School finished on June 2nd (I think!) and we headed to the Texas coast of South Padre Island for 2 days by the sea. It was a long drive, but completely worth it as we just relaxed by the hotel pool or on the beach and soaked up the sun. It was the perfect start to the summer.
Luke's first boogie boarding attempt
Port Isabel lighthouse
Black Dragon - a fun way to see the bay.....and some dolphins!
The rest of June was spent playing with friends (both child and us adults!) and spending lots of time in the pool. The Texas heat makes it difficult to have any motivation to do much else! Chris was in California for 12 days with work and during this time Luke had his first cub scout event - the Space Derby.........we got the kit to build the rocket 2 1/2 days before the event, and here I owe a huge thanks to our friend Mike Huchko who stood in as Deputy Dad and built the blinking thing with Luke!
We celebrated July 4th with a pool party at house. The irony of the Brits hosting on Independence Day was not lost on us......
