We haven't had many visitors this summer, so we were excited when some Houston friends decided to come for a night! We ate BBQ and hung around the house, with kids making s'mores around the fire pit on Monday night, and then on Tuesday we headed to Rockport for some beach fun!
We were hoping to visit the free aquarium, but I didn't realize it was closed on Tuesdays. The free science center opened at 1pm, so we went over to the art gallery first.
While we waited a bit for the science center movie, we had a picnic lunch next door by the bay. The boys were just a little wound up. My friend has four boys and one girl, and they all had a great time!
These next two were taken by my friend...typical Steven Joseph. I had just told him to stop climbing.
Nine kids and two moms rocked the art gallery, science center, and the beach. Supermoms!
They project a movie onto a huge sphere hanging from the ceiling. It's pretty cool. The one we saw was about planets.
Onto the beach...
Miss Colic Queen is just not crazy about our outdoor activities this summer!
But the rest of the kids had a great time!
We will definitely miss living so close to the beach. Hope more friends and family come to see us before we move (hint hint)! And anyone interested in a fun vacation spot in south Texas, check out the quaint little fishing town of Rockport. We love it! Thanks for coming to see us, F Family! We had a great time.
