Warning: Picture Overload Ahead!
Last week we all loaded up and headed to one of my very favorite places - Tybee Island, GA!!
My parents bought a timeshare on the Island the year that I was born and we've been going there ever since. It's a tradition that I definitely want to keep up with my own kids, and have been fortunate to be able to so far! This was BuddyRoe's first trip, but BBug has been there all four of her summers so far!
One of our favorite parts of the Island is that it isn't overly commercial, it's still pretty laid back and low key.
An added benefit to this year's trip was that we got to enjoy it with NahNah, PopPop, Grandma (my grandmother), Uncle J, Boogie, Aunt B, and Aunt B's parents (Mimi & Papa). Don't worry, we didn't all share one condo - we had two (that were two bedrooms each).
While we were there we enjoyed swimming in the pool - there were over 2,700 jellyfish stings reported the first weekend so we pretty much stayed out of the ocean. BBug continued to work on her swimming. She's got all the motions down she just has to get the confidence to try it without her floaties. She and Boogie especially enjoyed playing "1-2-3 Jump!"
We also played in the sand and built sand castles with NahNah. Well, BBug built the sand castles while BuddyRoe ate the sand.
One of the evenings we all met up for a sunset dolphin cruise. Daddy and BuddyRoe stayed behind since it would have been way past BuddyRoe's bedtime when we returned.
Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins and the sky was overcast so the sunset wasn't the best, but we sure did enjoy the boat ride and the company anyway!
We spent a little bit of time out on the pier fishing with Uncle J and NahNah. The pier is one of Uncle J's favorite places to hang out when we're there - he always catches neat stuff like stingrays and sharks!
NahNah, Mommy & BBug went to the Island's little Marine Science Center one day while the boys were all napping. BBug loved the pufferfish, but wasn't so sure about the gators - don't worry she still LOVES "The Gators" though!
Walks on the beach have always been one of our favorite activities and this year was no exception. We usually met up with Boogie and her crew and shared the fun together!
Other than that - as if that wasn't enough - we just relaxed and enjoyed being silly for a while!
On the way home NahNah and PopPop followed us into Savannah where we visited Riverstreet to get some famous Salt Water Taffy and other goodies and the candy store! We even got to see how it was all made! So yummy!
