My Summer Vacation

Well, the kids and I got back from Texas on Saturday night. We had a wonderful week.
We went to visit my Aunt Dena in Bacliff, Texas. She lives by the bay. it was a beautiful area.
it has been built back from Hurricane Ike in 2008.
On Sunday, We visited with my Aunt and her husband, Feltonio.. My cousin Joe Michael and his wife , Tammy live right next door. My Aunt Marylou and Uncle Jerry came over.My cousin, Fred,his daughter Andrea, and his girlfriend, Monica were there too. It was a sunny beautiful day.

On Monday, it started to rain. It rained on and off for the next 3 days, so Monday, The kids and I went to "Main Event" and played Putt Putt Golf , Bowling and laser tag all day..

Tuesday, We went to the Kemah Boardwalk, Went in the Aquarium there, then we rode to Galveston Island and went to the SEAWALL to get our feet wet in the Gulf. The water was clear. We were thankful for that..

Wednesday, Since it was still raining on and off, we went back to Main Event.. Then
Thursday was my aunt Dena's birthday, so We all went to the Bolivar Ferry in Galveston. We saw the dolphins jumping beside the boat. It was so neat.. It was a beautiful day...

Friday, The kids and I went to Stewart Beach.. The water was clear there too. It was crowded but we had fun....Then Friday night, Joe Michael and his wife, Tammy took us all out to eat at the La Brisa Mexican Restaurant. The staff there sang "Happy Birthday" to my Aunt while she wore a sombrero...lol.. It was fun..

Saturday, We got up and hit the road back to Mississippi. On the way home, we stopped and the "Bass Pro Shop In Louisiana.... We looked around there and shopped a little. What a neat place.

All in all, it was a wonderful vacation, seeing the family.

I miss them already, but i know we have to get back to work and school starts next Monday..

Back to the normal routine, right??

Bunches of hugs...
