After leaving Fort Worth this morning at 4:50 am, we headed south to Corpus Christi/Padre Island for a week of surf 'n sun. Well not really surf...but beach time. Kate has never been to the beach, obviously, and Nick and I have not been since we've been married either. (He's not a huge fan of sand, lol.) This in, as a matter of fact, the very first vacation we have taken as a family that did not involve going with or meeting up with some sort of extended family...so it's kind of nice to just be the three of us. Naturally as I type this, completely exhausted and ready to go to bed about an hour ago at 8:30, Kate is running around our hotel room like a crazed banshee and does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Oh joy.
