Beach, Submarine, and Katherine scores

We had a great Easter weekend, we are very blessed. I will post Easter on it's own blog entry later this week. Friday we were off and took the kids down to Galveston with my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew.

We went to Seawolf Park which houses the USS CAVALLA (WWII Submarine) and the USS STEWART (destroyer escort - one of only 3 in the world). We were able to go through the submarine and go on the top decks of the destroyer escort. The kids had fun exploring on the ships, lots of things to touch, climb on, and play with. They also had a playground that is right on the water, so the kids also enjoyed that. After the ships, we went and ate at our favorite burger place on the seawall. Then it was off the beach. The water was a little too cold, but it was a perfect day to sit on the beach and play in the sand. The kids did play on the shoreline for a little while, but Colin was getting a little cold, so we pulled them out of the water. The kids made sand castles, looked for shells, and even discovered jellyfish in the seaweed. It was a nice day to enjoy the sand & sun. The kids weren't ready to go when we left, but Colin was passed out in his seat after being in the car 5 minutes. Saturday Katherine scored a goal at her soccer game, in the RIGHT GOAL. She did really good, was even getting aggressive. She took the ball down from the middle of the field and scored all by herself, beating out two other girls from the other team. If we could just get her to concentrate like that all the time. She was so happy when she scored it!
