This past month Elsy and I went on our first real vacation (without kids) since Mikey was born. Our previous vacation was in July of ‘03 when we went to Hawaii. This time around we went to another beach destination - Corpus Christi.
We had been to Corpus a few months back while Elsy’s parents were in El Salvador and really liked it. This time we got to do a little more exploring and a whole lot more sleeping. We stayed at a hotel near the beach that was near most of the attractions that we wanted to see.
The weekend that we went just happened to be their “Buck Days” celebration that they have every year. This year they had a carnival, boat show, and a rodeo. We walked through the boat show and the carnival which was fun.
At the boat show we got to go inside of a 45′ yacht that was worth $2.5 million dollars. It had 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and slept 12 people. It was really nice. The crazy part was that the boat has more bathrooms then our house!
As much fun as it was we both missed the kids a lot. We were thinking about doing a video conference with the kids but thought that it would be too hard on the them (or maybe it was us that it would be hard on). As much as we missed the kids they did not seem to notice that we were gone which I guess is for the best. They were probably happy to have Grandma and Grandpa all to themselves for a couple of days.
