Cooper's first vacay!

We left for Savannah on Friday and we had an awesome time! It was the first trip to Savannah for all 3 of us and we were not disappointed! I've wanted to desperately visit this town since watching Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil in the late 90's! Crazy enough I've been on a few international trips before going to Savannah which is only 3 1/2 hours away from my home! Cooper is an awesome road-trip companion! We stopped for diaper changes and some leg stretches otherwise he handled himself like a pro!

On Friday night, my hubby and I went to a ghost tour...don't worry, we left Cooper with some friends that were in Savannah for the night! He's far too young for ghost tours ;) This was actually the first time that we've been on a date since Cooper came home from the hospital! I have to say that it was very nice to hold my hubby's hand as we walked down the street because normally one of us is either holding Coop or pushing a stroller! You certainly miss the small things when you get busy with baby!

On Saturday, we went to Bonaventure Cemetery (It took me forever to find Conrad Aiken's plot!), Fort Pulaski, Tybee Island and then we finished the day with an awesome dinner along the riverside and then a stroll around Forsyth Park!

I was sad to leave such a beautiful and historically significant town...but, now we're in love and are planning another trip for October!

What a cheerful disposition because this is at 5:30 AM on our way out the door to start driving!

Diaper change #1 and let's get outta our p.j.s :)

Cooper taking a nap in The Lady and Sons (Paula Deen). Obviously, he was just as impressed as mommy was!

Mommy and Cooper at Tybee Island! (Yes, I am wearing my glasses to the beach because I can't see crap without them!)

Us at the fountain in Forsyth Park!

  1. Oh, it looks like you guys had such a great time. I was just thinking about Lady and Sons last night when my mom brought over KFC (so NOT the same!!! LOL!!!).
