The weekend after I returned from Pennsylvania, we decided to take a whirlwind trip to Galveston. The kids really wanted to go to the beach, I really wanted to spend some time with them away from home, and one of my best friends needed a vacation, so we loaded up in the van and headed to Moody Gardens for 2 nights and 1 1/2 days the weekend before school started. I don't know what we were thinking. I do know that we just wanted to have some last minute summer fun before settling in to a new routine involving waking up super early and sending our children off to school. It was worth it!
