beach trip!

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!

ready!

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!

great trip!


and can't wait to go again :)

  1. So fun! We're 20ish minutes from the island. Which means NASA is 20ish minutes from the island. Let us know if you ever want a tour. Or a beach play date! We love going down there. :)
