Well, our trip to Galveston was a huge hit with Kaylyn. Wednesday night she was very grumpy and threw a few tantrums on The Strand and at the beach / Seawall, but after a good night's sleep she was pleasant all day Thursday. We ran through the Aquarium and the Rainforest at almost lightning speed just as we expected. Kaylyn did take a few seconds to admire the divers in the big fish tank, pet a starfish, and comment on a little boy's Elmo shoes. After that it was on to Palm Beach. We spent a good 6 hours soaking up the sun, playing in the sand and swimming. Kaylyn has little to no experience in the water but she was dunking herself and trying to swim on her own. My child has no fear. We are enrolling her in swim lessons next week. To shorten this up she loved Palm Beach. In fact, I loved Palm Beach. I will take this man-made beachy playground over the Galveston beach any day.
I FINALLY updated my slideshow to feature Galveston pics. Jack was not with us, so you won't see him there. He hung out with his Nia for a couple of days.
