Sydney's Present From Hillbilly Handiworks

Tonya from Hillbilly Handiworks did such a cute job with her presentation,I left it the way I received it for Sydney to unwrap.

We actually let Sydney open it early on the way to our destination for vacation.

She was getting so excited to see what it looked like.

At last,she loved it.She had to take it everywhere we ate on  vacation,even if we stayed in the hotel room for dinner.Thankyou Tonya from Hillbilly Handiworks for doing such a wonderful job of her personalized placemat.You can find Hillbilly Handiworks on Facebook and Etsy.

Vacation-Galveston and The Kemah Boardwalk

Who said Texas doesn't have some great
places to vacation?
It was just hot but lots of fun.

You could simply shop or get an all day pass for the rides.
They also have an aquarium where you can feed the Stingrays.
They have a speed boat that is $12.00 per person $10.00 for kids.Expect to get wet...the boat is called "The Beast" and it lives up to it's name. It also stops so you can observe the dolphins.

Sydney loved the carousel,it is not often you see a 2 story carousel that you get to walk up the stairs to ride too.

What a beautiful boardwalk!

 Sydney is watching for the dolphins from a boat in Galveston.It was not a speed boat like the one in Kemah.

The Seagulls were everywhere.
Our daughter had a blast chasing them around and feeding them.

We tend to want to go somewhere far away for vacations but this was around a five hour trip or less.

                              There is beauty all around us.
