Saturday in Savannah

Last Saturday with Mom and Dad we had a great time. I can't believe that was a week ago. This week really flew by.

Anyway, we started the day at a wildlife center, which was really neat. It was kind of like a zoo, but the animals were more in their natural habitat. Most of the really cool animals we didn't see, because they were hiding. It was lots of fun though, and a good Saturday activity.

(The boys having their picture taken sitting in a bald eagles nest. The sign said this is the actual size that their nests get, not the actual size of the eggs though.)

(Jacob standing in front of a lake that is completley covered with green pollen. It was actually pretty cool, there was a landing you could feed the fish and turtles from and they would pop their heads up out of the pollen to get their food.)

After that we headed on to a crowded Tybee Island to spend some time at the beach. It is a really neat place to go, but they have no place to park, so you drive around for the first hour of your day. But once we found a spot to park we had a great time at the beach and the boys were loving it. Even with the crowds we still enjoyed it.

After the beach we went to a famous place to eat on Tybee Island called the Crab Shack. Rachel Ray even went there when she used to do her show were she would go to different cities and try one of their best restaurants. We ordered what people in the south call the "low-country boil". It was a huge platter of all kinds of seafood, plus some sausage, corn and red potatoes. It was pretty good, but not my favorite seafood. But it was perfect for Mom and Dad's Georgia experience. They have a trash can right in the middle of the table for you to throw all your shells in and a big thing of paper towels to keep yourself clean. They even have a sink in the dining area for you to wash up afterwards. Seafood can be pretty messy.

So fun. I think I need a trip to the south. All that talk of seafood has peeked my interest. But you can keep the mussels. We are SO excited for you guys to get here.

I especially like the picture of the full moon. Usually Teresa makes fun of any pictures of full moons that I take.
