Savannah Birthday Party

Here is a brief story that I shared with the readers of Mommy Buzz and now I am finally getting a chance to post it so you can read it as well. 

Ethan was recently invited to a friends 3rd birthday party in Savannah. It didn't take us long to decide after receiving the invitation that we would love to make a day trip and attend this birthday party. We were very blessed to meet some families while living in Savannah for 8 months this past year and felt it would be fun to see them again.

So Friday night we packed up our car and set our alarms. Early Saturday morning we headed to Savannah and drove straight to the party. Micah's party was a car theme and it was so adorable. They had games, snacks, pizza, car races,car painting (no...not real cars. The kids painted small wooden ones from a craft store) and more. The kids had a blast and Ethan told me, "Thank you for letting me come to his party." That was such sweet words to hear. Although on our way there he kept telling us, " This is a long, long, long way. He lives really far." I guess he thought it was just across town or something. But both boys did great.

After leaving the party we drove around Richmond Hill (which is the town we lived in) looking at neighborhoods. I know you are probably wondering why? Well, there is a possibility we could end up there sometime this year. This move would be a permanent move though. It is sad and happy at the same time. I don't honestly think much about it anymore b/c there is alot of little details that would need to happen before it became possible so we are just praying and waiting. So if you think about us, just say a pray for us. We appreciate it tons.

Next we had to run by Gus' job for a little bit. There were some issues that had come up and since he was in town he needed to take care of them in person. So the boys and I waited in the car and played and talked. By this time we were all starting to get hungry tummy's (as my Ethan would say) so we ventured to downtown Savannah. Man was it crowded....but we managed.

We ended up eating dinner at a place could Heuy's. It was a great restaurant on River Street and we ended up getting Blackened Chicken and Pesto Ravioli's. Go figure....But it was so good!
I will tell you the boys favorite part--those sweet potato fries and corn bread. Ethan loved it so much that as the waitress came by to clean up our plates she picked up the plate with 4 fries left. Ethan looked at her and said, " I wasn't done and almost started crying." The poor waitress gave his fries back and the look on his face was priceless.

By this time it was getting dark and decided to walk along the river and of course had to stop by the best toffee store in town. River Street Treats. So we topped our night off with 2 hot toffee and nut pralines. Yummy....
Now it was starting to get extremely cold and windy so in my opinion it was time to head home. We loaded up, changed the boys into P.J.'s back at the car and headed back to Jax.

What a day but we had such a great time!

Here are some pictures from the party. And I have one surprise at the end...Can you guess who he is?

The surprise is......
Gus shaved his beard. But he is growing it back. What do you think?

"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being."
