Galveston trip.....

We left yesterday and headed down to Galveston for a couple of days. We wanted Avery to play in the ocean (okay, Gulf of Mexico) and see what her reactions would be. She as a little skeptical at first but then she began to love the waves and just laughed and laughed. Our day today consisted of beach in the morning, afternoon naps, and then beach again in the evening.....this is the life!!

Paul and Avery waiting for a wave!!

First experience building sand castles.

Last night we made a pitstop to pick up some beach toys, Avery had to go ahead and test them out while we were in the hotel room:
Yes, that is a sand bucket on her head!

We also ventured out last night to eat at the Rain Forest Cafe. We thought Avery would enjoy the scenery and the animals. We were wrong!! She did not enjoy it, she kept telling us she was scared and that was BEFORE the rainstorm came. We were able to finally calm her down and make her happy (Coca Cola works wonders)but I don't think we will be visiting another Rain Forest Cafe anytime soon.

Avery wasn't too sure about the big gorilla outside of the restaurant.

Avery and Daddy

Here she is with her special glass that make her not too scared to sit and eat.

Love this picture of daddy and daughter strolling along the beach.
Life is good!!

So that's our mini-vacay so far......

Happy Thursday!!!

Awwww! Love these ocean pics!

Sorry that RFC didn't work out - we haven't been since Q was a baby. He did great - but since then has a HUGE fear of all things stuffed - like Moo Moo at Chick-fil-a!

He better get it together before we take him to Disney...ha!
