Happy Vacation in Galveston, TX

Well, I finally got a vacation! It was much needed, and so much fun. Leslee and I went to Galveston, TX. In case you don't know where that is, it's right there....that little island in the Gulf of Mexico. We have family there and they ROCK!

We arrived Thursday afternoon and my Aunt Wilma and Uncle Jim picked us at the airport. We stopped at the Olive Garden where I ate some delish chicken alfredo. We spent the day lounging and visiting with the fam. On Friday I was sick with a migraine (and ended up throwing up in a gross Mexican restaurant's bathroom) and stayed in bed half the day. We went on a ferry boat ride where we saw......

Lots of birds.

And dolphins!! I didn't get the best pictures of them. But they were neat. :D

This is a steak house we went to. It was pretty snazzy. I ate a tasty chicken fried steak with creamy mashed potatoes. And the coolest part?? The kid's menu, which was also an activity book.

Yep, that's right. Camping with Dusty. :) :) :)

Other than eating great food, hanging out with the fam, I spent lots of time at the beach.

I made Leslee run into a group of birds to scare them into flying. :) It was funny.

We found a dead fish. I poked it with a stick, just like a small child would, you know, to make sure it was dead.

JJ is the best.

I didn't even know Seth had gotten in the picture! It worked out nicely. :) He's a cutie. He's a Percy Jackson fan, just like me.

And.....I may have gone a little crazy collecting shells. I have plans for them though. Just you wait.

One of the greatest things about my vaca was that I got lots of awesome ocean scape pictures. They have gorgeous sunrise and sunsets there.


Well, that's a short version of the trip, but I didn't want to bore you. Just know, I'm moving to Galveston someday. Peace for now!
