For the third year in a row, we stayed in Brownsville for a week. It is about 45 minutes away from South Padre Island, but we found an old and very affordable condo there that we have happily returned to twice. And can I just say, I love Brownsville. I will not get into all of the reasons here, but I honestly think that all other factors being equal, I might choose Brownsville. 

We went to Sea Turtles Inc., a turtle rescue nonprofit, and we made it for feeding time, which was super fun. 

Me, Jessica Lynn (the other Jessica Christensen) and Susan with the babies and Ella. And actually, you can see Paul, Charlotte, Richard, and Soren out in the water behind us if you squint. 

Max drew his first recognizable picture on vacation. It was a chalk drawing, so I could not save it for posterity. But here is a record. :) It's the Sun and he is laying on it. He has been drawing pictures for a while, but they are indiscernible. He brings them over and says things like, "Mom, look! A dinosaur!" (Or dragon.) I think there are some major advantages to drawing something as simple as the sun. The biggest of which is you don't have to tell you audience what the picture is.
