Celebrating Parker's Birthday and Discovering That There Is Life Outside of Kingsville

I apologize for that excessively long title. That might be a record for this little blog. Anyway, Wednesday we had the privilege of celebrating Parker's birthday! We still don't know much about our area, but we decided to get in the car and drive until we found a restaurant that looked promising. We left Kingsville and headed about 45 minutes away to Corpus Christi, and good grief, it's a real city! We have been in Kingsville for a month, where the only two chain restaurants are a Chilis and an IHOP, so venturing outside of our little town and back into civilization was a treat for our bellies. We drove all the way out to the water and found a restaurant right on the water that looked perfect. Of course we had to take pictures like the cheesy tourists that we are.




We ate a Harrison's Landing, and I just can't say enough good things about that place. Our table was overlooking the water, everyone was super friendly, and the food...oh my gosh, the food. It. was. good. It took a little time for our food to arrive, but we were in no hurry and loved looking out over the water and chit-chatting. Check out the view!


Parker had a steak that was good (I'm kinda of the opinion that if you've eaten one steak, you've eaten them all, but maybe I'm just a girl and steak is man food), and I had fish tacos that were out of this world. Exhibit A:


And it's fish, so it's healthy right? I realize it's on a tortilla, but hey, it's not pasta. Anyway, they were delicious and Parker was more than willing to help me finish what I couldn't eat. We went home to open presents and have birthday pie, but Parker said that little outing was the highlight of his birthday. We were both so excited to see that there is life outside of Kingsville, and dinner date nights over looking the water are hard to beat.

Looks like fun! From my experiences of living in rural areas, I totally get the joyful feeling of going back into civilization. Glad y'all were able to do it for his birthday!

Awesome view. Glad things went well. Fish tacos - just the thought of it makes me cringe. not big on fish. Beef or chicken maybe. LOL
