Our First Family Vacation - June 2012 (Post 3)

Friday, June 29, 2012
We decided to spend the day in Galveston on Friday.  I don't know what I was thinking.  I was so excited to bring the girls on the ferry and to The Strand.  The Strand is definitely not a fun place for little ones.  Too many shops with breakable things.  Eben and Katie had no fun, and Kinsley slept the entire time.  Next time, I will go by myself.
On our way to Galveston.  We sat in line at the ferry for atleast 30 minutes.  Katie kept saying, "Are we there yet?"  She is so impatient.

Photobombed by Katie...LOL.

We saw dolphins right before we made it to Galveston.

 It took forever to drive down the Seawall to get to The Rainforest Cafe.  As soon as we walked in, a huge snake (fake) was hanging from the trees in the giftstore and they both freaked out.  The lighting wasn't too good for pictures, but we did the best we could.
Kinsley was very somber during our time at the Cafe.  She was not sure about all of the noises and movements that the animals made.  Her face was cracking me up the entire time. 
 Katie wasn't sure about all of it at first either, but she quickly got over it and enjoyed it all.

 This is my favorite picture of Kinsley at The Rainforest Cafe.  She was so ready to leave.

 Eben and I both ordered the shrimp platter. Oh so expensive, but oh so good.

 I took the girls on a ride in the underground lazy river at The Rainforest Cafe.
Neither one of them enjoyed it at all.

By the time the ride was over, Kinsley was in my lap wrapped around me and Katie's head was inbetween my legs.  They took a picture of us before we got on the ride and we could pick it up at the end of the ride, but the girls were so freaked out that they wanted to leave quickly.
 After The Rainforest Cafe, we went to The Strand for a little shopping.
 Kinsley slept the entire time.
 Right before we left, we stopped by the old time ice cream shop for a cool down from the heat.
Kinsley still wasn't over the horrifying experience of The Rainforest Cafe.

Kinsley's attitude completely changed after the ice cream.

Some of my favorite pictures that I took during our vacation happened on the walk back to our car.

They were being so incredibly sweet to each other on our way back to the car.

 We saw more dolphins on our way back to Bolivar Pennisula.  There were at least 6 playing around.  They were too fast to catch out of the water, but I did happen to catch one of their fins.  It's on the left.
 Seagulls and ferries just go hand-in-hand.
 Pelicans are huge.
