After our fun at the beach, it was only appropriate to stop at Joe's Crab Shack for lunch. They had this great play area right next to our outdoor picnic-style table. Talmage was much more interested in this than the seafood. And thankfully his wonderful aunt and uncle were more than willing to entertain him!
This was Talmage's reaction when he saw the lobster. Sam and I just aren't fans of seafood, and it looks like Talmage agrees with us. Big surprise, since he isn't a fan of most food...
After lunch, we headed to Brazos' Bend State Park, which is home to over 300 alligators. We were fortunate enough to see at least 20! It's really fascinating to be just a few feet away from alligators with no barriers dividing you from them.
Talmage was very energetic and kept grabbing my mom's hand and dashing off panting, "Run, run, run!"
The alligators are pretty still for the most part. We had a couple of scares when they jumped out of the water to hunt which gave us some good laughs.
Aunt Avalon and Uncle Bronson did a great job helping with the boys!
