*repost from last year * Last month I took the kids to Mardi Gras Galveston. They have a free parade that is as family friendly as possible… and is a lot of fun along the sea wall.
This time of year it is hard to get away on a Saturday, especially with everyone as sports are just starting (here in the south!) and someone always has practice.
In fact, Paul had practice and so the kids and I went by ourselves. I packed some lunch and drinks. We grabbed blankies and the dog, and headed down. Galveston is about an hour and a half from us.
The kids had a BLAST! It is so fun to watch the big kids teach the little ones to yell for beads. They are all shy at first, but then it all starts coming back, and they really yell!
The thing is that the entire 4-5 hours we spent together really cost me nothing but gas. But the memories for the kids last forever and even longer then some of the pricey stuff there is to do with kids.
Don’t forget that gas money is some of the BEST money ever spent!
