We are back from our vacation to Savannah, Georgia and Tybee Island. Jason and I have always wanted to go, so to say we were super excited about this trip is an understatement. We arrived after 3 pm and got checked in to our hotel. Then, we headed down to the Riverwalk to look around and enjoyed some awesome Greek food at the Olympia Cafe. We were all pretty tired so, after a quick trip to Wal-Mart, we headed back to the hotel to let the kids swim. We got up and had breakfast Tuesday morning and headed to Tybee Island, which looked like a little piece of paradise on Earth. Our first stop was to see the lighthouse.
After a quick lunch at Arby's, we headed for the beach. It was absolutely beautiful. I was so glad the entrance allowed Jason to go up to the sand, so we could all sit together.
Here we are on the beach...
I couldn't resist a pic of Carley and Gavin on the driftwood. This is Gavin's "I'm hot and ready to get under the air conditioning" face.
They enjoyed running from the waves. You could hear their squeals all the way up the beach. They were having so much fun! I love this photo of Carley!! When she feels, she feels all over and you can tell how happy she is in this picture!
Austin and Jason decided to compare their muscles!! I think Jason has him beat. Don't you?
Here's GMAN walking from the water to go sit on his towel.
After our beach trip, we headed back to the hotel. Cindy kept the kids for us, so Jason and I went to eat at Uncle Bubba's. To say it was great food would be an understatement. The back area of the restaurant was by the water. It was so pretty back there. I could've sat there the rest of the night. We decided to head to downtown Savannah on Wednesday. Carley was so excited to see the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace and the Girl Scout Headquarters, where Mrs. Low lived the remainder of her life. Unfortunately, it was a holiday and both houses were closed. Carley was pretty upset but I told her that would give us an excuse to come back sometime. This is Carley and Gavin in front of the Birthplace
and in front of the Andrew Low house where the Girl Scout Headquarters are located.
We then headed to Forsyth Park to see the fountain. It was absolutely beautiful, with the moss trees hanging over the walk leading to the biggest fountain I had ever seen in my life. Here we are in front of the fountain:
After the park, we headed down to the Riverwalk. We walked up and down the street and took in all the shops and restaurants. We had lunch at Mr. Huey's. There was a gentleman playing sax under the over pass. I could've swore it was the radio playing over the loud speaker, but there he was in the flesh playing the most beautiful sax music. He stopped to play the Umpa Lumpa song from Willy Wonka, when Gavin walked by. Gavin just smiled!! It's a huge accomplishment to get Gavin to smile when he's hot and tired!! This is the bridge, going into South Carolina. Jason found the end of it so we could cross it, cause that's just what we do!:) Jason is known for taking roads (or bridges) just to see where they go. The view of Savannah from the bridge was well worth it.
These are riverboats docked right next to the Riverwalk. On our next trip, we are going to take one of the cruises. Can you tell I already have our next trip planned out?
There is so much more I could share but you'd be here the rest of the night, so I won't keep you. If you made it this far, thanks for sticking with me to hear about our vacation. I know, without a doubt, that we will return to Savannah again. It is one of my favorite vacation spots by far. Thanks for stopping by!! I'll see you tomorrow with a post on what I've been creating this week!! Until then...
