Quito Rymer is very famous on the island - I am looking forward to picking up one of his CD's while at Cane Garden Beach.

Do you want to try out some recipes before you go?

Or maybe decide on some spices to get on the island?

It looks like two tours are sold out already:
Oceans 7 beach break and the XBob Underwater Scooter both say no reservations available.
I switched from the Baths to this one as well. Looks like something we would all like. Was unsure about the climbing with DS-13, a brain tumor survivor. It will just be me, DS13 and DS10 and after talking about it decided to change. We get a tour, get to do some shopping, lunch, and a couple hours on the beach, and it is less expensive.

Looks like there will be a good group of 11 year old boys. My son is 11 too and will be finishing 5th grade the end of June. He's into video games, hockey, hanging out and getting a bit more independent. Getting excited now...trying to keep my second graders from checking out at school! (and their teacher too!)

We are doing the forest and beach tour. It sounds like a nice blend of hiking, scenic views and beach! Should be fun....

Our DS is 10 and finishing 4th grade... He loves swimming, video games and basketball. He is really excited about the cruise - DD (almost 16) is all over the teen thread, so he is happy there will be boys his age.

Good Morning All and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms! I remembered my mother today with a card, but forgot to sign it before I mailed it

We're off to Schlitterbahn Galveston for the day. This will be our third Mother's Day spent at the waterpark. It's a nice day and low crowds; not too many moms think waterpark for their first choice on how to spend the day. Me, give me a book and a lounge chair and I'm happy

Tonight, we're joining friends for a crawfish boil! Yum!
