On Monday, we got up and headed to Foxy Loxy for breakfast, and OMG, y’all – they had this egg and cheese kolache, and it was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever had for breakfast. It was like having a tiny pizza. Their chai tea was amazing, and even Sheffield liked their vegan cookie dough brownie. He choose the vegan one because it had colorful sprinkles on it, and he actually really enjoyed it.
After breakfast, we headed over to Forsyth Park. They have these beautiful oak trees lining their paths, and of course, a playground for Sheff. The weather was beyond incredible. Sheff, unfortunately, got his first experience getting the wind knocked out of him when he fell from the monkey bars – luckily, it didn’t seem to stunt him too much, since he was back up and playing again pretty quickly.
After the park, we headed over to Tybee Island. Sheff had such a good time in Hilton Head, we told him we’d go to another beach. The weather was so pretty – and Sheff collected himself a whole bucket of shells. We did about a mile and half walk down to the pier and came back. Sheff played – jumping in the waves (even though it was freezing cold), and digging in the sand. After about a couple of hours, we were pretty hungry, so we hit up Chamacos Tacos, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect place. They had cheap tacos and margaritas, and it was completely open. Even Sheff and his picky ways approved of this cute little place. Sheff and Bennett played a ton of foosball – I can’t even tell you guys how amazing the weather was. This was my favorite thing we did by far.
After we got back to the hotel, we went down into their heated pool and let Sheff play for a little bit. He quickly made some friends, and they made plans to meet back at the pool again the next day. We got so lucky for dinner, I can’t even tell you. We had no reservations and literally walked right into the Olde Pink House – one of Savannah’s most popular restaurants. It wasn’t in their main seating area, but more in their bar area, but still same food and atmosphere. Seriously – the people behind us were told a two hour wait. We really couldn’t believe our luck. We got a few drinks, and I had the most amazing ravioli. It was our most expensive dinner, but so worth it.
After dinner, we were stuffed, so we headed back to the hotel for some boat watching on the patio.
Our last day, we didn’t really have any plans except to get Sheff on a carriage ride throughout the city. He talked about riding in one since the day we got there – and we told him it would be our last day activity. So, all we really did was walk the city until it was time for our carriage ride. It was actually really interesting – they pointed out a ton of things we didn’t know, and our tour guide was great. We grabbed some lunch at Treylor Park – Hitch. We were pretty disappointed in the actual food, but one thing that was amazing was the Philly Cheesesteak eggrolls, and their beverages were pretty great, too. We then went over to the Cathedral of St. John- and it was absolutely gorgeous. I’m not a particularly religious person, but it made me want to go to confession or something. After,we headed back to the hotel and back to the pool. Sheff’s friend was there, so we were down there for a good long time. The pool was actually a lot warmer this day, so I got in and played too! For dinner, we decided on a pizza, and Sheff got a slice almost as big as he is. It was the perfect way to wind down the trip.
On Wednesday, we got up pretty early and made the drive back to the Ham. There was plenty of laundry and errands to run before resuming normal life on Thursday. B and I celebrated our last day of Spring Break with a sushi dinner outside. I’m really glad we decided to do this instead of going to a beach – looking forward to many more Spring Break trips!
