I was too slow to catch him.




Joe built Jude a sand castle to destroy godzilla-style. Joshua and Jason helped to make the awesome moat and pond around the castle and came running back from the ocean with buckets of water for the full effect.



Joe wanted to be buried in the sand. We tried to get Jude to stand on Joe, but he chose to lie down instead.

  1. I think it’s tradition…Joe always liked getting buried in the sand…too funny! Looks like a good time was had by all! 🙂
