We flew to Texas Tuesday morning for our annual vacation to visit my parents on the Gulf Coast. Ahhh, our long awaited vacation was finally here! We had absolutely gorgeous weather and took advantage of every second of it. We went to the beautiful Rockport park where Miles played on the toddler playground.
We listened to the waves outside my parents' front door and Mike and Miles cruised on the pier looking at herons, pelicans and ducks.
Vacationing with my family means lots of good food! Here Miles and Grandpa Nickolay, called Baba by Miles, enjoyed a happy hour snack. Miles also wins the muffin eating contest - he gobbled up the most homemade zucchini muffins during our stay.

Grandma Nickolay, or Mama to Miles (I'm now Mommy), loves giving him lots of smooches. Miles was always on the look out for puppies out the windows.

Here we are just enjoying the sunshine and the water.

Happy hour!

During our trip we went to the Rockport Beach which is rated one of the cleanest beaches in the country. Miles did not want to walk in the sand at first but with some coaxing (gentle forcing) he got his toes a little dirty and his feet wet and had a great time.

We also drove on the beach in Port Aransas and dipped our feet in the Gulf of Mexico.
Miles loved seeing all of the boats and went on a ferry ride across to Port A. According to Miles, "toot toot" goes the boat.

Miles first kayaking adventure. When mommy and Grandpa went out kayaking without him he got very upset not wanting to be left behind.

I don't think that Miles could love his grandparents anymore. When they weren't in the room he would be asking for "baba? mama?" Here's their view from the front deck.
We all had such a great time. It was a wonderful last chance for us to take a trip as a family of 3 and relax before little baby girl arrives.

A huge thank you to my parents for making this trip memorable. We miss you when you're away but can't wait to visit next year (although our family will soon be taking up a whole row in the plane!).
