Training Ideas for a Young Super Hero

1. Gather together all your super powers so you'll be prepared for any situation.

2. Learn from history--namely the U.S.S. Lexington. One of the greatest WWII aircraft carriers, Lady Lex, as she was called, is now docked in Corpus Christi Bay. This tour could have taken all day, there's that much to see. Lots of climbing of ladders and big airplanes on top, what an interesting outing for a 3 year old (and his parents)!

3. Ride the shuttle to and from the Lex--Heaven knows you'll be walking enough inside the ship!

4.Remain cool, calm and collected inside the cockpit of a plane--Yeah, you've got it going on!

5. Ride on the Wings of Angels--The Blue Angels, that is.

6. You think you've just found the perfect beach for a moment of relaxation. Ha Ha! Surprise training: jellyfish and biting flies! Your mission is to high-tail it back to the car without getting stung by the jellyfish, and limiting the number of fly bites.

7. Know the ins and outs of Ferry Boat rides. Be sure to close the car windows before the flock of attacking seagulls you're feeding bites Daddy's finger! (This really happened. It was freaky!)

8. Upon arrival at a new beach, check your surroundings for any dangerous critters or sealife. Everything's great at this beach!

9. Overcome fear of waves. Play for hours in the surf.

10. After a day at the beach, board a sunset sightseeing cruise to get the big picture. Spot several wild dolphins swimming along with the boat.

11. Avoid getting "special droppings" on your head from the seagulls that follow you the whole boat ride.

12. Take a moment to reflect on all you've learned.

13. It's okay to crash on the way home. You've had a busy weekend. Congratulations, you passed your training course!


  1. Awww what a great post!!! Biting flies and jellyfish. EEK. Seriously. Glad you found a better one...too bad you had to witness a scene from Alfred Hitchock's "The Birds". But I loved this post. I could almost taste the salty air.

  2. You never disappoint! Awesome post, as always.

  3. Are you saying that there's really a coast where the water is actually warm enough to play in it??

  4. I think he's well on his way to becoming a superhero. Just like his cousin, Reed, who brought home his yearbook today and was voted "most likely to become a superhero"
    Coincidence? I think not
    I've heard that superhero's run in families...

  5. Funny! Scott was pecked in the head by a bird at the outlet mall in Woodburn. It was the weirdest thing in the world. It just swooped down and pecked him in the head. I was laughing so hard I was no help at all. He ended up with a small cut and a serious fear of low flying birds:) Cute pics, Ty's getting so big and btw I love love love the wall. XOXO

  6. I love how this post was like a story. Good writing, Sal, good writing. I really enjoyed it :) Sounds like you live in a very interesting part of the country. How great that you get to experience something different!

  7. I am so stinkin jealous...I want to be in your Texas!

  8. Thanks for being so willing to share and let us copy your vacations. Hours apart. :)

    Love this little superhero. Thanks so much for all you are doing for me- the song, the child tending, the lidocaine producing, the always building! SO happy you are in my life!
