We had an amazing weekend full of time with Maddie Grace’s Grandma (my mom) at her beach house on Tybee Island. My mom and her husband currently live in Germany, although they kept their houses here in Georgia, so we don’t get to see her all that often. We are being crazy and taking MG on the long flight to go to Europe in September though and that will be the next time we see her!
It stinks that the only time we had to visit Grandma this time was a weekend. Not even a long weekend. But we made the most of it. Saturday we got up and headed to the beach before it started storming. Maddie Grace is a total beach babe and loved splashing in the water. I’m pretty sure she is happiest at the beach. When the storms rolled in we packed up and went back to my moms house and my dad came over for a low country boil.
Sunday my dad grilled out at his house and my mom came over and we grilled out and spent time together (it was a little rainy again) before we had to head back to Atlanta. It might not sound like we did a lot, but sometimes those are the best weekends, especially when you are spending time with family.
We are leaving for New Jersey on Thursday to visit Tom’s family and don’t get back until Monday evening so I’ve been running around like crazy trying to get ready for this trip as well. I’m so excited to visit all of Tom’s cousins and to get to meet another new baby in the family but traveling stresses me out, especially now that MG is at the age where she hates sitting still but hopefully this will be a good precursor to our long flight with her this Fall.
Hope everyone is having a great start to the holiday week and have amazing plans for this weekend!
