Summer Fun in The Great State of Texas

We took a quick trip to the beach.

Perfect company.

Fun times.

Wet and cool.

Sweetest sister in law in the world and cousin Jill.
We had supper at Willie Gs that night.


Of course, my family indulged me with some drive by time.

Our trip included Gaido's and Moody Gardens. 
Can you guess where we went?


  1. You look so must have been having lots of where is the picture of you in your swim suit enjoying the water?

  2. I think you visited Galveston! I love it, too! Would love to visit's been a long time!

  3. Looks like you had a wonderful time. Those houses are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing some of your fun time with us.

  4. Trips are so fun and I think they really help bond families together. It looks beautiful there!

  5. I KNOW it was Galveston!!!! Since I grew up in Houston I have been there quite a bit.♥

  6. Galveston is a fun trip! I know it feels good just to get away.:)

  7. Looks like a lovely time, so nice to get away!


  8. It was nice of you to share bits and pieces of your vacation at the beach. Your pictures are so good. I especially like the one of you and your husband. You look so happy. Great photography!

  9. Are Avocados on the menu in Galveston, also? :)

    Nice - a family vacation! Before our older son started his first year in college we took a family vaca to CA. So fun to do! Wonderful memory for all of us.

    Nice play list!

  10. I love fun trips like that! Love the beach and checking out the restaurants and just getting away. Glad you had such a nice time.

  11. It looks like a great time was had by all!! But I have no idea where you were! lol!


  12. I'm guessing Galveston....pretty certain but of course I could be wrong. We've gone there a few times with the kids. It's fun! Last time we went we got a great house at the end of the island, on the beach. It was four or five stories and the top was a room with a hot tub and all glass windows with wonderful ocean views. It was such fun!

  13. I didn't have to guess, but how fun that you got a trip to the beach! Loved seeing you and your family!
    Take care.


  14. I have no idea! This doesn't look like our beaches on the Atlantic with that tower in the background, but the houses could be our way! I'm stumped! Looks like you had a good time with your inlaws, thanks for sharing!

  17. Isn't it nice to get away for a while? Looks like you had a great time at the beach. I'm still finding little piles of sand everywhere as the kids unpack toys and things.

  18. Awww! Galveston is just a hop, skip, and a jump down from Casa St. Michael! But, alas, I am up in OH visiting the other "sweetest sister-in-law in the world!" Enjoy God's Country!


  19. Can you believe I haven't been to the Texas coast since high school? I have no idea why? It looks like ya'll had a wonderful time...I am going to have to check out some places to stay...we need to break out of our routine!

    Love the houses...I am happy that you shared the pics!


  20. I'm not familiar enough with Texas to recognize where you were, but it looked like a beautiful beach. You all looked like you were having fun. You can't beat the beach for a summer getaway.
    We spent summer in San Antonio in 1972, and I spent my early years in Marshall. No beach at eithe, but San Antonio has a river running through it. I understand the Riverwalk is really nice now.

  21. Hi there...I have run into your blog now a few times and I just love it. I made 2 of the lemon cream pies that you have here this past weekend and we all loved it! Love your little Sophia too...we are getting a little grand daughter in 2-3 weeks and her name will be Sophia! I am adding you to my blog list too... Come say hi sometime :D

  22. Looks like a fun time! I'd love to be in the ocean right now - it's soooo hot here!


  23. If it's cool, Stacey, then I don't care where you went. Please just come pick me up and take me back there with you.

  24. Stacey!! You were in Galveston? I live in Galveston! I would have loved to have gotten to meet you! We ate at Guido's tonight! Shoot shoot shoot!!
    Oh, well, that's just too bad.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  25. Stacey, I'm so jealous. I'd love to be at the beach. Great photos. laurie

  27. Stacey - you look so different in these pix than in your profile pic. Of course you're gorgeous in both! Looks like fun. I have no clue where you were. Spill!

  28. Love those beach trips! We had one the end of May and it was great! We spent a lot of time on the beach and just relaxing. Looks like your trip was wonderful. Jackie

  29. I love your pics, I would love to visit there someday ! I bet your all relaxed now and ready to enjoy summer !!

  30. There's nothing like a family vacation especially as the kids get older and we're not quite sure how much longer they will be able to come.
    It looks like you had a wonderful time and the photos are all beautiful. You make a very nice looking family.

  31. Morning Stacey! I want to jump right into these pictures! Hot and HUMID here too and these look sooo refreshing! I'm guessing Moody Gardens???lol It's so nice that you are close to your SIL. I have 4 but I hardley see them. (I think I should change that!) Hope you are settled back in after what looks like a fantastic vacation! Enjoy your weekend and stay cool!! Sincerely, Jeannette
