To the Aquarium We Shall Go

Several years ago (on our first trip to Galveston), we took the girl to Moody Gardens. And we visited every exhibit, attraction and corner of that place. Taylor has historically been against going back but her friend, H, really wanted to see the aquarium. Honestly, it's the best part and after T lost her for a bit at Schlitterbahn the day before (absolutely NOT on purpose), she felt it only right to oblige.

It was a rainy morning and spending it at the aquarium was PERFECT. See?

The shark tank was probably my favorite part...

...and that was BEFORE this happened. Best. Picture. Ever.

After snapping a few outside pics...

...we headed to Rainforest Cafe for a nice last meal on the island. Are they not the cutest???

The food was great and the atmosphere was even better. And now this pic is my favorite ever. I precious is she??

Last up was some last minute souvenir shopping. Because it's not a real vacation unless you have the %-shirt (or, in my child's case - hoodie) to prove it.

All in all, we had an amazing and relaxing time away. It was the perfect balance of activity and lazy beach bum, if you will. And now we're back in busy mode - goat duty (yes, a new fella), a new truck, back to school and so much more. But that will obviously need to wait for another day.
