Each June my parents treat us to a trip down to the coast. Over the past several years we have stayed at the same fun beach house in Galveston. However, this year we decided to try something different. My dad found a house on a canal in Rockport. We could literally fish and kayak right outside the back door. The view was beautiful, especially at sunset.
The kids stayed in their life jackets most of the time :)
It didn't take Emma long at all to catch her very first fish! Of course she didn't want to get too close and wasn't exactly sure why we had to throw her tiny fish back in. Within minutes of her rod going back into the water she caught another! By the time we left, she had developed impressive casting skills (almost completely across the canal!)
Sweet Owen loved fishing but his casting area was a danger zone ;)
The kids couldn't wait for Uncle Joseph to take them riding around on the kayaks! Emma had a blast and even wanted to paddle some.
Owen also enjoyed his turn but was very timid and remained very still the entire time.
The kids got to go with daddy the next day :)
We made fun lifelong memories and can't wail til the next trip!
