We made it to the coast line while we were in savannah as well. We very rarely get a chance to see the ocean, Madilyne hated it...I think it was the sound of the waves she didn't like. James we couldn't keep out of it. We only stayed for about 30 minutes as it was hot in the car and Grandma Briggs couldn't walk to the ocean front. It is nothing like the west coast beaches where you park and there you are, you have to walk at least 50 yards to get to the sand, and then another 10 yards or so to the shore line. It was low tide when we were there, and there was this interesting little bar of little shells just sitting there, it looked like rocks from standing up but when you got close you could see it was a bunch of little shells.

We went to Savannah on a business trip. We had to shoot a wedding, we sadly only had enough time and money to spend a couple days, but we did have fun there. Lots of pretty squares to play in, and fun things to look at. My favorite picture of the kids that day was this one of them looking at the fountain. Madilyne looked like she just wanted to jump in and James would have been more then happy to help her. I see my kids growing up so fast and it makes me happy and sad all at once. Happy that they are growing and thriving and learning new things every day, but sad because they are no longer my "babies". I am greatful I have been entrusted to keep them safe, and look forward to the many memories ahead!

Madilyne had her first birthday party today, four days early because we have a wedding out of townnext week. Grandma Briggs, Uncle Spencer, Layla, Glenn & Michael all were there. She got lots of fun toys, the really great kitchen play thing from Layla Glenn & Michael and she loves it. She also got her first cabbage patch kid from Grandma Briggs, a peekablocks hippo from us and is getting a new carseat that Uncle spencer helped pay for. Grandma and Grandpa Humecky got her a baby doll with a blanket. She had fun and I can't believe she is getting so big!
