Meme's new house

A month after Hattie was born, we took a family trip to Savannah, GA to my mom's house, which Griffin cleverly named, "Meme's New House".  We had tentatively planned the trip long before, but didn't book anything because we wanted to leave it open in case life with Hattie wasn't ideal to travel. 
 
But, she was great, sleeping like a champ, eating like a champ, so we decided to go before Griff turned two (and therefore only had to buy two tickets and the kiddos would have lapseats). 
 
Since Nate was so busy with work, I actually left early with my mom (so she was the lucky one to get Griff on her lap:).  She was so well prepared it was no big deal.  After many hours of travel, we were finally in Georgia!
 
The first two days were a little rainy.  But since we were used to cold and snow, we were still able to get outside.
First we went to the Marina.  Griff loves boats so it was perfect.  Though here I think he's looking at a bird or an airplane or something.
I was hanging with Hattie in the gazebo and Meme walked with Griff on the docks.  How cute is this picture?!?

Even though it was raining, it was still beautiful and so refreshing to be outside.


Hattie spent a lot of time hanging and starting to be a little more awake, though here she doesn't seem very happy:).



The next day we went to the Rookery to see the birds.  Pictures don't do it justice.  There were soooo many birds!





A few days later, Dada got there! And gave Griff some golf lessons.
He spent every waking minute at Meme's new house in the cul-du-sac, golfing.
We spent a couple days at Tybee Island Beach.
Griff's favorite things were: chasing seagulls and golfing.  Surprise, Surprise.

Hattie hung out in the shade with whomever was back by the chairs.



 
And when we weren't at the beach or pool, more golfing:)
 

Speaking of the pool....we had a blast swimming!



Here we all are.....it was a fabulous trip, can't wait to go back....and traveling with kids...tough but not impossible, especially when you have Meme with you.  She was amazing.  We couldn't have done it without her.
And here are some other moments that pretty much capture our trip....
