South Padre Island Part 4

Good news!  Sissa didn't stand Dylan up again!  Woohoo!

Guess what we did yesterday?!  We sat by the pool for several hours!  I know, crazy.

And then we went to visit the turtles at Turtle Rescue Inc.  Its a turtle rescue hospital that takes in wounded sea turtles.  They either get better there or end up living there (if they are too injured to return to the ocean).  The kids loved it last year and loved it again this year.  These three turtles were being released back into the ocean in a few hours.  We wished them well!

Avery chatted up the "teeto teeto teetos!"  This one actually looked like he was talking to her cuz he kept opening his mouth and looking at her.  She was pleased.

And then we hit the beach.  Eric said that Avery had been running down the sand dunes the other day and wanted her to do it again for pictures.

He made me do it too.

When I got down, he said I didn't do it with enough heart.

Avery had to do it again too.

And then I got my second chance.

This is the best picture of my stride that he could get?!  Please.  I could do much better.

He blamed me though.  Said I didn't exaggerate it enough.

Then the kids played in the sand.  Don't worry, we (unlike some other morons we know) picked up our can before we left.

Avery decided to tackle her brother.  He had to grin and bear it because he was the one who taught her that.

I like how she's still smiling even though she has a mouthful of sand.

Then their new friend Tag stopped by to join in the fun.

Could Dylan be any sweeter?!?!?!

Avery has been quite enamored with the college girls.  Likewise though.  Obviously.

And then we just HAD to get all wet.

Some got more wet than others.

Despite the look on her face, she WAS enjoying herself.

And finally, here is our ice cream loot.  They are all almost empty!  Blue Bell gets 4 enthusiastic thumbs up from us!

Well, today is our last full day here so we gotta make the most of it!  Back to MN we go tomorrow.  Siiiiiiiiiigh.
