We decided to pack up the kiddos and spend the day at the Beach. The beach in Matagorda, Texas, back where we come from. Jess and I both grew up in Bay City, about 20 minutes from Matagorda beach. So we have spent many afternoons down there growing up. We had heard rumors that the beach had been cleaned up and a great place to take the kids and it was true. Everyone had a blast and you couldn't keep my kids out of the water. We even took Sandy down there and she had a blast running around and splashing in the water. Carter and I worked hard on a sand castle, and Drake and dad played football and boogie boarded. Sara and Jon brought there boys down, so the kids played together.
After the beach fun ended, the boys got a fresh water bath on the end of the truck and we headed to River bend. YUMMMY!!! Love the food and if you head that way you have to stop and eat the Fried Pickles. We taught the boys how to play shuffle board which the enjoyed. After a wonderful meal of fried shrimp and hamburgers we headed home. Both boys fell asleep on the way home. They were exhausted from the wonderful day that was spent at the beach.
