Summer Vacation Time Galveston Style

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my posts. Thanks!

Last week we were able to get away and enjoy some rest, relaxation and fun as a family.  Wow.. it was a much needed trip!

Once school is out, I fool myself thinking the end has come to schedules and routines and overall busy-ness.  I forget (for a brief moment only!) that June is the busiest month of the summer for us.  We have Vacation Bible School, this year my son had two camps scheduled back to back, we’re all trying to adjust to our new summer routine, I’m trying to remember how to balance work and family time, and on and on.

So, by the time we were ready to leave for Galveston on July 4, I was ready!  This trip was the perfect way to kick off the rest of the summer.  From this point on, we really are in a much  more relaxed mode…. YEA!!

This picture collage shows some of our favorites from the week.  Fireworks the evening of the 4th, a trip to Moody Gardens on Galveston Island, a harbor cruise that took us through parts of Galveston Harbor and Galveston Bay, the beach, and a trip into Houston to visit the NASA Space Center.

All in all… a really great trip!

If you’ve never been to Galveston, you should really think about it.  It’s a great island with lots to see and do.  It has that great relaxed feeling I think we all want to have when we are on vacation.

I know we’re not the only ones spending some family time on vacation.  What does your family like to do for vacation time in the summer?

    Looks like a beautiful place! We went off for 10 days to the heart of Amish country to the Sight and Sound Theatre and visited the surrounding towns. Then on the way back home to NY we stopped in Cooperstown for the Baseball Hall of Fame for the guys and antiquing for me! I needed a vacation from my vacation!

    A change of scenery usually is all it takes to have the strength for the “old grind”
