St. Simons Vacation

We took Mollie to the beach for the first time from July 6th-9th. We have been terrified of how she would do on the car trip to St. Simons Island. Would she scream? Would she flip-out? She actually did really well! We were blessed that she played with toys for 2 hours, napped for an hour or so, and then played for a little while longer before we stopped for lunch at our favorite Thai restaurant in Savannah, The King and I. Mollie flirted with EVERYONE in the restaurant and tried yellow curry with tofu. We then traveled another 1.5 hours to the Island. She did have a bit of a melt-down, but the Karl application on David's IPhone saved the day.

There was nothing like seeing Mollie's eyes light up at the sight of the ocean. She smiled, kicked, and said, "Mmm". She ate sand, got sand EVERYWHERE, and kicked the waves as they tickled the shore. She saw crabs on the beach, went to the Tidelands Center on Jekyll and the Sea Turtle Rehab Center, and she now knows "turtle". I think that she made friends with about 200 people during our vacation. She waved at them, shrieked at them, and made sounds and gestures that they thought was her blowing kisses. She definitely knows how to work the crowd. I wonder who she got that from?

Here are a few pictures from our trip- I'll post more in another blog.
