Texas - Time with Friends, Blue Bell Creamery, Bluebonnets and the Beach

We are staying on a Hotel by the Beach in Galveston, Texas as I write this blog posting!  We arrived in Texas on Friday and have had a great time.  We spent the weekend with our friends, the Heddens Family.  We had a great time bowling, at the drive-in movie, and the Houston Zoo.  On Monday, we drove to Brenham, Texas to tour the Blue Bell Creamery.  Our friend Charlie joined us at the tour and lunch.  It was great to see him.  Afterwards, thanks to a tip from our Blue Bell Creamery Tour Guide, we found a nice area with Bluebonnets!   Monday night, we spent time with the Wilson family.  We got to see Moira during her track meet.  Tuesday morning, we drove to Galveston, TX.  Among other things, we spent time touring a WWII Destroyer Escort and submarine, at the beach building sand castles, shopped on the Strand and  collected sea shells! 

Tomorrow, we plan on driving to San Antonio Texas to spend time with  June and Cindy.  By the weekend, we will all be in Austin, TX to spend time with David's parents and brother (his family). So far, it's been a great trip and are looking forward to spending time with our family and friends in the coming days!
