Magnolia Gardens

Magnolia Gardens is a very famous part of Houston's history. I read that Elvis played there in his early days. Awesome right? Anyway, Magnolia Gardens is on the San Jacinto River and it's a great place to take your kids.  This was the 2nd time we visited and the first time we went was even more fun!

A bit of history:
Michele and I had been friends for a while but our men hadn't met yet. We figured an outing at a river would be the perfect setting for them to meet.  And it was!! We had a blast and we vowed to come back. Well that was like 8 years ago and we barely went back a few weeks ago.  We need to get out more.

Anyway, Melina and Sofia LOVED it!!  We got a perfect spot where there was plenty of sand for the girls to play and the river was not far at all. It was far enough to where we weren't worried our kids would float off into the water and it was close enough that it wasn't a mile away either.

We took hamburgers and hotdogs to grill and they were yummy! Then a gust of wind came and knocked all of the food we cooked on the ground.  I'm not lying. Thankfully we had already eaten but STILL!!!!  You know fat people like seconds! :)

We stayed for 4 hours or so and we were pooped. We left and then had Dairy Queen before heading home.  It was a great day spent with my favorite people.  Here are some pictures from our fun outing.

She was timid at first but once she got used to it, she had a blast!
Daddy trying to teach Sofia how to swim. Newsflash: He can't swim!

I love close-ups of her!
