Vacation Begins! (Beach Week Day 1)

On the road again!  Trying to drown out the loud noise in the background.

Drove by Stephen F. Austin on the way

Backseat of our crazy car filled with fishing gear, golf clubs, and beach stuff!

The first day was mostly spent indoors visiting with family and watching the Olympics, but once Saturday morning rolled around, we were all out and ready for some fun at the beach!

Sandcastles with cousins!

Warning: I have a lot of photos of the back of Thomas over the course of our vacation!

Here's the house where we stayed in the middle with all the flags.  Steven's dad has flags or windsocks for each of his kids and grandkids, along with one "outlaw" pirate flag for the in-laws.  The house was 9 bedroom with 6 bathrooms, and we filled it up with 37 people at one point (not all stayed the night)!

The tent set-up

Tents from the other direction

More hardworking builders!

And finally...the only way I could get Thomas off the beach was to tell him he'd get to go play in the hose.  Then I had to bribe him with fruit snacks to get him in the house!

Next up...Night One Family Pics and Anniversary Celebration!
