Galveston Beach...blech

Thank God that Athena is too young to remember the beautiful beaches of Miami that we have taken her to. Even the Cocoa, Destin and New Smyrna beaches are better than what we have here in Houston. Galveston beach pales in comparison to anything. Up to and including mud. I know it is just the sediment but golly gee, it is gaaaross looking. Besides my commentary on the water we had a blast. Very, very fun. If you know "Parent Barbie", you also know how crazy I am about "the schedule" and certainly about naptimes (aka....off time for us). Well, we were having so much fun that we decided to skip *gasp* naptime and spend all day out in G-town. We truly had a great time. Even Michael said how much fun he had. Athena loves the water and couldn't give a rat's ass that we weren't near her. If it were up to her she would hop on a surfboard or kayak and "be right back" like she says. This girl would get hit by the waves and get right up (sand in eyes and mouth) and do it again, and again, and again. I reapplied sunscreen three times too. We plan on going out there more often b/c Athena really enjoyed it. Saylor was happily either in the car seat napping, on me or in the water with us all.

Sorry, no pictures of Saylor cuz I can't carry a baby, watch out for the toddler and take pictures...will work on it though :)




Love,

Cute beach pictures. I totally understand your complaints and comparisons with Galveston and Destin. Hello, there is none. I am a Texas girl. So, I know what kind of beaches we have here. Anyway, the most important thing is that y'all had a great time. That is awesome.

Wish I lived closer to the beach--what precious pictures!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love making new bloggy friends.

And yes--my hands are overflowing with four very energetic boys, but I wouldn't have it any other way :)!

Seeing as how we don't live any where near a beach, I'd take a muddy beach over no beach any day.
