Weekend before last we spent the weekend with my parents in Rockport. The Homeyer Clan has been going to Rockport since well before I was born. Growing up my family, my grandparents (sometimes both sets), my Aunt Robbin and my cousins all would go to the Sandollar Motel for a few days and fish and swim and have a great time.
Mom and Dad rented a Condo at Kontiki Condo’s, where the family has stayed the past few years and we jumped at the opportunity to join them and introduce Brooks to this time honored Homeyer tradition. The cousins weren’t able to make it (thanks Gina!) and Mallory wasn’t either (thanks Jouleen!), but Maw-maw and Paw-paw were able to join us on Saturday for the day.
Here are a few pictures and a video from the weekend.
Dad and I attempted to fish…and I emphasize “attempted.” Still, it was beautiful out on the bay Saturday morning and we had a good time.
We were so happy Maw-maw and Paw-paw could join us on Saturday. Although we missed the rest of the family, it has been a long time since we got to spend a whole day with just them. As soon as Maw-maw arrived she took Brooks and he promptly napped in her arms for almost 2 hours! She must have arms of steel!
As you can tell from the above picture on the right, Brooks was the centerpiece of the weekend’s entertainment! Surprise, surprise!
Brooks was in a particularly smiley mood throughout the weekend. It made the weekend that much more fun. He seemed to like his first experience of sand between his toes…although admittedly, his range of reactions is rather narrow.
Here we are relaxing on the patio. I love getting the 4 generation pictures whenever we can. Very special.
It was a great weekend away relaxing on the coast and spending time with mom and dad. Here’s a video captured on the patio. Take special note all the way until the end and you will catch my dad enacting his famous “cast net dance”
It is a hoot!
