We're back from our mini vacation and it was soooo relaxing! I literally only took 300 pictures (really more around 100 except that the self timer does 10 shots at a time. Don't judge me, I need the options!) On Sunday, we made the 305 mile drive to the Southernmost point of Texas; South Padre Island. We went there last April on a whim and pool hopped at a hotel called La Copa Inn. We thought, this place is alright (read: they didn't kick us out for pool hopping) if we ever come here again we should stay here. Then last month Andrew got a Living Social deal for 2 nights/$99 at that exact hotel and we had to pick 2 days in May. In case you forgot, May is Mother's Day and it's a bit of a tough holiday for me as of late, so we picked Sunday - Tuesday for our vacation days. Turning Mother's Day from an unhappy day to a very happy one... see, I even documented that in photos:
The bottom photo says "un-Happy Mother's Day" in case you couldn't read it.
Don't worry though I switched it back because it was a Happy Mother's Day after all :)
There was an abundance of fresh, delicious sea food and blue curacao drinks.
I don't know what's in them, but I imagine a lot of coconut rum and a lot of calories.
By the way, calories didn't count this weekend. Obviously!
The weather was perfect, we only got a little sunburned and I'm sure it will turn to tan tomorrow (wishful thinking). The only thing I found annoying was all the birds. I know, birds at the beach? You'd think I didn't grow up in a beach town, but I forgot how pesty birds can be. They photo-bombed so many of my pics that I finally reasoned with them that I would take a picture of them for every picture of us. That's how I really got to 300 pictures.
Now it's back to reality. Which means laundry and packing. We leave for Boston a week from tomorrow and I can't wait! Sometimes I think I just live vacation to vacation.
Moving to Texas was just a really strange sort of vacation.
At least that's what I keep telling myself!
