South Padre Island, Texas

The last time I made this incredibly LOOOOONNNGGG 9 hour journey (in a car) from the valley to Dallas, I was in a U-Haul packed full of all my things ready to start a brand new life in a brand new city.  Nearly 5 and a half years later, I remember why I always fly.  ;) 

The first leg of our trip wasn't so bad actually.  Cutting the trip in half, Chad and I made it into San Antonio on Thursday, just in time to crash my sweet friend Melinda's pad for the night.  With not nearly enough time to catch up, we hit the hay soon after and woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed the next morning...ready to take on the next four hours to the south Texas.  :) 

Driving in around noon on Friday, we made our rounds, meeting up with friends (and potential restaurant investors ;) and spent the afternoon with little Miss Addison and sweet baby Andrew.  :)  On Saturday, we headed to South Padre Island to enjoy some good old family time with my parents and Miss Addison (who surprisingly wanted to come along for the overnight stay, even without Omar and Christi!)  Luckily, we entertained her enough to keep any potential freak-outs at bay... Thank goodness for Mexican Bingo to liven up the party!!  ;) 

But first, a little driving tour of the island to show Chad the sights.  :)  Not QUITE like the beaches of southern California where Chad grew up...but beautiful none the less.. at least for our little neck of the woods.  :)
