Mary's First Beach Trip

Over the weekend our stuff was delivered to our new home in Savannah, Georgia. Boxes literally filled our house and there were about a million and one things to take care of, but on Sunday the weather was beautiful and we decided that a trip to the beach was a much better way to spend our time than unpacking.

We started our Sunday by going downtown for mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, which is where Mary will be baptized next month, and then out to eat at our favorite breakfast place J. Christopher's (I know we've only lived here all but one week so it's a little premature to claim some place as our favorite, but in all our visits to Savannah over the years, we always would make a stop at J. Christopher's - it's amazing. Come visit, and we'll take you).

After breakfast we drove out to Tybee Island which was Mary's first trip to the beach. Finn has her beat though as his first beach trip was when we was two months old when we visited Destin, Florida. He also had already been to Tybee Island, but not since he was 11 months old. I was a little worried that at nearly three he would be scared of the ocean, but he could not get enough of it. He loved playing in the water with Miles and even when he was shivering he would say he wasn't cold and wanted to go back in. He also had a great time playing in the sand with his construction vehicles. Because of course.

It was a perfect Sunday and I can't wait to take them back again next weekend and can't get over the fact that we can take them back next weekend because we live so close to a beach! Visitors welcome!



  1. I really, really want to come visit! There are so many things I love about this. 1. Cale's name, love that he was with you guys. 2. Finn ansd his diggers! 3. Finn's hat with the fin, M had the same one <3 4. You and Mary are matchy matchy. 5. Living so close to the beach. What a great day!!!

  3. Love Cale's name and also the pic of Miles and Finn holding hands. Precious. Duckworths are talking visit timetables for SERIOUS.

  4. Love seeing Cale's name in the sand. And seeing your sweet family this side of heaven all together again!
    Awesome that they loved the beach...I grew up with it and I wish my kids weren't so landlocked. That cathedral is beautiful too! We'll be in Charleston for a wedding this fall, but sadly it's a little too far north I think. Still hoping I can meet that little lady and her amazing chubs one day! :)
