this past weekend was so much fun.
j had a four day weekend for veteran's day…and the girls had friday off from school. friday evening we picked BB (my mom)up from the airport. to say the girls were excited would be a MASSIVE understatement. 🙂
we took her to b matthews for dinner. b matthews is on bay street (one street up from river street) and is a sweet little restaurant. there was a live jazz band and just a great,energetic vibe in that part of town.
saturday we headed down to city market. city market is the more touristy part of town (think paula deen's restaurant, cobblestone streets,street bands,and horse drawn carriages). my mom had never been in that part of savannah and we really wanted her to experience it!
we sat in ellis square and watched the girls watch the fountains and dance. i mean really…wouldn't it be awesome to be 3 and 5 and dance your heart out regardless of who is watching?
the big girls have wanted to go on a horse drawn carriage tour of savannah since we've lived here, and my mom decided to take them on one. this photo makes me laugh so hard i cry every single time i look at it. HAHAHAAAAAAA
you may be shocked to know that we didn't think taking two one year olds on a horse drawn tour sounded fun. so while BB toured with the bigs, we hit up the telfair art fair with the littles.
there were white tents set up everywhere, feauturing work of local artists (jewelry,photography,paintings). i think the babies enjoyed their first cultural outing. hehe!
saturday night j and i had a DATE NIGHT!!! yes, you heard me correctly. DATE NIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!! okay, sorry…i got a little carried away. but seriously…so blessed to have a mom who loves my girls so much and encourages us to go out.
we ate at ele, a thai fusion restaurant i've been wanting to try for months. cross one more off of my savannah bucket list.
sunday we went to church,walked down habersham a bit (i'd like to live here please,thankyouverymuch).
and then had brunch at firefly cafe. i have no fabulous food photos or photos of the restaurant because….
i was outside. the entire time. with these rascals.
turns out that *they* were NOT in the mood for a leisurely brunch. shocking, no? 😉
sunday night j and i went to see moneyball. TWO DATES IN A ROW!!! score! 🙂 for the record, moneyball was fabulous.
and then monday i wrapped up a glorious long weekend by meeting up with my favorite ladies in the world for a baby shower (back at b. matthews).
i have to tell you that these ranger wives are the most amazing women in the world. strong, capable, funny,beautiful, and smart women and mothers. i adore them.
have a beautiful wednesday!
