Houston Fun with Jacob

Isaac's brother Jacob drove home with us from Ohio and stayed for about 8 days.  We love when Jacob visits, and the puppies are always in Heaven with Uncle Jacob in the house.  Half the fun is exploring our city as Jacob finds fun things he'd like to do.

On the Friday before New Year's, we had a warm day, so we headed to Galveston.  This isn't a new thing for us, but it's a treat to be on the beach, mostly to watch the excitement of Bailey and Aggie Belle.  Bailey acts like a pup each time his feet hit the sand, which always warms this Mommy's heart.  It was a warm, sunny day, but the water was about 56 from the cold snap we'd had over Christmas.  Tepid water didn't stop Aggie Belle from diving head first into the surf to hunt down her ball.  Crazy!

New Year's Eve found us at the zoo for elephant bath time, the sea lion show, and a date with the giraffes.  It was a cooler day, but that just meant the animals were extra playful.

My last day off was Monday, so we decided to visit the Downtown Aquarium since none of us had ever been there.  We had some coupons, so it wasn't expensive, and our pass allowed us to go to through the aquarium as many times as we wanted as well as ride the ferris wheel, train, and carousel. The aquarium is small but incredibly well done.  Each exhibit has the utmost in detail.The 4 tigers there are beautiful.  We enjoyed watching their training demonstration.  They are so incredibly smart!  We saw Nero.
