Ahhh... the beach!
Thanks to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, my dad is a cancer survivor. Now, my mother's best friend is part of the club! Darlene had to go down for one of her check ups and decided to take everyone with her and make it into a vacation.
We were all pretty excited to get to Galveston which is about an hour south of Houston, even the condensation from my can of Diet Coke was happy! :)
We spent one night in Houston while Dar and my mom went to her check ups. Shannon, Annie, Emily and I spent hours in the Houston Galleria, oh the sacrifices we make. ;p After that we spent a little time pool side to ease our tired bodies.
These 3 have been chums since before they were born! Dar and mom have been best friends/worst enemies for centuries!
We finally got to Galveston and had a pretty good view of the ocean from our hotel rooms.
Casey's for some awesome crab cakes!
The straw mats we got at Wal*Mart stunk to high heaven but they sure are cute and handy! The waves were awesome so I taught them how to boogie board, cuz I have such sweet moves!
We went to Moody Gardens and sweated all thru the Rainforest Pyramid.
WE FOUND HIM! This is above my head! It was crazy.
The Palm Beach at Moody Garden was pretty cool, I love a good lazy river, but not when a 6 ft man is floating in front of me laying thru 4 inner tubes! How rude?
Shannon learned how to fence... not really, you believed me didn't you?
