Pleasure Pier…Galveston Island


A new boardwalk pier built after Hurricane Ike…stunning!


The new carousel is full of brilliant beach colors…




This my friends…is the look of a toddler seeing the ocean for the first time…well in his little memory.

Pure wonderment and joy…


Oh boy…Mommy is letting me touch the wet sand…

When is the last time….you were THIS excited over a simple thing in life?

Thank you for coming back time and time again on this blog. It makes me so happy to see you here.

But for most of all…for the excitement you generously show on our grandson.

Seriously, If I didn’t have some creative outlet for him…I think I would explode…smile☺
