Corpus Christi Beach
We decided to try the beach again this year. Last year when we went to San Diego and went to the beach Austin hated it. He would play in the sand as long as he stood on a towel and he didn’t dare go anywhere near the water. So we were hoping he was over part of that and he would enjoy it. He now loves the water and pool so we thought maybe he would enjoy the ocean water.
Well it was very short lived and not very fun again. We talked to Austin and told him all about it all week and the week before so he would be well prepared. He said he would play in the sand as long as he had shoes on so I did buy him water shoes before going. So when we got there before we even pulled into a spot to park Austin started freaking out and did not want to go anywhere near the water. I really thought if I could just get him in the water he would enjoy it and be able to play in it. Nope not at all. Louie and I walked him to the water with him dragging his feet and fighting us the whole way. Luckily it wasn’t very far of a walk. Hey didn’t want his feet anywhere near the water. When we finally got him by it he picked his feet up so you wouldn’t touch. So water was a total bust.
The sand on the other part was a great time for Austin. He loved playing with in it and covering up his Daddy’s feet and legs. He really enjoyed the sand which was good. He didn’t even really mind that there was 30 mile an hour winds. It was crazy.
Alijah loved the ocean and beach. He had no problem at all playing in the water. He even sat down and let the waves come up and get him wet. He also played and ate the sand. He did really well and loved the beach. I think Alijah will be mommies beach bum.
We didn’t last too long on the beach between the 30 mile an hour winds and Alijah eating the sand he only stayed on the beach for about an hour or so. Since Corpus Christi was a 3 hour drive from San Antonio we had to find a few other things to do while we were there. So off we went to figure out what else there was to do.
