We rented a beach house in Galveston the last weekend in September and finally took the boys to the beach for the first time! We've wanted to take them for a long time and the last and only time before we'd rented a house and planned to go was the weekend Ike devastated the Texas coast and so two years later we decided to try again.
On the porch of our adorable beach rental in the Pointe West Community at the westernmost tip of Galveston Island. This ended up being such a great spot, a large private beach and great pools.
I was so excited that Granny & Pa came too! (plus Dana & Ben!)
Adam lead the way to the beach, he was so excited!
The boys had never seen waves before!
I loved seeing it all through their eyes!
Daddy and Adam venturing out into "The Sea" as Adam referred to it, LOL!
There was a little bit of seaweed but Andrew didn't mind
This made me a little anxious but I knew he was in good hands
Andrew was very busy on the shore, were he preferred to be
Adam didn't want to leave the waves he was having so much fun
Andrew loved running away from the waves =-)
But he eventually let Daddy take him out into the water
He was pretty nervous but trusted his Daddy to keep him safe
Pretty thrilling for this little guy!
Hard at work!
Our little family of 4
Our first trip to the beach, what a blast!!
