Since we were looking for something fun to do in Corpus and Lucy loves animals (aka aminals, if you are Lucy), we decided to head to the Texas State Aquarium for the morning. Though the day was chilly, overcast and drizzly, we had a really good time. Lucy seemed to enjoy most of the aquarium, and Ben was happy to hang out on my back in the Beco.
After our visit to the aquarium we decided to find something to eat in Corpus. I am ashamed to say that I didn't know of any good, local eateries in Corpus after living within 30 miles of the city for two decades. Since that was the case we called almost all of my family asking for recommendations. Nobody answered there phones. That's okay though, we happened to find a Rudy's Bar-B-Q on S.P.I.D., and were excited to have this unexpected treat (we usually eat Rudy's when we are driving through Waco, College Station or Austin).
We ended our outing with the kids crashing in the car and cruising through Corpus to see what the city had to offer. Looks like my family shouldn't get their hopes up of us moving there any time soon...or at all. A certain person, who shall remain nameless, wasn't as impressed as I'd hoped. That's okay, I've found a six hour car drive with myself and the kids is very doable. So, we'll see you all often enough.
