It was my Friday off, so I was happy to be able to sleep in a little - Michael got up and left for work while I was still snoozing, then about the time I got up to get Emma up and ready for school my dogs let me know someone was at the door. I really jumped up then thinking at first it was my day to take our neighbor to school...then realized the figure at the door was an adult, with something strange looking in their hand from the way the silhouette looked in the window of the door. I began to get a little worried then I heard a key sliding into the front door and worry turned to fear for about a half second till I logically told myself it was Michael coming back in!
I thought he was just coming back with flowers for me then going back to work, but soon realized he had birthday cake and breakfast and coffee and flowers and balloons!! And then he woke up the kids and we had a little birthday party at 6:00 in the morning!! LOL
And then he told me he had booked us an overnight stay at the beach in Galveston to get away for my birthday!! I share my birthday with a coworker and when I thought Michael was going to be at work I had plans to meet up with a group from work for lunch - since Michael was off he & Aaron joined us and we ended up having a nice little group to celebrate the two birthdays!! After that we headed home and packed, picked up Emma after school, and hit 45 heading south!
We spent time at the hotel playing in the water and had a super yummy seafood dinner out at Pleasure Pier - I had the best shrimp ever! Then the next day we hit the strand and made a must stop at La King's Confectionery! Ya just don't go to Galveston and NOT stop in at La King's!
And oh happy day they were making banana taffy - my fave!
And fun we had and then some!! They rode everything...starting with the carousel, always a favorite!
