Tybee Island, GA

My second family was having a small family get together in Tybee Island, GA. I jumped at the chance to get to go and help out with the little kids. Here's my week in pictures:
July 7th- Hannah, Mom, and I left bright and early (around 8) to head to Tybee Island. Hannah drove until Birmingham, then I took over and drove the rest of the way. It was quite comical. Mom makes me laugh so hard. It was a very easy drive. When we arrived, it was so good to see everyone again. We unloaded and chilled for a little while. We went to dinner at The Crab Shack. It was really great food. I was able to eat a little bit of it all. After dropping everyone at the house, four of us went to Kroger to get a few things for the week.

July 8th- After waking up earlier than I thought I would, it was beach time! It was practically empty. No one was nearby. Almost like having the beach to ourselves. It was pretty great. Hello water, sand, sunshine, and a breeze. Hannah and I stayed at the beach while everyone else went in for lunch. We came back, ate lunch, and took naps. Naptime at the beach is always delightful. We hung out at home. Tony made hamburgers for supper. We took a sunset walk at the beach. We came back to play a game called Headbandz. It was a lot of fun. I'm going to have to buy one now.

July 9th- Another early morning. I took my protein drink outside to simply sit in the morning air. We headed back to the beach. After lunch, us girls went and got pedicures/manicures. Then Hannah, Hadleigh, and I did a little sight seeing. It was good to get out and about a little bit. For supper, they ordered pizza. I heard it was really good. After supper, we took a walk around the area. You know, run off some energy of some certain four little girls. We waited up for Ken, Amanda, and Hollie to arrive. I was so HAPPY to see them!

July 10th- Amanda and I got up extremely EARLY and headed to the beach ALONE! Loved getting there early and having that time to talk with her. Everyone else joined us. After lunch Hannah, Hollie, and I did some exploring. We went to the pier and around the island. We also made a trip to Walmart and Sonic- typical us. Tony and Lee made sushi at the house. It was so delicious. That evening, everyone expect the little girls, Mom, and I went to a ghost tour in Savannah. The girls and I walked to a park to play before baths and bedtime. When the younger ones were down, Hadleigh and I watched a movie. It was a perfect night.

July 11th- Another gorgeous morning on the beach. We had fun soaking up the rays, playing in the sand, and riding the waves. We went in for lunch and naps. While the girls napped, some of us came back to the beach. We had dinner out at The Crab Shack again. Delicious. We played Phase 10 for a while that evening.

July 12- Hollie, 3 of the little girls, and I hit the beach again. Some people went out that morning and the guys left at lunch to go deep sea fishing. After naps, the girls and I played in the house. We cooked there for supper. Cooked fish the guys caught. Had some steaks, chicken, and gumbo as well. It was a nice evening at the house.

July 13- We got up early to take family pictures on the beach. It went really well, even though it rained some while we were out there. Hannah, Hollie, Hadleigh, Amanda, Ken, and I went to see the lighthouse on Tybee Island. We dropped Amanda and Hannah off at the house and went to do some more sight seeing. We ate at a local place for dinner. We went to the pier to have icecream afterwards. Sarah, Hannah, and I went to a night tour in Savannah. Our guide was hilarious!! It was a fun last day.

July 14- We got up and loaded vehicles early. We were on the road by 9. Hannah, Hollie, and I rode together on the way back. We stopped in ATL to eat. We were ready to be home. It was fun having that time with them. Love them girls so much!
not really sure what on earth is going on

happy to not be driving anymore
