New friends, new faces, same family, same places...

Our first Friday in Corpus
As soon as John got out of work we headed to our favorite "duck park" as we like to call it, otherwise known as "Lakeview", with some cat food (turtles love it!) and bread (for the ducks of coarse - although Mia enjoyed her share of both). Bash loves going out there to feed the ducks because they all crowd around you as soon as they know you have food and the turtles immediately head toward the surface when a little food hits the water. It took a while for Mia to get used to the ducks around her because they are after all her size if not a little bigger. We had to be really careful because they tend to knip if you don't feed fast enough and they will definitely follow you for more food ALL OVER THE PARK. After the park we took my parents to Aladdins, one of Corpus's newest Meditteranean and Syrian restaurants that now features my favorite, yep, a seperate Indian menu. Beckham will be tired of it by the time he's born.

Sizing him up
I only put this pic because a friend who hasn't seen me in a while asked if I was showing yet, uhhh, does this answer your question? CHUBBO, I blame the baby, not the nightly trip to Baksin Robbins, seriously !!!

She'll never know how close she came to being carried away by a flock of seagulls
We probably should've cut smaller pieces, huh Bash?
John invited a co-worker and his family to join us and Mia was scoping their daughter up and down I guess she checks out!
Those little drowsy eyes let us know just when its time to go home
Restful afternoons were spent watching the kids play outside, climbing trees, being super silly and eating every snack my mom made for them.

Bash quickly found his old friends and happened to make some new ones. I was thrilled when he asked permission to go play at the ditch that I used to play at MANY MANY MANY a few years ago, it brought back old memories of riding my bike (which I cleverly nicknamed "The Desert Rose") down there, catching minnows, bike racing, jumping the ditch, and getting super dirty. Which is why it was no surprise to me when Bash came home with his pants soaking wet up to his hips and his shoes covered in mud. By he did make out with some minnows and crawfish. Nice!
