My family, who we had not seen in two years, was able to visit us from Tennessee! We had a great time! We were able to fit in alot of the things that they wanted to do like an Astros game, Galveston, downtown Houston and San Antonio.
We went to the Alamo, the River Walk, to eat at my favorite place, Rio Rio, and on the little boat ride around the river. Gabriel decided to play with a cactus on the grounds of the Alamo. Let's hope he learned his lesson with that one! It was so very hot there, but it was still a great day.
We hung out in Galveston and took a trip on the ferry over to Port Boliver. We went to the beach where my family caught hermit crabs and I ran from them because they are really ugly, little critters. There were really pretty views of the lighthouse from the boat.
Then the weather took a turn for the worst. There was a threat of a tropical storm/small hurricane. Luckily it was not as bad as at first expected and there was hardly any damage. Barkley was ready, though, for any rain that came his way!
