Father's Day Weekend

 Happy Father's Day!  It's always a hoot to get together with my family!
I love them all so much!

 This is my Mom, Dad, and Sister with me.  It's so good to be together.

 So glad I got to spend time with my Dad on Father's Day this year.

 Me and my sister went shopping and ended up picking two of the same outfits!  Ha!

My 14 year old neice gave me a makeover. 

 Kevin was not able to be with his children on Father's day this year but was able to talk to each one.  I am so blessed that he is the earthly father of our children.  He is such a great Dad to Zach, Justin, and Hannah!  We are both privileged to be called Mom and Dad by these three!

Week at the beach part 2

 Zach and Megan left in the morning so Kevin and I went bike riding around the island.  We had lunch down near the lighthouse. It was a lot of fun!




 My Mom and Dad got there in the afternoon.  She made me a cake and then drove with it 7 hours so we could enjoy it on my birthday!  That's a great Mom!

 It was chocolate with chocolate mousse and rasberries between the layers.
It was delicious!

 I even got presents!


We went to Savanah one day and took the trolley to tour around.

Savanah is a beautiful place.


 We had dinner at The Olde Pink House.  It was delicious!

 We were so full that we did not want any dessert.  The waiter brought this to me for my birthday.  Cool whip, rasberries, and choc. on a plate.  Yum!

 Me and my Dad outside the restaurant.

We went to Leopold's Ice Cream Shop.   It was founded in 1919 by 3 brothers from Greece. The son to one of these brothers is now the owner of it. His name is Stratton Leopold.

 It was a long line but it went quick.
It was very good!

 Today, Stratton Leopold is an active member of the Hollywood motion picture community, serving as Producer to many films.  He has posters up in the ice cream shop from the movies he produced.

My Mom and Dad
We enjoyed walking out on the pier and on the beach.

 We enjoyed eating at the Crab Shack with them too! 
Thanks Mom and Dad for coming so far to spend time with us!

We love the Beach!

 This past week we had the blessing of going to Tybee Island in Georgia.  We had never been there before but quickly fell in love with this little island.  The whole island is only 5 miles long. Some friends of ours own a house and graciously allowed us to stay there.  Thank you friends!!!
Zach and Megan were with us the first part of the week and then my mom and dad came the second part of the week.  This post is on the first part of the week and I'll do another post on the last part of it.

 Zach loves him some sunscreen!

 There was a beautiful lighthouse on the island.

 We would go out on the beach in the mornings and have lunch out there and then head in and get ready and go to Savanah.  We walked around like tourists and enjoyed some good meals in Savanah.

 This was a cool candy shop.  Look at all that candy on the wall!
We didn't buy any of it!  Can you believe it?

 They made taffy and then it went on this conveyer belt and dropped in to the slots.

 We were told we had to eat at Vinnie Van Go Go's. 

 It was really good pizza!

Megan took some pics of us at the beach.

 We celebrated Zach's birthday while we were together too.

 Same little face he made when he was little

 Me and my 25 Year old Son!  Where have the years gone?

 We decided to go to the Melting Pot one night since we had never been before.  Zach and Megan had gone on their honeymoon and said it was really good.  
We started with a cheese fondue.

 Then we had meat, shrimp, pork, and vegetable as fondue.  Then lastly, we had a desert fondue of choc. turtle something.  It was so good!!  There wasn't any choc left when we finished!

 We loved eating seafood too!  The Crab Shack was one of our favorites.

 They had aligators at the Crab Shack too.

 Tybee Island is a great place to ride bikes.  We enjoyed riding around the town and on the beach while we were there.

 We really enjoyed spending this time with Zach and Megan!  They are such a cute married couple.

You know I loved this!
