The first weekend of summer and we made plans to head to Malaquite Beach in Corpus Christi with our friends, the Tuckers. Well, to be quite honest, I didn’t want to go to any beach 34 weeks pregnant, but Joe really wanted to take Jude. The kid had been writing at school that he wanted to go to the beach with his dad. How could I say no to that?
We went for the day, and actually had a great time. The kids loved being in the water and we had fun burying them in the sand and making sand castles. My observation of the beach is that it is similar to going camping; you realize you have to pack all this stuff just so you can go sit outside. It actually was a great day trip and I am glad we got to do something special with Jude before the baby arrives.
