After a long days drive last Tuesday David and Laura arrived about 9:30pm, Wednesday was spent getting their beach fix in and then a family gathering here with all of the family. Andy and family had never had the pleasure of meeting Laura, what a great evening we had and what a workout our new smoker got, filled with a brisket and numerous racks of ribs. Oysters fixed a number of ways were provided by our friends Jay & Kathy who joined us for the festivities.

Thanksgiving day David and I spent in the kitchen getting our contributions to dinner prepared, my sister in laws cousin Jim and wife Sherri had graciously invited all of us to here home.

Lots of great food, more than enough to feed the 12 folks who were there for dinner.
Friday, the kids last day in town, we headed to Padre Island National Seashore for a turtle release, due to a recent severe cold spell about 90 juvenile green sea turtles had been rescued and were due to be released.
After the release we headed home and spent the afternoon sitting in the sun on the beach, Dave made an attempt to catch a few fish to no avail, the and I spent the time talking and watching Dave's antics.
Until next time...
