There's not many things better than a day trip to Galveston on a hot July day. The kids found and captured a tiny jelly fish and were studying it in the bucket:
Hurricane Ike decimated Galveston not even 2 short years ago. Did you know that? Texans have an unsinkable spirit and Galveston was up and running not very long after Ike came to visit. There are few signs of the destruction Ike left.
The kids love going to LA Kings candy store on the Strand. They have all that old time candy-things like WAX LIPS!! This is one of the places hit hard by Ike, but it is re-opened and is still full of charm and sweetness:
