A Crazy Day at Galveston.

Last week my sister and my parents were going to stay a few night in Galveston so Jeremy and I decided to go and spend the day shopping and swimming at the beach. When we got to the Strand Jeremy and I started getting everyone out of the car, as I pulled out the stroller Jeremy told me that we did not need a stroller. In my mind I was like...what! are you crazy going shopping with 3 kids and not having one of them tied down. But I was trying to be a submissive wife and go with it but inside I was going crazy. First we started the day out with ice cream, it was 10am but we were hungry. After we ate ice cream we heading over to my favorite store, Gracie's. As we entered the store, all I could think about was, I wish I had my stroller....Emily wanted to touch everything. She is just at that age and I wanted to shopping. I could spend 30 minutes in that little store but we were in and out in about 5 minutes. We usually go in 10 stores but we were done and tired. I felt like I had been shopping for 5 hours. Then we met up with my parents at Hotel Galvez and then off to Rainforest Cafe.

Ice Cream at La Kings is our favorite

After we went to lunch everyone we swimming at the beach. I had to go to the hotel room and feed Cody and by the time I finished they were all done swimming because of the rain. About the time everyone got back to the hotel, at cleared up and we went swimming at the pool.

When we were at the pool I decide to go back to the car and get my camera. When I got back to the car I looked inside and my stroller was missing. My first thought was my camera was on my stroller and now it is not in the car. A few hours earlier Jeremy had taken the girls back to the car and went to the restaurant as I waited for my parents at the hotel. It turns out that after Jeremy loaded the car he drove off and left my stroller on the grass next to the hotel on a main road. I was sick to my stomach, so I went straight up to the hotel to see if my stroller was found. It was there, someone had turned it in, I was shocked but my camera was not there. I started to cry, I know it sounds silly but I love taking pictures and waited a long time to get my nice camera. I knew I would not be able to get another one like it. The rest of the time that we were there, I was so sad and upset with Jeremy. I know he did not mean it but I was still really upset. We were all praying for a miracle that someone would turn it in. Well, that evening as Jeremy and I were loading up the car my nephews ran up and said that they might have my camera. It was there, the security officer had locked it up. I was so happy. Thank you Jesus for answered prayers.
