#FanningFourth

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that my entire family (plus 23 others) just got back from South Padre Island where we celebrated the 4th! My family used to caravan to Padre every year growing up and we hadn't done it in a few years. It was a blast. We had a few bumps along the road (literally, our tire blew out on our return trip...oh and Ford hates road trips...aye yi yi) but overall it was a such a fun and relaxing trip. Ford wasn't so sure about the beach the first two days but then was a maniac crawling around and squishing sand between his chubby fingers. I mostly kept him in the shade and we took lots of pool and nap breaks so he wouldn't get overtired or sunburned. It is so stinkin' cute to watch him and Embry interact these days. Ford is moving away from babyhood and loving to play and learn like a little toddler.  Our family lost a dear friend who went to be with Jesus too soon last Sunday so there is no where else I would rather be than with my family while during the beautiful mourning (will share more later).


The family that shot-skis together, stays together #Merica

We stayed at the Suntide III for probably the 6th or 7th time and highly recommend it. It is beach front condos (2 and 3 bedroom) with an indoor and outdoor pool. We made most of our meals and went out a few times...perfect for families!

Embry and Ford are just the cutest! We have stayed at that hotel so many times when we used to go down to South Padre all the time! This post brought back so many memories of waiting in that long ferry line and going to the beach to catch crabs!
