Home to: Paula, Flannery, and Bitch Moss

We were on Tybee Island, just outside of Savannah, Georgia last week. I don't recall ever being on an island before, and it was pretty cool to travel to it. We drove down roads that had water on either side of it to get out to Tybee. The interesting thing was that the water level changed depending on the tide. Jesse said that Tybee Island is the most susceptible (and maybe unprepared as well, I can't always remember when he starts talking storm surge) areas in the nation if a hurricane were to hit. There's really only one road off and on the island, and if it floods....well, there's no getting off.

And that's where we hung out last week.

Outside our place there was a lighthouse that Hadley and my dad climbed up. Hadley climbed 180 stairs to the top all by herself. She really liked the lighthouse. When we were walking around throughout the week, and she'd see the lighthouse, she'd say, "There's the lighthouse! That means we're almost home!"

My dad and Jesse took the girls to a little zoo one day and now Hadley is all about buffaloes. She said, "Mama, those buffaloes are ENORMOUS!" when she came back from the zoo.

I don't know if it's just me, but that cow looks crazy.

And here's Miss Cool.

We also found a park nearby to hang out at for a bit.

And we celebrated my dad's birthday with delicious jambalaya that my mom made. I'm pretty sure she could give ol' Paula Deen a run for her money.

Hadley's drinking apple juice in the pictures below in case anyone was concerned.

Here's a shot of our family:
And one of where we stayed:
