To the Beach

Over the weekend we drove down to Corpus Christi to camp on the beach. It was a nice, short getaway from San Antonio. The kids loved being there and playing in the sand and ocean. I loved not having a care in the world and not being that dang apartment. Sean loved his clear mind and not being at Fort Sam Houston and the dogs loved practicing their hunting skills. He hiked those dunes until it got too dark to see.
Lois thought she was so grown up, being able to just sit in her own chair. Wow she truly is BIG she turns 1 year old this Thursday!!!
Our attack Dachshunds. Ruby and Mini ran along the beach for hours perfectly content chasing the birds. Ruby was really good about swimming back and forth from the ocean to the shore, although her backend tends to drag. She is sooo long. Mini on the other hand, she is special and didn't enjoy swimming quite as much.
Once Sean showed Porter how to make a sand castle he worked on his own little creation until we made him come in up to camp.
They are best friends. He loves to play with her and to torment her. She loves just being near Porter. Following him around and trying to do what he does.
Playing with her shadow.
Porter was right at home being there. He is such a fish.
I think that a quarter of the beach ended up in Lois's mouth.

Building their sand castles
