Galveston Day 5 – A Good Day to Boogie

On Thursday, Grannie came down to Galveston for a couple of days to spend being a beach bum with me. I couldn’t have been happier because we got to go walking all along the beach picking up all the shells and I do mean all of them – I have like a bucket full. I also got to show her how to boogie board. I thought it was so cool that my Grannie even got out there and tried to boogie board all by herself. She did awesome! I told her it was a good day to boogie and I was right. Pics of those will come when we develop the film from the waterproof camera – yep I said it – develop film. We bought an old school waterproof disposable camera so we could take it out to get action shots and I have a feeling it will pay off.

After our time at the beach, we went to Pleasure Pier for some dinner and fun on the rides. We ate at Bubba Gumps – Stupid Is As Stupid Does. After that, we went to ride the scary rides. Daddy stepped up right away and said he would ride the teacups with me while mommy went with the the boys to ride the Iron Shark – it may have been taller and faster and had loops, but my teacups spun around pretty fast so it was kinda the same – at least to me and daddy. Even though mommy asked daddy several times if he wanted to go ride the larger roller coasters, daddy insisted he would tough through my rides. Based on the amount of screaming he did on my rides, mommy and I think my rides were all he could take – so far no denial.


Galveston – Day 3 & 4

So somehow I missed posting for day 3 – its vacation so all the days blend together and I don’t do schedules so I guess I wasn’t really late.

The last couple of days has been busy with boogie boarding, swimming at the pool, and fishing. I did find out that Tio can’t take a very good picture as you will see below.

Not saying much this post because I got to get my beach on.


Galveston Day 2- The Beach

Smiles are still on everyone’s faces, but one thing I’m learning is that having a sibling is so different from being the only focus in my parents eyes. There are some brothers here that are always trying to get under each other’s skin and they usually do. It’s funny to see how quickly they can push each other’s buttons. The little brother was convinced he got stung by a jelly fish, but turns out his big brother just scratched him with his toenail to scare him – it worked because little brother left the beach with his arm wrapped up.

Anyway, today was all about the beach – sandcastles, waves, boogie boards. The one thing I love to do is run into the waves and see if they can knock me down – the answer is yes, but I get right back up and ask for more. I think I did this for hours. Daddy and mommy kept saying how big I was getting and how much easier it was this year versus last year because they didn’t have to hold me up or jump with me above the waves since I know how to swim and knew to hold my breath this year if I went under – glad I could make your life easier, but just keep this moment in mind when you think I’m a handful – it’s a trade off.

I’ve gotten so big that this year I’m boogie boarding – nothing like water boarding so it’s all good. To me it was like Riding Giants – waves crashing in over me – feeling like I’m on the verge of going out of control, but riding high on the waves – I’m hooked. I think I’m going to be a beach bum/surfer when I get older – I haven’t broken that news to my folks yet, but they seem so happy that I’m doing it now so what’s the big difference, right?

After all that, it was time to chill by building some sand castles. That is really not my forte because we spend all that time making castles that seem to fall in no time – fall or I knock them down that is. whichever, it is relaxing to me – zen if you will.

So far, so great. Keep you posted.
