Monday we woke up refreshed and glad to have a good night’s sleep! We were also glad that we had no more traveling to do for awhile! So Monday morning we went downstairs and had breakfast in the hotel. It was delicious! They had so many things to choose from and it was FREE! Ha! Yes, this hotel offers free breakfast every morning, and free supper M-F! Woo-Hoo!
After breakfast we all got ready to leave for my mom & dad’s house. When we got there, my sisters were both there, my brother, one of my nephews, and brother-in-law. It was so exciting to see everyone. This is when my parents, one of my sisters & nephew got to meet my girls for the very first time! It was great! Jacey was a little shy (but only at first), and Jadyn was smiling & talking right from the start! 😀
After staying there for quite awhile, I wanted to show Jace & the girls around Savannah a little bit. So, we went downtown to Forsyth Park and down by the river on River Street. I took lots of photos in which I will have to share later. I have to get them off of my camera first! 😉
I recently found out that my mother’s health has took a turn for the worse. A last minute decision was made to take a trip to Georgia to visit my family. After weighing the costs, we decided we would drive to Georgia. I really wanted to see my family, as I haven’t since 2004 -at my wedding. A trip was LONG overdue.
Two days later, we are here! It took 2 full days of driving to get here, We left Saturday morning, and got here Sunday night at around 10:30 pm. Saturday night, we stopped late at a hotel and slept, then was back at it Sunday morning. It was a LONG drive that seemed like it would never end…LOL! Day 1 was fun, but on day 2 we were tired of it. Although I will say that we enjoyed seeing the states from the view of our SUV. Flying, you don’t get to see all of that, but then again, with flying you’re there MUCH faster, ha!
It was great, though! I forgot how beautiful Tennessee is. Breathtaking! As for Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, & Kentucky, it was all new to me. It was really cool! 🙂
Here are the states we drove through, in order! North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and then finally GEORGIA! PHEW! 😉 What a trip!
So here we are in our hotel in Savannah, Georgia! Next post will be more about our hotel & much more–stay tuned! 😀
