It's spring break for my girls and I (the great thing about homeschooling is that you can declare breaks when it best suits your schedule...I wanted it to coincide with our trip to Texas and Easter so that's why we are on break this week).
My mom and stepdad recently moved to the Houston, TX area and so we took a long weekend and headed down to see where they now live. The weather was sunny, warm and dry - completely the opposite of where we live so it was great.
We took a day trip down to Galveston to see the island and the Gulf of Mexico - again, a very different coastline than what we are used to here.
We saw several Man of War jellyfish washed up on the beach, and from what I've heard and read, you don't want to touch one of these. Another name for this is the "floating terror".
We had hoped to go to the aquarium at Moody Gardens, but it was closed for renovations. Instead we went through the Rainforest pyramid and that was a pretty neat exhibit. I was going to say cool, but it was anything but cool...it was hot and humid!
