We spent the weekend in Port O'Conner. Our agenda consisted of really nothing but taking the boys tubing. They have never tubed before and Drake had been begging to get in at the bay. So I ran to Academy and bought a tube. We spent most of Saturday behind the bay boat pulling the kids. Drake finally got brave to go by his self, and then he wouldn't get off. Had a total meltdown when we told him he was done for the day. Carter loved it although he was too young to go by his self and had to ride with mommy. They also got to jump off the boat and swim in the water which the both loved.
Our afternoon ended with taking a cruise on our Offshore fishing boat, Hydrocarbon. The boys each took a turn driving with uncle Ramsey and we all sat outside watching the dolphins jump behind the boat. Carter took his first big boy 'tinkle' off the back of the boat. His daddy was proud. We had a great weekend at the bay.
Second week of summer was all about Golf Camp here at the Richards home. We attended the neighborhood golf camp and he had a blast. It was hot, but they got to stay in the shade and I packed him extra gatorade and water to keep him hydrated. He told me he wanted to go back this week again, so I guess the heat never bothered him. He is so cute in his golf gear, check out his golf shoes, PRECIOUS!

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.
