Last weekend, my family was invited to explore Galveston Island along with a group of bloggers thanks to Carnival Cruises and the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau. It was a super-fun trip — I haven’t been to Galveston since college — and we had an amazing time.
But Y’ALL. Taking a toddler anywhere is HARD. We’ve traveled overseas, visited Minnesota, and headed to New Mexico, but this was by far the hardest trip I remember. We wanted to see and do so much this weekend, and I think we overdid it.
We spent most of the day Saturday at Moody Gardens, cramming as much into the day as possible. Saturday night we decided to stop by the Galveston Beach at sunset to take some family photos.
Small aside: Do you know how freaking hard it is to get a toddler to look at a camera sitting on a tripod? I think I took 100 pictures just to get these few. But hey, it’s always worth it, right? This is my family, and I love them!
This was the perfect way to end a busy day. We were able to decompress and spend some time together. We didn’t care about Andrew messing up his clothes, and he was able to just splash around and be a kid.
With Pleasure Pier in the background, this was the perfect spot to take photos as the sun set. After spending the weekend there, it’s no surprise to me that Galveston Beach was named among the best beaches in the nation.
I can’t wait to share the rest of our trip with you! Have you ever been to Galveston Beach?
