Vacation, pt. 1

While the boys are off taking care of the car issues and we are stuck chillin' in the hotel, it seems like an appropriate time to update the blog and share some pics from our trip so far.

Woo hoo! We made it to Texas.
Brad and HanNah

First stop: Galveston
The fabulous view from our hotel- the pool and the beach
Enjoying the beach!
Ate dinner at Landry's
(Caesar salad counts as seafood right!?! The dressing is made from anchovies, at least...)

Next Stop: Houston
Museum of Natural Science
Health Museum 
(lesson learned--Derek has more unique features than me)

The aquarium
Derek's checking out the sharks overhead.

After the aquarium we headed out to the movies. Derek and I went to see the movie Losers while Brad and HanNah saw Robinhood. We then headed back to the car, all got in and hear a loud popping sound. Derek diagnosed it as a problem with the shock on the back right tire. We then proceeded to spend a good hour in a Chipotle parking lot trying to figure to out how to get back to the hotel. All the rental places were closed, a taxi would have cost an arm and a leg. Thankfully HanNah's friend from college came to get us! The boys have the rental and are taking the car to the shop and hopefully it will be ready by tomorrow so we can head home. 

Despite the car issue, we're having a great time. It's even been nice just lounging in the hotel this morning/afternoon reading a book, watching tv, and of course updating the blog. I think the plans for the rest of the day include shopping and maybe the zoo.

  1. I have never been to Texas, but Galveston seriously looks gorgeous!

    And I love aquariums. It is like a sick pleasure of mine to go to aquariums and look at all the exotic fishies! :)
