Family vacation

School starts in one week and we decided it was time to squeeze in a family vacation. Saturday morning, we packed up the kids and headed down to Galveston. We arrived at Schlitterbahn shortly after it opened. Obviously, we were not the only ones with the same idea. It was packed! We left in the afternoon to grab some lunch, check into the hotel, and let the kids relax a little and returned in the evening.

Sunday morning after breakfast, we dipped the kids in the pool quickly, cleaned up and checked out. Then we took the ferry over to Bolivar peninsula. We saw dolphins swimming off in the distance. We drove around Bolivar a bit and then headed back across on the ferry, ate lunch, and then stopped at the beach for sun and fun.

It was great trip and just about the right length of time with a 3 year old and 6 year old.

Ha! It took me a minute to figure out you went to the one in Galveston.

Sounds like a great weekend!
