Our Family Day

Yesterday was a pretty good day.  Chris and I decided that we needed to use one of his vacation days to actually do something fun and family oriented.  So what did we decide to do?... Take the girls on an adventure!
We started the day with a trip down to the beach.  We had the t-top down on the jeep and even though it was hotter than hell, we survived!  The girls slept most of the way down to the beach but once we got on the beach they woke up and were pleasently surprised where we were.  They kept saying "Beach mommy beach!"

They loved seeing all the seagulls and seeing the waves hit the shore.  Too bad Ashley had an ear infection or we would have totally let them out on the beach to play.  The last time they were on a beach was also the first time they were on a beach.  Maybe next trip we can let them play. 

From the beach we decided that we should take a ride on a BIG boat.  The girls were totally excited about that and were very anxious to get on the boat.  This was their first time on the ferry so of course we had to take pictures...

Oh how they enjoyed the boat ride and we got to see dolphins. 

We then made our way to the Railroad Musuem in Galveston on 25th street near the cruise terminal.  They really really enjoyed the train musuem.  They played with all the extra gadgets they had on display and just squealed with excitement. 

We now know what to get them for Christmas...

...and by them I mean Chris!!

We then road to Kemah and suprised them with an actual train ride that they have on the boardwalk.  They were so very surprised and excited to ride on a choo-choo train.

and that was the end of our day!  They slept pretty much the entire way home and are still talking about boats, and trains today.  I am so glad we got to take them to see something they really enjoy.  I've already started looking up party decorations for a train party come January.  I wonder where we can rent a trackless train for possible train rides?!
