So, this past Summer...we had the luxury of not really having to be anywhere on any particular day with Damon taking a year off from work, and me just working PRN. It was incredibly freeing and WEIRD to just load up in the car with the kids, with a GENERAL plan in mind, but no set plans or set return date. While in San Antonio, we randomly had the idea to take the kids to the Texas coast for 4th of July. We weren't super sure of where to go b/c we aren't well-versed in the Texas coast and we ended up in Galveston.
We looked at going to Kemah, but I couldn't find much information about beaches in Kemah and Gage wanted to go to the beach.... We looked at other places that supposedly have better beaches, but we couldn't find hotel/condo openings b/c it was a holiday weekend and we were last minute planning.
So, we went to Galveston and it was just fine. It was not any of our "dream vacation" by any means, but it had ocean waves, sand, sun, and togetherness: all things we wanted for our road trip.
