weekend at the waterfront

May 22, 2017

Georgia Queen, Savannah
Oh, it's so hard to see the weekend go! But I guess it just gives us something to look forward to right? And when you are playing tourist in your new city, there are so many weekends in the future to look forward to. Since Chris really hasn't had a chance to explore downtown Savannah, we decided to hangout there. 
Waterfront, River Street, Savannah, GA
The kids were excited to get down to the waterfront, and I was excited to go shopping. Being the rookie people that we are, and coming from a smallish town in Georgia, we really weren't anticipating the parking madness that we endured. I mean, parking garages full, lots of parking tickets being given, and then there was just us in our mini van like.....maybe we just grab a coffee and go home? Ha! The kids were promised boats, so we had to deliver. 
We started out at the River Street Market, and just kind of walked from there. The kids loved seeing all the different vendors, and basically drinking every different lemonade that was offered. The heat was ON!!! And we were a bunch of sweaty messes. Chris kept saying "I feel like no one else is sweating. What is wrong with us?". Like I said, rookies.

Besides the sweat shower that I had happening on my person, I could have spent hours outside looking at all the handmade crafts, and eating off all the food trucks. But, after two hours of walking, Ace's face kind of says it all in that picture above. The kids were getting tired and hungry. Which played into my shopping hand perfectly. We grabbed them yet another lemonade and some hot dogs, and headed to some air conditioned stores to seek refuge.....and let mama get her shop on. The girls fell asleep in the stroller, the boys were content hangin with dad, and I was like a kid in a candy store. 

Pass me a few more weekend like this! 

How was your weekend? What did you do?

  10. Oh savannah! Twice I have stayed in a hotel off 95 with dreams of getting in there but never happened. The heat and parking would be a lot for me to bear! But at least there was lemonade and shopping!!
