Galveston Friendcation

Monday, September 3, 2012

This past Spring we were throwing around the idea of a "Friendcation" with all of our amazing friends here in Austin. We invited everyone, looked at condos and finally ended up with 4 couples, an awesome beach house and a 3 day trip planned to Galveston.

We had so much fun driving down, eating seafood, going to the beach and staying up late having girl talk and boy talk.

We each had our own bedrooms and bathrooms and the house had awesome porches where you could watch the sunset.

Needless to say we are already planning next year's trip and can't wait to go back!

Here is the proof!

 Gaido's Seafood Restaurant. I had the shrimp po-boy which was good! Overall though, the food wasn't super impressive.

We headed to the Strand (the downtown strip) for some beach shopping after lunch.

 Bottled sharks anyone?
 Some of Friendcationers! Cami, Lindsey, Blakely, Jason and Kasee
 Jason loves Baby Maya!

On to the beach!

 We were just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. It isn't the prettiest but it was perfect for us. 
The kids loved it too.

 Adorable Steph and Andy
Charlie and Lindsey marching in the sand!

Amelia had fun playing too!

And so did Jason and I!

Amazing Cajun seafood at Benno's-definitely go here if you are in Galveston!

And of course, don't forget the ice cream!
 Our house!

We love the Cragun family!
 The whole gang! We love y'all!
Such a great trip! Can we go back now please?
