It has been so long since I last blogged, I couldn't remember my password!
Well, we are in Galveston. We have been here for 4 days and have 3 more to go. Cody is taking CME so the kids and I are hanging out while he takes classes in the mornings. We have had a lot of fun. We went to NASA on Monday and the beach that evening. Joshua was of course the only brave one to go out far into the ocean. Maude and Aidan were happy with the sand. Tuesday we went out to Cody's Aunt and Uncle's house (they live here in Galveston). Which ended up to pretty close to par for us. Joshua cut his leg (which ended up having to be glued shut by the end of the evening). Apparently a palm tree jumped out and tackled him to the ground. That is about all we could get out of him. Then as we were leaving and saying our good-byes, Aidan locked Joshua out of the only door they have in their house. Which in turn ended up breaking and we were all stuck inside with Joshua on the outside. (Sound familar ref. story Schwan man story, only this time their was no Schwan man) Cody and his Aunt had to climb out of a window (Cody not so graceful). After taking apart the door we were finally freed. As you can imagine it was a long ride back to the hotel. With Joshua's run in with the tree we couldn't swim today. So we walked them to death. We went to The Strand (shopping), a railroad museum, and then the beach to look for shells. Joshua and Aidan collected a ton of hermit crabs. I even saw Maude pick one up trying to be brave like the boys.
We have 3 more days, wish us luck. Swimming is out for tomorrow too. Aidan and Joshua got into a fight tonight and broke open Joshua's cut. So we have to go 24 more hours before we hit the pool. I know each one of you that are reading this are just smiling and thinking I wish I could be there with them.


  1. Yikes! Sounds like fun to be at the beach, but not really if you are Joshua. We'll be there in a couple of weeks and I'm hoping for a pretty uneventful stay I guess. Tell the kids hi for us!

  2. We had a lot of fun. We found a beach without seaweed and the kids really enjoyed it.
