Galveston Vacation!

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.

I squeezed in a little pool-side embroidery!

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.

Aren't they pretty?

I love this lady!

Anyone will tell you, dear reader, that the seagulls there will eat anything to hold up for them.

After we ran out of french fries, the girls gave them my homemade cookies! How dare they?

Casey's for some awesome crab cakes!

This was the twin's first time at the beach! It was perfect!

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.

Cool thing on the wall...

After tromping thru the aquarium trying to find the shark tunnel thing...

...and going thru the whole place twice...

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?

In case you can't tell them apart, Emily on the left, Annie on the right.

Besides the baby penguins, this guy was the cutest saddest thing. He would just walk back and forth, trying to break free from his oppression... I delighted in his sorrow.

  1. I went to Galveston when I was about 13 years old and really liked Moody Gardens. I'm not much of a water person, but I did fill a small kiddie pool with over 100 hermit crabs that I'd found in the ocean. :) Glad you guys got to have such a great experience together! And very cool that you so thoroughly documented some of your escapades!
