I'm gonna go ahead and say it was 2 to 3 weeks ago when we started having 100+ degree temps EVERY DAY! I don't care when the summer solstice is or when the sun's rays hit the equator directly - if it's 100 degrees in June, it's summer. End of discussion.
Speaking of summer, we had a rather summery weekend. We loaded up the kids and headed to Galveston on Saturday. (AC, don't judge) Let me just tell ya, Perdido Key it aint! I am accustomed to beautiful, white sandy beaches. Their sand is brown and their water is brown too and their water will turn you brown. I made the mistake of wearing my white bathing suit and it's still soaking in stain remover. I mean, it's not dirty in a trash in the water kind of way. Just in a silty water kind of way.
At any rate, we had a blast regardless. The bonus to Galveston over Perdido is that you can take your dog with you without the risk of a $500 fine. This goes a very long way in my book.
Cutest beach baby ever!
Van and I hitting the surf
We could hardly get Nathan to come out of the water. The same goes for van
Playing fetch with Van
Most adorable best friend ever.
This is Van obliging me for about 5 seconds before trying, again, to figure out how to get off of the fishing pier and into the water.
Most precious nephew
This would be me torturing Nate and Van by making them pose instead of play in the waves.
All in all it was a great day and we'll head back again (wearing black bathing suits!!)
