On our way to South Texas, we stopped in Amarillo and spent some time with B's mom, step Dad and the boys' Uncle Newt.  It was a super nice visit, and on our last night there, my mother in law shared her childhood pics from beach days in Galveston, TX .   It was so much fun and a delightful way to end our visit.
 I just love pictures of yesteryear, so beautiful and they capture such pureness and in this case I feel they capture a bit of Americana. 
 This is my mother in law Knoxie.  Wasn't she a doll?
Some of my fondest memories are picnics in Santa Monica beach with my family and this picture evoked those memories for me.

I think this is my mother in law's Grandma and I just love her nautical striped dress.  Not to mention how she is in command of the situation at hand.  By the looks of that finger, someone was being redirected!
Hope you enjoyed these pictures down memory lane as much as I did.
What are some of your first beach memories?
