It was such a special time to me. First of all, I really enjoy visiting with my family. But even more, it took me back to the days when my children were young and Aunt Fran would come down to Texas for a week of day trip sight seeing or an overnight stay someplace new.
Brandi and Meagan are just a year apart, so many of their childhood 'adventure' memories are the same. This time around, they were able to revisit some of those memories with their children in tow.
Thursday we went to Galveston Island to enjoy a little Beach Time:
|Beach Babe, Delayne enjoying the sun and the waves.|
|Surfer Davin...what a daredevil he is!|
|Family lunch at Tortuga's Cantina while we waited to get into our hotel rooms.|
The we checked into Hilton's Galveston Island Resort for the night:
|The beautiful view from our room of the pool and the Gulf of Mexico in the distance. (It actually looks blue from here!)|
|Sarah, Davin, Tiffany and Brianne in the pool|
Friday morning we spent a little more time in the pool until check out..then we headed to Space Center Houston:
|NASA's Space Center Houston|
|Joey and Brandi on the tram tour|
|Sarah, Davin and Brianne anxiously awaiting a tour of Johnson Space Center.|
|Now this is a robot with style!|
|One of the spacecraft used in training.|
And finally, dinner on the way home...Aunt Fran's choice:
|Dinner at Joe's Crab Shack: Yes, most of us ordered the crab, but don't these girls look good in their bibs?|
|She loves lemons!|
We had a great visit...Bri, Meagan and I teasing them about us enjoying their vacation. Aunt Fran and I reminisced about watching our children playing in the surf and gazing at all the displays at Space Center while watching our grandchildren enjoying those same sights now. It was a wonderful weekend. We just wish that Kelli and the kids had been able to join us too.
I will close with this picture of our entire group from NASA:
