Day Trip to Galveston

Finally! A weekend with no plans at all. Will was not on call and Olivia's plans changed so we decided to pack up and head to Galveston for the afternoon. We have not been down since Hurricane Ike so it was interesting to see how much is still devastated by the storm. The pocket parks are still there, but the facilities are non-existent. (Last year we were able to use bathrooms and showers, buy snacks and rent umbrellas.) The weather was not as nice as we had hoped, but the kids still had a great time playing in the sand and water while Will and I sat wrapped in beach towels talking about our new house!

Olivia had big plans to dig a huge pool and fill it up with water. (She's wearing her first two-piece bathing suit in years - I'm NOT READY for this little girl to grow up!)

McIver gave the beach a thumbs-up even with all the debris all over the place.
I can't believe I got them to stop long enough for a picture together.
