Family Vacation in Galveston

 Vacations always come and go so fast, this one in particular went lightening fast!  We had such a nice time together, the weather was lovely, the sky's were beautiful and warm breezes off the gulf, made for lots of family fun!  This year Chad rented a pickup truck so he could haul his new kayak down.  He and Matt took it out in the surf a few times, while Candice and I relaxed at the units and the boys napped, since I wasn't present...I have no photographic eveidence of that event, but it sounds pretty cool!  Casey opted to stay home and work this year, arguing that he needed to earn a living rather than lounge on the beach, in spite of our concerted efforts to  tempt him to join forces with us and escape the rat race, he would not be disuaded.  No problem, his unit just goes back in the pool for next year.  He has to vacation eventually!
First thing we have to do is feed the Seagulls
