Tybee Island, Savannah
Beach weekends! This is still a wonderfully new phenomenon for us, and we can't get enough. Being so close to so many beaches is just crazy for this family from Alaska. I still compare everything to Alaska because that is probably the only place in the last ten years that I can say felt like home. Every move before that just....didn't. And all of my children's first memories were made there, and they are very quick to say "I'm from Alaska" when asked. Even though the boys were born in Scottsdale.  (Army life can be strange). Savannah is very quickly feeling like home. As if we have been here for much longer than six weeks.

So last weekend we decided to go to Tybee Island! It is not too far of a drive from us, and since it was not a holiday weekend we figured it wouldn't be so crazy busy. There are three spots on Tybee Island for beach goers. The north, mid, and south beaches. We have heard that the south beach is the most crowded because there are tons of restaurants and shopping down in that area. The north is where the lighthouse is and it has a large parking lot, so we kind of figured that that spot would be busy as well because of ease of parking. We were right! So we set out for mid beach. We found street parking, and had to walk a little further to get to a beach entrance.

It seems as though everyone just kind of sets up shop right off the boardwalk. So there was this huge spot of unoccupied beach about a half a mile walk in. That is where we headed! There was not a single person around us, just people walking the beach, which was so nice not to mention easy to keep an eye on the kids. 
They were clearly loving life!! Kids at the beach are non-stop. There is not a damn thing relaxing about going to the beach with kids. Which is all fine and dandy if you are Chris! I don't think he came out of the water once. He and the boys were just diving and giving me heart palpitations as a wave would take them under. Pierce would jump up and say "that was awesome" while giving me a thumbs up (he knows I need reassurance). Odette just ran from the water to her sand toys and back again about 300 times, which means I did too. 

Please remind me to bring coffee on the next beach trip!

But, it was obviously so fun! And we all fell asleep on the couches attempting to watch Beauty and the Beast when we got home. 


*We got so many questions from people about our beach umbrella, because it was pretty windy out and this thing did not move. Lots of people asked about it on my insta-stories as well. You can get it here.

  2. YAY BEACH!!!! Such great pictures.

    OKAY, so I"m a new reader, but YOU LIVED IN ALASKA!?!?! How long? Fill me in? We visited in 2014 and my husband asks me all the time to move out there, but I'm like tooooo far. It's gorgeous, yes, but being so far away from family scares me.

  5. Your kids are like little fish! This definitely means that a PMF family trip to Hawaii is in order. I'll stock the coffee, wine and crudité - you bring the fam.
