For My Birthday He Took Me for Ice Cream

At Leopolds.

Did I mention it was in Savannah?

Yeah we loaded up the crew and headed out to Savannah for a whirlwind weekend. We'd never been and I'm fully of WOW after having gone. Savannah is really amazing and I can see why Sherman didn't burn it.

It was just gorgeous. We putzed around a lot, kind of taking in the city and figuring out what it is we'd like to do when we go back. Which given our brood is probably the best idea.

We also went to eat at THE PIRATES HOUSE which is a haunted restaurant with more atmosphere than anything else. We'd seen it on a show, but all the cool tunnels and stuff under the restaurant were closed. We did get to see this though!

We like to to think those aren't real.

The food was kinda MEH. I don't expect to find mudvanes in my kids fried shrimp, just an FYI Pirates House folks. I mean really, if I have to dig out the pooper scooper to eat your shrimp, I'm kinda bleh about you.

The husband and I did try the she-crab soup though, and it was good and sort of interesting.

Our last day was perfect with a trip to Tybee Island, which is about 18 miles east of Savannah. It was such a good time. And we got lucky and had a really warm day so we could even swim that day. That was really unusual for October.

I can't wait to go back. Savannah was awesome.

Of course now I'm sick today. So, I suppose I CAN wait.

But it was a great way to start out my 42nd year. Thanks Hunny. Fantastic surprise.
