Galveston is only about 50 miles from our house so we drove down today to check it out. We had a blast spending a couple hours on the beach searching for seashells and watching Picabo chase all the birds. The water was a bit too cold for us to venture out more than ankle-deep...there were a few crazy er, I mean brave kids swimming though. THANKS Mom and Dad for visiting us! We love you both so much and will miss you like crazy!!
