Our Galveston 4th of July plans were abruptly cancelled so we had to act quick and come up with plans to entertain two hot whiny kids after church Sunday afternoon. We came home and started surfing the web for nearby attractions... We knew we wouldn't be able to book a hotel in Galveston due to the masses of people ascending on the island. So... we looked North. We'll never go back to La Tour "ghetto" in Conroe so we kept searching. We came across The Woodlands Resort, booked it, packed up two kids and headed out at 3:00 in the afternoon. We arrived, sun protected the littles and made our way to the pool! We knew if we forgot something, there was a target nearby. (and yes we did have to go... diapers... kinda need those) We have a new favorite resort! We stayed in a little bungalow on the pond and it felt like we were at camp. WONDERFUL! The grounds were well maintained and the room was very clean. I can't wait to go back. It's a great place to get away and it's only an hour away from home. We had a great 4th of July minus the fireworks... which suits me just fine. I can take them or leave them.
Now to the corn... Indiana has the best sweet corn in all the world (no exaggeration)My family LOVES sweet corn... When it's sweet corn season sometimes my grandfather makes it a meal... he can put away the corn. REALLY. When I'm there I can't get enough of it. We smother it in butter and salt and grind away sometimes a dozen or so ears... (also no exaggeration). I was very disappointed that my spouse did not appreciate the sweet corn. How could anyone, especially someone I married, not get Indiana sweet corn. I was truly a little offended and consider this a character flaw. Then, my sweet Hoot comes along and I just know he will get the corn gene from the Trum family... He did not. So every summer, I gnaw away at this fine delicacy alone. The butter runs down my face and it's true gluttony. Gluttony is not nearly as fun alone as it is with a partner... Today, I met my partner. We stopped for bbq on the way home from the Woodlands and I ordered an ear of corn... lets just say, I did not have the opportunity to enjoy it because The Doll beat me to it. Look at Papa... I have a new partner! We won't make our Indiana trip during the season so Great Grandma and Granna will need to start packing it away for us!
Pure Joy... Were having watermellon for dinner!
4th of July photos to come!
