We went on vacation to South Padre Island for five days during the week of July 4th. I've been wanting to visit there since we moved here, and so we decided it was the perfect time to go as our final vacation before baby #2 arrives. It was a long drive, almost 7 hours, but Ella is a great traveler (thanks to movies on her iPad!) and the long trip was well worth it.
We stayed in a condo right on the beach and our balcony overlooked the ocean. We were on the 5th floor so we had a beautiful view and the condo was fantastic.

Ella was so excited the next morning that she woke up really early - we got to watch the sunrise while we ate breakfast on the balcony, it was really neat

I just love this pic!

Steve took Ella to get her first boogie board and they were so excited to try it out
She's a natural!
