Galveston 2011

The beach!! 

We are blessed to have some family that has an amazing beach house in Galveston.  And better yet, they let their friends and family take over borrow it :)

We love the beach house.  It's easy with kids because we can really spread out and relax, cook meals there and its such an easy drive.  Since Layla was just 3 months we needed easy.  And the best part was is eating breakfast on the back porch while feeling the ocean breeze.  Heaven!!

First family of 5 beach picture!!  Emma and Layla's first trip to the beach.  Grace went when she was about 7 months old so this was her second trip!

This is pretty much how Layla spent everyday at the beach... sleeping.  I don't know what it was about the beach but she zonked for hours every day.  It must have been the sound of the ocean.  It practically lulled me to sleep everyday too!  My sweet friend let us borrow this great tent like thing for kids to protect her from the sun.  Totally recommend for anyone heading to the beach with little ones.  

 We were also thrilled that we had lots of visitors while we were there.  My parents joined us for a weekend... so nice to have an extra set of hands.  Our good friends, Matt and Meagan, and their twins, Ryan and Quinn also joined us for a day.  So fun!!  Can't wait till all these little guys get bigger... friends for sure!  

My 3 girlies... shopping in downtown Galveston.  Gotta get some tshirts!

Last day at the beach!! 
 My Layla bug in her sailor outfit... how cute is this?!!
 My Emmy enjoying ice cream! 
 And my Gracie!  Getting so big!!
Can't wait till next year!!
