last week, we took a spontaneous road-trip to the beach!
my dad grew up in galveston and my brother and i spent a lot of summers there but to the boys, it was an amazing, exciting beach!
and we had. a. blast!
perfect temperatures, just the right size waves, great food, amazing fun!
|after dinner, on the first evening...the beach was right across the seawall from our hotel!|
|20 week bump!|
|and the hotel had an amazing pool to wind down in after the waves!|
|the next day, we took the boys to the moody gardens aquarium!|
|that night, we went to dibella's! my (very italian) family has been going here for years...in fact, they have my grandfather's picture on the wall!|
...and his brothers, and his uncles, and his cousins...
|aaaaaaand we met uncle day day and aunt cindy there! uncle david always brings a sack of candy...|
|after dinner, they came back to the hotel with us so the boys could show off their swimming (and splashing) skills.|
|the next morning, they slept till 9am!|
|the following day, we headed to the (free!) galveston ferry!|
|we even saw dolphins!|
|my dad and mike took the boys to the lonestar flight museum while mom and i went shopping at the galveston architectural salvage!|
|then, of course, back to the beach before dinner!|
|too much wave fun ;)|
|dinner at the black pearl oyster bar!|
|and mike and i even snuck in a date while we were down there!|
