Happy Monday friends! It was a jam packed weekend over here … holy moly! This week is even crazier. Bring on the crazy 😉
Friday night my step-sister Kelsey got here from Fort Benning, GA. Her husband was out in the field (yes, we both married Army) and couldn’t join her but I was super glad she came! We met Heather and D for Mexican food and it was delish! We hurried home to get a good night sleep because we had BIG plans Saturday!
Bright and early Saturday morning we loaded up the car and hit the road to Tybee Island.
Where we met this girl and her hubs:
The water was super warm and the weather HOT. Seriously, what was with the insane heat wave this weekend?! Chris and I said we were willing to give up the dry heat for humidity but not when it combines with triple digit temps. The real feel Saturday was 115! Nuts. Needless to say it was the PERFECT day to spend in the water. Plus I love any excuse to hang out with Victoria 😉
After enjoying a few adult beverages and just having a great time hanging out it was time to get some lunch. We ended up walking up to the pier and getting take-out from Fannie’s.
Blackened Mahi Mahi tacos. Seriously these were some of the BEST fish tacos I have ever had. Kelsey and Victoria got them also and we all agreed. If you are on Tybee you really need to try them! AND lunch wouldn’t be complete without some Wet Willie’s 😉
Around 3PM we packed up and headed home to regroup. Unfortunately for us, Emmie decided to have a massive accident on the way home leading to a bath for her and a hosing of her car seat. Fun times in parenting 😉 After we all cleaned up we headed up to J.F. Gregory park for the Richmond Hill 4th of July celebration!
It was SO hot. We found an area in the shade to set up shop but we were all dying. Luckily snow cones were only $2 a pop.
Emmie seriously was a rock star once again. She didn’t let the heat phase her at all! She was smiles and sunshine the whole night 🙂
One of the best things about fairs and celebrations is the yummy food. I couldn’t pass at getting a waffle on a stick … and I am glad I got it! Chris and I both agreed it was quite tasty 🙂
We had so much fun spending time with friends and family. I can’t wait for Heather and D to OFFICIALLY move here this week. I am also stoked to have met Alex and her girls recently. I can see the next couple years in Georgia being some of our best 🙂 The best way to end a perfect day?
Yesterday we took Kelsey to our favorite local breakfast joint and she got on the road home. Chris and I spent the rest of the day cleaning, doing laundry, and watching the Olympic trials. Round 2 of company comes on Wednesday to celebrate the 4th with us! We will be heading back to the beach 😉 Hope your week gets off to a great start!
How was your weekend?
