Cherry has a recurring case of Field Trip Envy. Last year, her grandfather’s death kept her from seeing The Nutcracker. She had strep during the visit to The San Antonio Children’s Museum. School budget cuts eliminated another activity. This would go unnoticed if not for her sister’s spectacular luck. Coco has attended every trip, and at least one was added to her grade level’s schedule. It’s a very big deal if you’re seven or nine.
To compensate, Bacon and I promised a family field trip. We had such a good time, we’ve decided to make it a monthly adventure. We’re calling it 24 Hours In . . .Kind of like the NYT Travel feature.
Last weekend was 24 Hours In Corpus Christi, TX. It’s only a few hours to the coast, but it’s been years since we took advantage of the surf. The photos below tell the story.
