Houston - Day 3

For our final day, we planned to head to the Kemah Boardwalk.  We haven't been there yet and it is full of rides, restaurants and games for kids to play - but, it was still raining... 

The kids wanted to buy an accessory for their Build a Bear friends, so we headed to another mall.  This mall had a huge arcade area with mini golf, games, rides and laser tag.  Turns out this mall did NOT have a Build a Bear.  Why does it always work like that?

Anyhoo, enjoy the pictures from our last day!

Even though this was in the middle of an arcade, it was glow in the dark mini golf.  So my pictures are a little - dark.  This is the first time the kids have played mini golf!  How fun!  Chad gave Ella a quick lesson.

Clearly the lessons didn't work as she is holding her club backwards :)

She's got it now!

Caleb was showing off with his trick...

Wonder where Caleb gets that from?  (Look to the right.)

Nice shot, Olivia!

Chad got a hole-in-one!

So did Caleb!

Even Olivia was happy for them!

Ella became quite the serious golfer.  She would get down low and line up her ball just so.

After mini golf, the girls rode this crazy ride!

It actually went really fast and they loved it!

And finally, a friendly game of laser tag.  The family that shoots together, stays together.  Or something like that.

After playing, we ate one last time at Rainforest Cafe and headed home. Ella fell asleep and slept the entire way home. When I woke her up in our driveway, she looked around and started to cry. She asked to go back so she could live in the hotel for a few more days...

I hate that the kids are growing up. I really do. I wish I could rewind and slow things down. But, trips like this are now easy, almost (I said almost) stress free because the kids are more independent and are able to truly enjoy things.

Wish I could say the same for homework time.
