Weekend in Galveston

This past weekend Matt and I traveled down to Houston to spend the weekend with our good friends, Andrea and Tristan. They are our "vacation buddies". We have traveled with them a couple times, first on a cruise to Mexico our junior year in college, then to San Antonio last summer. We just LOVE traveling with them. They are so easy going, just like us and we really enjoy their company.

We left Friday and headed down to Houston to stay the night with them and then leave early Saturday morning for Galveston. As we were entering Houston, Matt and I both remembered that Luke (Matt's brother) and his girlfriend were in Houston! So that night, we got dressed up and went out to dinner. Luke and his girlfriend, Ashley, met us at a cute little pizza place that was amazing. We had a great time, but somehow forgot to take pictures! :(

The next morning, we headed down to Galveston. It was only a 30 minute drive, and it was so sunny! We quickly checked in to our hotel and headed to the beach. The beach was nice, but I couldnt see my feet, so I was NOT about to hang out in the water. Haha! So, we headed to the hotel pool! They had really good pina coladas, and we had a great time!!

That night, we went to eat at the Fisherman's Warf. Many people had told us to go there and the hotel recommended it. It was pretty good, they had great clam chowder. We got to sit by the water, so that was nice :)

Sunday morning, we went to the beach one more time and then made our way to back to Houston. We stayed the night with them Sunday night and left Monday morning. It was so nice to "get away" and spend time with our friends! :)
