Well September was here and now it's on its way out!! That is fine with me......since on Sunday we were able to say hello to wonderful FALL!! We had the most beautiful day.
Last week theHubs and I were on vacation. We didn't go out of state, since we already took a vacation to New Orleans earlier this year. So we did a lot of local stuff. Which was fine with me, I can only walk so much at the moment. I'm a big walker....but this baby thinks it's fun to lay really low in my tummy. OUCH!
One of the days we drove out to Galveston!! It was very relaxing...the only complaint I have is the new parking system now. You have to pay to park at the seawall!! First you call the 1-800 number, then confusingly enter your license plate number, enter the special location code, then you have to use a cc or bank card to pay. Why don't they just install the electronic parking meters? After a frustrating 15 minutes of dealing with the phone....looked up the web page and downloaded the app., much easier than the phone number....but you have to enter the same things....plates, code, and cc number. Oh well, we finally figured it out and got it done. Then we enjoyed the day.
We relaxed at Murdochs......ocean views, nice breeze, rocking chairs and if you wanted to get a drink they sold some inside. Murdochs is like a gift shop - lots of stuff to buy: shells, shirts, trinkets, postcards, drinks and more.
After relaxing we walked over to the Pleasure Pier. It's closed during the week, that was fine. Like I was going to get on any of the rides. We had dinner at the Bubba Gump restaurant... we've eaten at the one in NYC and the one at Universal Studios in CA. The food was yummy!
After dinner we walked off some calories on the beach. Here is Mommy, Daddy and baby Belly with our toes in the sand! I'm starting to not see my feet anymore (*_*)
