So, back to our summer. Our first trip was to Tybee Island in early June. We went with Grandmama and Granddaddy and rented an old Tybee cottage for a week. It was really beautiful and quaint and we had a great time kicking back and living on Tybee Time! Caroline and Madison boogie boarded, we sunned and ate great food and visited all of our favorite haunts. Emily really likes the beach and spent most of her time under the canopy snacking - could she be related to her Granddaddy? I think so! A highlight of the week was when Em and I went for a quick bath in the old clawfoot bathtub in the house. As we were getting into the water, the clawfeet slipped out from underneath the tub ripping out the water pipes from the wall and sending water spraying everywhere. Good times. It was lovely! Gotta love old houses!!!! Another funny story is that when we took the girls to Fort Pulaski, Caroline had an absolute fit about the "guns" - they were having a musket and cannon firing demonstration and she wouldn't go anywhere near them! So funny. I got a really cute picture of her pacing back and forth just waiting for those loud booms to be over!

who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready
to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity."
