{Vacation - Days 5-8}

Wednesday - one of the most fun days of our trip! It was my brother in law's birthday. We went to Aquarium in Corpus Christi and then ate at Joe's Crabshack. We love that the Joe's in Corpus is right on the water. Our table was by a huge window and Mason loved it. This was one of our best dining experiences. We were there over 2 hours, no doubt. Mason was wonderful and we had so much fun! Our waitress made a friend in Mason...she brought him crackers and a toy shark. He loved them both. :)

We even got in some cute family photos!!!

Holy heck my boys are handsome!!!!

This is what you get when you ask Mason to close his eyes!!

Thursday - we took a boat/dolphin tour. It was a blast. When I heard "dolphin tour" I was thinking yeah right....we probably won't see any. Boy was I wrong! We saw 35-40 of them. They even put on a show for us and came right up to our boat. The boat ride started out like poop, though! Mason wanted down to roam and he was throwing a fit. I was so scared thinking...here we are at the mercy of this boat ride for 1.5 hours with a fussy kid! Yikes. But once we got going it wasn't so bad...we kept Mason busy by pointing out everything to him. He liked the BIG FISH {dolphins} which he now calls sharks. Every type of fish or anything in the water is a "Shark" - except turtles. He knows the difference in those. Even though there are some types of trees that he calls turtles. Close, I s'pose. 

Friday - was our last full day on the Island so it only felt right to do the beach thing. We drove to Padre Island only to find the beach closed. There was a huge storm rolling in which made poor driving conditions on the beach. We did find a little nook to beach for a bit. Mason was mainly interested in chasing the birds. After the beach we went to a fabulous restaurant called Beaches and then did some shopping. Great last night!

It was a wonderful vacation. Even though Mason was a little crabbier than normal...yeah, did I mention the 4 teeth that decided to come in that week? 1 broke through...
