Corpus Christi - Aquarium

Our trip to South Padre Island began early Thursday morning. When Mason got out of bed, he was so excited to go. He got ready and sat patiently at the back door while we got everything. He even insisted on eating his breakfast there. We drove 3 hours to Corpus Christi and stopped at the Texas State Aquarium. Mason loved it! After that, it was another 2-3 hours to South Padre Island, pretty much as far south as you can go in Texas. But we had so much fun that we decided to go there once a year now!
Here are some pictures at the aquarium on the way...

Mason got to pet sting-rays and sharks! He thought it was so much fun, we had to go back and do it many times! At one point, Jes was lifting him out to pet a big one and dropped him half in the water....poor Mason was soaked!
