Weekend Report - Part 1

So this last weekend my horribly missed girlfriend, Mattie, from Madelyn St. Claire came for a visit!  She lives in St. Louis, and was a bridesmaid in my wedding 5+ years ago!  I was sooo excited and happy to have her visit! Boy, did we have a busy weekend showing her Houston! My sister, Jenn, from Contemporary Harbor  joined us for the weekend fun!

Our Saturday started at the beach...

Unfortunately it happened to be extremely windy and extremely cold that Mattie felt the need to wrap herself in towels!

The wind blew poor Jenn and Mattie right out of their shoes...!

 Actually, that took off and such a hurry across the beach in chase of a hat...If only I had caught it on video...it was priceless!  After a serious nose dive into the sand, the hat was rescued!

 Proof of the nose dive into the muddy sand hole!

Well we survived the beach...however windblown and cold!  We managed to clean up pretty nicely if I must say, and went to Mario's Italian Restaurant in Galveston, TX.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner out on their beautiful patio.
 Couldn't have asked for a better time!  Well...maybe a little less wind! :)

(Sunday events and pics to follow!)
