A Kemah Mother's Day

I had a delightful Mother's Day. The boys gave me a gift wrapped with purple wrapping paper! Inside was a candle set with a purple candle and purple butterflies! I loved it.

We went to church with Granna and PawPaw, then had a small lunch of sandwiches. Why a quick lunch? We were trying to get to our Mother's Day destination- Kemah.

We arrived and the boys rode some rides. Luke loved the double-decker carousel.

And Caleb, poor Caleb. Kemah was super crowded and it took us a while to park. The whole time Caleb is talking about this roller coaster. He was begging me to take him on it. I was not having anything to do with it. He kept saying over and over again, "I really want to ride that roller coaster." Finally Aaron agreed to ride the roller coaster with Caleb. While they were in line to purchase tickets, Hector decided to ride too. It was not a fun experience for any of the Garza guys. Caleb came off the roller coaster in tears, Aaron said it was rough, and Hector said it was the last roller coaster he would ever ride in his life. Apparently, like wooden roller coasters do, it beat them up. All three of them thought the roller coaster would never end.

While all of this was going on, Ann put our name in at Saltgrass. The wait time was going to be an hour and forty five minutes. Well after the roller coaster our excitement at being at Kemah started to dissipate. It started getting really hot under the Texas sun. We found a place to sit in the shade, and we were questioning the wisdom of coming to Kemah. Aaron decided to take the boys on the train ride, while the rest of us went to Saltgrass to wait out our time. We got to Saltgrass after an hour of our wait time had gone by. As soon as we walked in they called us in and we got to sit right by a window. We decided it was a God thing that we got there at exactly the right time.

We had a delicious meal and enjoyed the view. It was a great Mother's Day!
