Day 1 (yesterday) started early (6:50a.m.) after a fairly sleepless night (we were all excited). We finished final prep and loaded the car and headed for DFW airport. It rained the whole way, and we wondered if this was indicative of what our week was going to look like weather-wise (weather reports weren’t looking too good). But we were able to board the plane and fly to (most-of-the-time) sunny Corpus Christi, Texas!
It was Brendan’s (and Brayden’s)
first flight and they both did so well! I was amazed that neither of them seemed scared one bit. Brendan actually seemed a bit bored after awhile and began coloring in his coloring book! All in all it was a non-eventful flight (all 1 hour of it). Rental car was easy and we were on our way to the Omni hotel.
We swam a bunch and I taught Brendan how to snorkel, that was a lot of fun and he did great! Had a luxurious dinner at Mickey Dee’s, and relaxed watching the boats in the marina. I think they were in bed by 9:30p.m., I went downstairs and finished reading Seth Godin’s The Dip, and was in bed listening to Snow Patrol’s Final Straw by 10:30p.m. . I’m loving this record!!
Good day, great to be with the fam!
I leave you with a shot from the “stalker cam”! My wife took a picture of Brendan and I in the pool (yes, I spared your eyes by leaving my shirt on!). We thought it looked like a stalker-type pic! See ya!
