Day 6 - Baytown Fun

We spent our last day at the beach for a little while followed by a lot of swimming at the pool.  Lunch was poolside again and the girls (including me) got to enjoy one last yummy frozen drink.  Hudson had gotten pretty brave in the pool and had fun "jumping" into me. I even dunked him a few times and he didn't seem to mind one bit.   I had not intended for him to nap at the pool, but he was worn out from all his swimming so we made a make-shift bed on a pool chair under and umbrella so the girls could keep swimming.

We decided to ride the shuttle back to Baytown for our last night and I think it was the best night we had on our trip.  As soon as we arrived Robby made a beeline for the zipline.  Handley had asked to do it earlier in the week, but it was after dinner, close to bedtime for the little ones, and the line was really long.  He surprised her with a ticked to try it out before dinner and she didn't hesitate once.  After the guy got her all strapped into her harness we waved as she climbed the steps to the top.  It wasn't long before she stepped off the platform and was zipping across the water 50 feet or so in the air.  We were all clapping and cheering for her!  Then, she got to come back across and the look on her face when she climbed down the steps was pure joy.

Dinner was next, followed by exploring the rest of what Baytown had to offer.  The guys took advantage of the free beer, Justen tried out the mini-golf, and we took another ride on the carousel.

It was such a fun night and the perfect ending to our vacation.

I'm glad everything worked out with the weather for you! We are headed down there in two weeks. Your pictures make me so excited to get there. And Handley totally has that thrill seeking twinkle in her eye...her daddy's daughter for sure.
