Day 5: A Day in Galvaston

We took a break from the beach on Wednesday and spent the day in Galvaston.  Our first stop was Pier 21 and a dolphin watching expedition.  I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I was not expecting to get to see that many dolphins!  We had a lot of fun spotting the dolphins in the harbor!

If you look close you can see the dolphins riding the waves in front of the boat! 

Ava really wanted to go to Chick-fil-a for lunch and we thought we had found one but it turns out Galvaston doesn't have a Chick-fil-a...boo!  We settled for the Rainforest Cafe where Carli was quick to ask if we could get the lava cake like Uncle Danny got her last year!  This kid's memory is amazing!  We got seated in an awesome spot - we could see almost the whole restaurant.  Ava really enjoyed the fish...here's her fish face with the added benefit of a pose.

Not to be left out, Naggy & Carli showed us their fish faces...

After lunch we headed over to Moody Gardens to check out the Aquarium and catch a 3D movie about the Monarch Butterflies.

I think Ava was amazed...

So was Grammy, they let her touch a real star fish...

And being the best Grammy/science teacher ever, she helped the girls touch it as well!

The 3D movie on the Monarch Butterflies was pretty awesome.  This was the first movie the girls had seen in a movie theatre.  They did a really good job of keep on their glasses.  The best part was watching them try to catch the butterflies - too bad we couldn't capture a picture of that!

After our movie we decided to head over to Uncle Danny's and then grab a bite to eat before calling it day.  But first, we did manage to get some family pictures...proof that I was on vacation with everyone!
