A Rainy Memorial Day

We took a quick trip to Savannah for Memorial Day weekend and, though we were stuck in our hotel room most of Sunday because of Tropical Storm Beryl, we had a great time.

We met up with Joe’s family and other members of his mom’s family for her aunt’s 80th birthday party. It was a lot of fun hanging out with everyone and staying in the same hotel.

On, the way, we stopped at Chick-fil-A’s Dwarf House for breakfast. Lucy was a little unsure about the tiny door at first, but then she really seemed to like it.



We arrived Saturday afternoon and hit the pool for a little bit before getting ready for dinner. I wish I had gotten pictures or videos of the girls in the water. Rivka was didn’t want her face getting wet at all, while Lucy was jumping in the 4-foot section not even caring if anyone was there to catch her. We’d let her jump into the water so she went completely under and then would pull her up. And, she would ask for more. I know, you’re surprised.

That night, dinner was at a seafood place. The food was OK, but the company was great. The girls played out on the deck a bit, and we saw an alligator! That was pretty neat.





The girls even got to feed the alligator! The restaurant had dispensers of food for it, and apparently, that’s how it can live peacefully with all the turtles in the water.



Seriously, how cute are these girls together??

Sunday was a pretty lazy morning for us since we didn’t have time to do much. We got a little bit of peace and quiet when Grandma and Grandpa took the girls to Krispy Kreme.

After we all got ready, we headed to visit a friend of Joe’s grandmother’s, and then we all went over to another restaurant for Aunt Francine’s birthday lunch. Her boys did a fabulous job setting up for it, and there were fun M&Ms with Francine’s picture on them for favors!

Nana (Joe’s grandma) brought the girls some Sesame Street color-on books, so that helped pacify them during the 1.5 hour wait between when we arrived and when they got their food.



After we all finally ate, it was time for cake, the part that Lucy had been waiting for all night. The cakes were from a bakery here in Atlanta and ohmygosh they were SO GOOD!



And, we got some cute family pics as well!




After lunch and a nap, Joe and his mom headed out for pizza and provisions in preparation for Tropical Storm Beryl. It was super windy all day, and the wind continued picking up as the day went on, and around 11 p.m. the rain hit. Unfortunately, it only lasted about 30 minutes. We were hoping for more of a rain storm.

It was a quick but fun trip. We want to go back next year and have time to really take Lucy around the city.

  1. Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Thank you!

    My feelings on teams are mwiolelng. I used to be dead set against them for many of the reasons that John Bell has stated above. In effect I saw them as a con effectively enslaving late joiners to build the team leader’s downline.Two programs the 10K team and the L Team have made me reconsider my position.the 10K team effectively uses the model that Catherine describes while the L Team addresses the reward for effort concept that John recognized as a big detracting feature on most team plans.Mike Bretts’ points about teams are well made and their is a psychology in a team structure that makes it very attractive to people struggling to make a buck online.Recently I asked the question somewhere how does the newbie get started how do they present a knowledgeable authoritative voice when in effect they know nothing.Programs like Affiliate Funnel are awesome teachers of basic online marketing skills, but require thought work and effort.A team promising x number of guaranteed sign ups provides the illusion of an easy way to the newbie (I really hate that word) when in reality what they are doing is entrapping them into doing the hard yards and never giving them the freedom to really employ the skills required to set themselves up as independent. In effect a team marketing model in its traditional form (this does not apply to the 2 I mentioned) is offering a work for wages type business model.Are thewages worth it?That’s up to the individual I guess
