A Quick Beach Getaway

It was last minute, spontaneous, and only for a couple of days, but we had a wonderful trip to Galveston at Rhea's clients' beach home in Galveston.

It was fun to swim in the pool, ride waves, hunt for seashells, build a family sandcastle, play board games, and just plain RELAX and be a family.

 It was Sarah's first time to the beach and unlike all our other kiddos at that age, she really enjoyed the sand and water!  The wind was unusually rough and putting up an umbrella for shade wasn't going to work, so we had to bring down Sarah early in the day and late in the afternoon to protect that baby soft skin.

She loved the sand so much, we had to watch her closely as she would eat it.

We hope to get back to the beach very soon!
