If everything goes as plan, we will be staying at this beach house in Galveston. It's right on the beach, and the kids are super excited! We are going to be there for a week in July. We haven't been to the beach since 1997. I know... so sad! I really wanted to go to a beach in Alabama or Florida, but now with the oil spill and all, I am glad we are going here. Yes, it's not white sand beaches, but it's a beach and that's all my kids care about!! A beach is a beach to kids! Need to start working on my tan!
