    A time for sand.

    They will remember this.

    The wethergirls have been begging to go back to Galveston for months. Seeing as how Misseswether and I were married on a beach and this weekend was our thirteenth wedding anniversary we decided it would be a good time to go back to the beach, play in the sand and get some wonderful seafood. However, Misseswether managed to give herself a bad sunburn while being outside at a park all Friday for a homeschooling event, so she ended up staying at home while me, Mambowether and Miniwether hit the beach.

    According to my folks up in Minnesota, they just received another 15 or more inches of snow. Meanwhile we're at the beach. The Gulf waters were still pretty chilly but it was warm enough to run around in swimsuits. A heavy fog covered the beach reducing the visibility down to very little. Add to the fact that we pretty much had the beach to ourselves made this both awesome and a little spooky...

    The girls didn't mind the fog or the spooky, they just wanted to collect shells, dig holes, run around, make sand castles and eat Girl Scout cookies.

    The girls didn't find many really nice shells so I bought them each a big pretty one at a gift shop. They are both sleeping with them so as to keep this day close. It was a very good day.

    Misseswether also had a very good day. She watched the BBC adaption of North and South all the way through...several times.

    Adventure! Excitement! Memories!

    It looks like some quality Daddy-Daughters Time.
