Tiki Island

A few weeks ago my dear friend Lauren invited us to a bay house in Galveston owned by some friends of hers on Tiki Island, a little community of bay houses near Galveston.  We decided to take advantage of an inexpensive weekend getaway with friends and drove overnight on Wednesday night, hoping Avery would sleep most of the way.  She slept two hours.  Total.  Kids always find a way to surprise you, huh?  But she was an angel and didn't fuss or cry at all the other 7 or so hours.

We spent the long weekend hanging around the bay house, fishing, eating, and getting some sun.  Avery had a great time playing in the water and hanging out with Davis (2) and Elisa (5).

So sweet

Lauren asked me to pick up a Mexican dress for Elisa when we went to Mexico in March.  I found one so cute I had to get one for Avery too.  Little did we know that we'd get pics of them in their matching dresses!
