Grams and Papa have gifted us a family membership to Moody Gardens several years in a row now- and every year about this time they hold the grand opening of the little beach/water park Palm Beach, open to members only!
We LOVE going on this day because it is so calm, relaxed, and NOT crowded. And of COURSE we visit the Aquarium and Rainforest pyramids while we're there too. We didn't do any 4D or IMAX experiences this time, but lots of animals were out and active which the kids wouldn't trade for sitting in a dark theatre for the world! Ada even held a butterfly. Probably the most significant event in her life to date. :)
Daddy was a trooper and swam and kept up with the two older kids at Palm Beach while Tate and I lounged in the shade. Everyone slept until 7:30 this morning we had such a packed weekend! (Bridgeland held the annual Naturefest on Saturday which was awesome- as well as a tee ball game!)
