Galveston Family Vacation

Jackson wanted to stay awake so bad because he was so excited to see the beach. But when we arrived he was already passed out.
Dinner at Joe's Crab Shack 

Morning show with the cousins. They are all so serious.
He is not.
Opening their vacation surprises from Ya-Ya.

The Oates clan went fishing and caught a sting ray.
Jackson had a fever and threw up once so he was quarantined for the day.
Poor sweet guy.
This big boy also took his first steps at the beach house while running away from Uncle Brandon and to me. 
Lots of reading took place this vacation.

And eating...
Shopping on the strand
Matching outfit picture
Matching PJ's
Booty Pop. And future blackmail picture for Jackson.

We rode the ferry for some free fun.

Then we took the boys to The Rainforest Cafe for dinner and Jackson got to pick a toy with the money Mom Ruth gave him. I am surprised he hasen't worn out the batteries yet.
I promise the boys were having fun.

Jackson pretty much skipped dinner and ate this Volcano Cake.
Saturday we spent the morning at the beach and tried to ignore all the Seaweed.
Boys and Mud.
They tried to fly a kite but it wasn't quite windy enough to keep it going long.
The Nalepa's beautiful beach house.

I love these boys of mine
And seersucker

Before vacation was over we visited the Space Center and saw lots of "space ships". Jackson loved it, but we were all pretty tired and needed a nap.

What a great family vacation. Can't wait to do it again next year.
