Galveston, Part I

I only managed to get through half of our pictures today. I went to the grocery store, Ella had a friend over to play, I took an afternoon nap (hooray!), tried a new recipe for dinner that was SOOO good (I'll post it tomorrow), and went in to work for a few hours. Needless to say, that with Preston eating non-stop still there wasn't much time for editing pictures.

The adventure begins (Preston is mastering his hand-eye coordination...welcome to a whole new world!).

Happy at the Hotel (we stopped at the Dollar Tree for last minute sand toys and found princess books too!) and were very quickly TIRED at the hotel. Addie fell asleep instantly when Mike started rubbing her head and Preston and Ella weren't far behind.

We scoped out some of the remaining Hurricane Ike damage and then found a nice private area of the beach to campout for the day. As we were driving there Ella said, "I can't wait to jump in the waves!"

Preston was quite a trooper most the day. It took him awhile to fall asleep each nap (he took 3 while we were there), but once he did, he slept really well! He LOVES to hold things...he's always clenching something in his fists.

"Do you really expect me to sleep in this sandy, windy place?!"

Mike and I both noticed this cute row of houses...
he took a picture from the water and I took the other one while waiting for Preston to fall asleep.
