Thursday I was running late getting home and I picked up Ky, so I took a picture of the Dairy Queen sign in town. We love the DQ, yummo!
Friday early morning I headed to Beaumont to meet up with Jamie, I left at 5:20am and at noon I was there. They all met me at the stairs and made fun of me for turning the wrong way in the parking lot!! Then Marcia, Elaine, Kim, Jamie and I headed to lunch, yummo Philly Cheese Steak sandwich for me!! After lunch Jamie and I headed to Houston to pick up Payton and Jean. We got there right on time, Payton and Jean were standing baggage in hand ready for us!! We laughed and talked all the way back to Winnie, picked up my car and headed to Crystal Beach where Linda was waiting on us!! Ohhh the Frederick beach house is awesome!!, we dumped our luggage and headed to eat at Stingaree, it was awesome!! Now I know I was supposed to eat seafood but I have a thing for chicken fried steak and let me tell you it was the best chicken fried steak I have ever eaten!! YUM!!! While we were there the sun was starting to set on the ocean, beautiful, we jumped up and got pictures of course!
After a fabulous night of sleep in the beach house, Payton, Jean, Jamie and I headed to the beach for a morning stroll. There's just absolutely nothing like the ocean, I could throw a chair out and just listen to it all day! It was beautiful! We rode the ferry to Galveston, walked the Strand, visited the Sandcastle contest and drove the sea wall, then headed to Benno's. Awesome shrimp!!!! Yummo!!
Sunday morning we were a little lazy and just enjoyed each others company, it was full of laughing and teasing! After Jamie cooked a wonderful breakfast we headed to a kick butt grocery/gift store, loved it in there! Came back to the beach house and Jamie's dad was there, he was great, I could have talked to him all day! Jamie, Jean, Payton and I headed to the beach for one last walk in the water. Steaming hot day but such a great walk and time with friends.
We stayed in a hotel that night near the Houston airport to see Payton and Jean off to Missouri, then Jamie headed to work and I headed home. I finally got home around 4, I was beat!!! Here is a picture of Nick, he volunteered after he heard me whining about having to get up and get a picture (sad huh?).
