This is at the sea turtle rescue center. Dylan enjoyed the turtles so much that we had to go back and visit them a second time. He absorbed a lot of information on this trip. He keeps talking about going back to "his condo" and doing this and that. The turtles and dolphins were probably the highlights for him.
Here we are on the dolphin watch boat. Avery was napping at the time and its a good thing she didn't come b/c it was COLD! The dolphin's were neat to see though. And Dylan enjoyed seeing all the fish that they dragged up with a net. He got to touch several of them too.
And here is our family picture the night before we had to leave to come back home.
Darn bulldozers ruined our photo op here! (tracks)
Well, thats it. There are more pics on Facebook, but if you don't have FB - thats your problem!
Again, here is Dylan at the beach. Here he was constructing a castle.
I do a fantastic job of supervising.
Avery finally found the time to come down and see the ocean too. Her pesky naps just kept getting in the way of all her fun!
First bikini and sunglasses!

South Padre Island vacation

We went on vacation at the end of February. Our first vacation as a family. Actually, our first vacation for any of us! Eric told the kids they should be happy to get to see the ocean at such a young age. He had to wait until he was 30 to do so. Here is Dylan checking out the ocean for the first time:
He LOVED the beach. He would run and run and run. He also liked playing in the surf, throwing sand and practicing writing his letters in the sand.
Here we are on our daily beach walk. Dylan often went more than once.
Here is Miss Avery in her first swimsuit. She loves the water, so it was a given that she would enjoy swimming in a pool.
More pics in another post. Picasa is lame-o and only lets me upload 4 pics at a time.
