This year the Anderson side of our family all met up in Port Aransas, Texas.
We rented a nice house right off of the beach. The kids spent a lot of time playing on this huge deck.
We also spent lots of time building sand castles, monster truck tracks and swimming in the ocean. Not pictured is the pool located inside the housing community that we frequented and used to rinse off all the sand from the beaches. Did I mention how much we LOVE the beach and how sad we are to leave it?
The house we rented came with a golf cart which we used to our full advantage. It was so much fun to drive around town and on the beach. If we ever do this again, finding a house with a golf cart will be at the top of our list.
We decided to splurge and take the dolphin tour the last day we were there. Although it was really fun and the kids loved it I am not sure if I would do it again. One thing I didn't get a picture of is the pirate attack. This particular dolphin tour has pirates that come and attack the boat and the kids get to shoot them with water cannons and water balloons. This was Caleb's favorite part of the entire trip. I think for us, this made the entire experience worth the money just because Caleb loved it so much. We also did see quite a few dolphins.
They had a big tank in the middle of the boat full of fish and other ocean creatures they caught. The kids got to touch and hold them.
Overall it was a great family reunion. We loved getting together and seeing all of our family and we had such a good time at the beach. I would highly recommend this place for family get togethers. It is low key and very accommodating to families.
