Are you a Pelican or a Pelican't?

Clara wanted a picture by the pelican at the Seabrook Waffle Co.  Toni and the girls have seen many, if not all, of the Pelicans in Seabrook.   They have all been brightly painted by various local artists.

We have 4 days while Mom and Dad are gone.  Can we fit it all in?  Wednesday we picked up Kolaches and had a picnic breakfast at Zip-Line Park, officially called Cottonwood Park.  Longest zip-line I have seen.

Alexa (10) teaching Clara (5) to use her hoverboard.  I asked Alexa if this was a good idea.  She said "Grandma she has a helmet on."  Fortunately it ended well!

Wednesday afternoon we completed a few tasks and then headed to the Aquarium Restaurant on the Kemah Boardwalk.  The boardwalk has a carnival atmosphere and includes restaurants, rides, etc.  Spring break week and there were a LOT of people there.  We had dinner at the Aquarium Restaurant. Guess I had in my mind that we were eating under the sea.  I was wrong.  They did have a huge Aquarium in the center of the restaurant.  Lots of different fish, an eel, and a shark.  Food was nothing to write home about.

We went to the stingray tank and other ocean exhibits downstairs while we waited for our table.  The kids each got 4 shrimp to feed the adult stingrays and instructions on how to touch them.  Clara wanted nothing to do with feeding or touching them!

They each got one ride.  Pat with Alexa who chose the yellow ride behind them.

Clara and I went on the train.

Emma and Lilah road The Bullet.  

The Bullet is one of four wooden roller coasters in Texas.  It is 96 feet tall and 3,236 feet long.   

Before heading home we walked a few blocks from the Boardwalk to the Cool Cow Creamery.  The girls were right, it was really good.  They had a variety of flavors, as well as sugar-free for Pat and dairy-free for me.
All ice-creams and baked goods are made in house.

Thursday we went to an afternoon movie.  Pat and the older two saw "Unchartered," and I went with the younger two and saw "Sing 2."  Both were good.  Very few people at either.

Friday we went to the Seabrook Waffle Co. for lunch.

The few tables inside were full and the wind made it a quite chilly.  There are 4 girls huddled together under those blankets.  Several other tables had blankets too.

A trip to the library and, in case they hadn't gotten enough sugar, we stopped at Smoothie King.

When we got home we rode bikes, walked, and drove to Circle Park to work off some of that sugar!

A dinner request of stuffed french toast.  We tried an over-night recipe and I was impressed.  
Where are the Piepers now?  Houston, TX
