Christmas Day 23

What a wonderful day we had today.  Johnny took the day off of work and we drove to Galveston to see the festival of lights at Moody Gardens.  It was such a perfect day with my little family. 

We went early so we could walk the beach.

My boy has decided he is a Texan now because it was a little chilly at the beach and he wanted nothing to do with it, and started shivering violently.  It’s his new thing to be really dramatic when he does things.  He kept begging to go back to the car, so our walk was short, but still fun. 


We stopped to walk around The Strand, the historic downtown of Galveston, and it was really fun. 

I found a new favorite store while we were there.  It was a local soda shop/candy store.  They make all the chocolate and ice cream themselves, and it is all vintage.  They even have their workers dress the part which I loved!

The lights were fun again this  year, and RR had a great time. 


RR and his Daddy even got to roast a marshmallow and make a s’more.
