Today the boys and I went to Galveston. The weather was just perfect for a trip to the beach. It was a little hot, but the breeze off the water made it just right; and the sky was half full of puffy white clouds, which kept us from being blinded or sunburnt. It was lovely.
We parked on the seawall and spent a couple of hours on the beach below. The boys played happily in the sand while I crocheted. Here's Elijah stomping a spot flat to serve as a foundation.
Noah has been acting goofy when he sees the camera lately. This is the best shot I got of him before the batteries in my camera died. He's wearing our "ugly hat." I bleached it, only it didn't bleach evenly. But it works.
After a while we ate lunch in the car. We had a nice view from the seawall. We watched pelicans scooping fish out of the waves, and guys on surfboards, and a guy flying a kite. After we finished our lunch, we drove back along Broadway. I was delighted to see that the live oaks that were killed by Hurricane Ike are now being replanted. :) I also, as usual, oohed and aahed over all the gorgeous old houses in Galveston.
Then we headed to Alvin, where we had a nice visit with my sister and her lovely daughter Olivia. Then we came home again. The end.
