Beach Bash 2014

In June we enjoyed some time at the beach with Big Daddy and Lita!  We stayed at a lovely condo on the seawall and this was the view from our balcony:

We consumed lots of yummy fresh seafood.  A couple of our favorite restaurants there are Fisherman's Wharf and Fish Tales.  

Galveston had plenty of sand, sun, salt water and seaweed!  Crazy tall mounds of seaweed!  

We spent two mornings at the beach.  The kids spent most of the time perfecting their  "tummy" boarding skills.  They did a great job and picked up right where they left off last summer!  I've never seen Jarrod or the kids move quicker than when they spotted a gray fin near them in the ocean.  We realized that it was just a dolphin :)

No trip to the beach is ever complete without some serious sandcastle building!  :)

 Feeding the seagulls with Big Daddy!  

The whole gang with our toes in the sand!

One evening we took the kids on their first beach bike ride around town.  We even stopped for ice cream!

One of the newest seawall attractions is Pleasure Pier.  It includes 11,030 feet of fun!

There were rides, midway games, live music and more!  Emma was actually tall enough to ride everything!  She is very brave and adventurous like her father :)  Owen's favorite attraction was the bumper cars!

We had a fun trip and look forward to next time.  Thanks Big Daddy and Lita :)
