Continuing in my efforts to catch up:
The next weekend Michael and I were off to California for a wedding,
but we made it into a little vacation, and its going to take much more than one post.
So, I will move on to the next weekend when we had family come and visit.
It means so much to us anytime that friends and family come and stay with us,
but this visit was extra special because it was the first time Josh and Krista purposely came to visit us.
They arrived late Thursday evening, and we started the visit off with ice cream sundaes and games.
^^Kayley was most excited for the ice cream
The next day as soon as every one woke up, we packed lunches and hit the road to Galveston.
The girls were so excited to be going to the beach.
They talked about seashells, and Ariel, and all things ocean the entire way.
We also sang Disney songs during the drive.
It took a little longer than expected to find a good beach where we could eat, so by the time we got there we were all starving.
It didn't matter how hungry the girls were though, because as soon as we got there,
they were in the water!
^^Kayley was covered in sand the minute she got out of the car.
They had such a blast, and I had so much fun watching them run and play in the water.
After lunch we let the girls play and search for seashells a little longer.
Well, except for Kayley, we were just trying to keep her warm.
Baby girl made a beeline for the water anytime we put her down, and with the water being so cold, she was freezing!
I love this picture of her and her uncle Michael though.
I also love this video of the older running through the water.
I might have told them to do it.
And then they both fell in, and then they got in trouble.
After the beach, we had to make a quick Walmart run to get the girls some dry clothes,
and then we went to ride the Bolivar ferry.
I brought the bread that was left over after making sandwiches so the girls could feed the seagulls.
^^They loved it!
They thought it was especially when one of the birds pooped right on the back of Michael's neck.
We ended the day with dinner at one of our Galveston favorites, the Spot.
Saturday, Michael started the day by making pancakes for everyone,
then we went to a trampoline/inflatable place called Cosmic Jump.
The girls had so much fun jumping, and sliding, and before long they were worn out.
We came back to the house to cook out hamburgers and hotdogs,
and then while Kayley slept, Michael and I took Ashley and Emily out to walk Buster.
They said it was the first time they have ever walked a dog.
The rest of the day was spent at the outlet mall, and then the drive-in to see the new Muppet movie.
We did squeeze in a short stop at Buc ee's though.
You can't come to Houston and not go to Buc ee's.
At least according to my family.
Michael and I decided to get the girls a little souvenir to remember there trip,
and they were so happy with their little Buc ee dolls.
We had so much fun with these girls, and we were sad to see them go.
I just can't believe how quickly the time goes and how fast they have grown.
One thing is for sure though, they know their aunt and uncle love them SO much!
