Beach Trip

Last weekend the family headed South to the Gulf for a little Galveston Beach trip in honor of my Mom's birthday! It was a great time! Here are our best photos!

When we got into town, after dropping our things off at our sweet friend's house (the Donahoe's were so sweet to let us stay with them) we celebrated Nana's birthday with dinner and cupcakes!

Then we took Hallie's first ever walk on the beach! She LOVED it! 

 The next day we spent plenty of beach time!

Hallie and Nana
Cousin Matt had fun boogie boarding!
Shoveling sand was her favorite thing ever!

LOVE this! It's SO me and the little sis!

We went to Mario's for an Italian dinner and the lovely Donahoe Family joined! 
They give the kids dough to play with...once Hallie figured out it wasn't to eat, she had fun!

After dinner, Matthew and Hallie had a little "Photoshoot" on the beach as a gift for Nana
Dress- Gigglemoon

 After pictures we hopped onto the Ferry to look for dolphins!

 See the dolphin?

After the beach we went to lunch...someone was really tired:

Then we did a little shopping and had some ice cream on the strand:

Hallie also got to meet the star of the book Naughty Nana:

We had such a wonderful time! 

Hallie was happy to get home to her puppy Stella though!
