We dug out our ‘fancy’ clothes, packed our bags and headed out in our rental car for our nieces wedding in Pennsylvania.  After an eleven hour drive our first day we stopped in Savannah, Georgia for the night.  With limited time and not wanting to get back in that car, we splurged and stayed right downtown where we could walk along the river front (as if we don’t see enough water!) and had a great selection of bars and restaurants.  The three bartenders at the Pink Lady recommended a casual place called the Treylor Park for dinner.  Great unique food with movies playing while you eat.  We will be about an hour from Savannah during the summer and I can’t wait to go back when we have more time.  I almost forgot to mention we had our first Hollywood shower in a long long time.

Here are some pictures from Savannah.

Two days later we arrived at my sister’s house.  We don’t see Barb and her husband Ted very often so when we get together, lets just say we make the most of it.  Add in their kids, Brina (the bride) and Andrew, then our son Austin and his girlfriend Nicki who arrived the day before the wedding and we had ourselves some great family time.  Oh I shouldn’t forget the groom, Andrew and yes you read that right.  Barb and Ted have a son Andrew and a new son-in-law named Andrew.  And if that isn’t confusing enough, Brina’s new mother-in-law’s name is Barbara.  I confirmed that there are no Ted’s lurking in the new extended family!

Brina and Andrew planned a lovely wedding and reception.  The music they picked for the DJ kept everyone on their feet dancing and we had a great time.  We were still talking about the music days later.

Here is proof that when we walked in and sat down in the Catholic Church, the church did not come crumbling down.

Here we are with Ted’s sister Sharon and her husband Bubby Still.

The family crammed into the photo booth at the reception for a family picture. Two friends photo bombed us through the curtain lol

We planned to stay with Barb and Ted for a bit however, a weather window opened for us to get the boat from Key West to Georgia.  So while we had to cut our trip short and head back to Sereno, we will be back this summer and plan to catch up with those we promised to see.  And of course, more fun times with Barb and Ted.  We convinced Barb to channel her inner Irish and she now loves Guinness on tap.  Maybe Jamison shots this summer?

Fair winds,

Cindy
