** Warning: Picture Overload! **
Micah's parents came in this weekend, so Saturday we decided to head down to Galveston for the day. We started at Moody Gardens, stopped at the beach to let Little Man experience the water for the first time, then headed to the strand to have dinner and shop a little before we left. Below, you can enjoy parts of our day through pictures.

I think this was the penguin aquarium
He enjoyed watching the turtle swim around
And of course he LOVED splashing in the water.

When we got on the boat, Little Man (and the rest of us) were ready for a snack
Enjoying the boat ride
It was so hot...Little Man was eating all of Daddy's ice

After a small nap, Little Man woke up and was ready to explore. I didn't get any pics, but he loved the butterfly exhibit.
Looking at the animals
Grandpops bought Little Man some big, chocolate covered pretzels. I think he LOVED it. Once he sucked off the chocolate, he threw the pretzel at his daddy.
And he really loved the beach. I took him with me last year on a ladies retreat in Galveston, but he was 3 months old and only saw the beach when we walked on it a few minutes. This time he loved playing in the water.
He would sit and wait for the waves to come up,
Then laugh and splash when they reached him.
He had no fear of the water.
Had we let him, he would have run straight out into the ocean. We had to chase him more than once.
I didn't take any pictures of dinner and the strand. We weren't there for long. But we had a great day in Galveston!
