Galveston Part 1

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!!

I miss the beach!
We have such amazing eyewitness testimony of Jesus and just a fraction of what He did while He was visibly present here on earth. Look only to Him! Praying!
1 John 1:1-4 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Looks like a blast! You look great, too, by the way! I might have to check in to a little vacay in Galveston!
