Today we spent a wonderful day at Galveston. It was such a fun field day. By the time we got to Galveston which is no more than an hour away for us, the kids were already hungry for lunch, so we stopped and had dinner by the ocean on the seawall.
Then, we headed to the visitors center for more info on all the things we could do there. Let's just say we are going to have to go a couple of times in order to do all the things we want to see and do. The boys had to take a picture with the pirate statue in the entrance of the visitors center. It was so funny seeing them pose.
We then took the ferry to a peninsula in hopes to see dolphins since we heard from multiple people that they follow the boats. Unfortunately we did not see any, I guess it just means we need to take another ferry ride on our next visit. The kids still had fun walking around the boat, feeding the seagulls from the back of the ferry.
After our ferry ride we headed to Sea Wolf park to visit a WWII submarine and battle ship. The kids absolutely loved it. They wanted to go and see every part of the sub and ship.

Logan clever as he is got on one of the bunks and pretended to be sleeping.
Jon was a little nervous going down into the submarine afraid he would not fit, but he did.
See his surprised face!

We ended our day at Galveston at "the Spot" which is a delicious, cute, little burger joint that we had heard a lot about. It was really good, and a very fun environment.
All in all, we spent an awesome day visiting, and enjoying each others company. Let me just say Texas is hot, and we were glad to get home to an air conditioned apartment.
