We packed a picnic lunch to enjoy
Her favorite thing to do was digging in the dirt and collecting sea shells. She probably looked for shells for an hour, walking up and down the beach. I was surprised by how focused and dedicated she was to the effort. And, then she sat down and counted out all 111 shells!
After the beach, we were planning to hit up Paradise Pier. It was a 15 minute drive and this happened before we left the beach parking lot.
She rallied once we got there and, after watching a few rounds of kiddie bumper cars, she worked up the courage to try them out. At first she looked nervous and unsure, but within a few minutes she settled in and LOVED it. We then spent the next 30 minutes doing it!
And the tea cups
And the Texas Motor Car ride
And the carousel
She thought it was hilarious that I was crammed into this little car because she had to have the purple one.
Yes, she made me ride it again and the next time she rode next to me at the back and kept laughing and saying "You're not squished like a bug! There is a lot of room back here!"
It was a great day with Grandpa and hopefully we can make more trips to Galveston this summer.
