When Cason finished on Saturday, we took Madeleine out to my parents' (where she stayed for 8 nights - what a gift, and they are up for sainthood!) and we got back to to Houston just in time to enjoy a dinner out at El Ranchero, our favorite Mexican neighborhood spot. We felt so FREE after being done with Cason's test - we couldn't believe it! Cason and I still had to pack (!) but NO WORRIES. We had a great time with our visiting family that night, and got ready to get down to Galveston the next morning.
After a yummy kolache breakfast (thanks for stopping in West, Bristers!) we loaded up the Tahoe to get down to Galveston. We were so excited to get on the boat and get the vacation started. Thanks to Trish's frequent cruising, we had quite a few perks on this cruise, including boarding privileges. :)
After our swims we headed into Caye Caulker for lunch. We had some yummy local food, and the view was an old cemetery with views of the beach and water. So, so lovely.
