Georgia Florida 2016

Last weekend was one of our favorite weekends...Georgia/Florida weekend!  This weekend is not only about football but a fun getaway to Amelia Island which is one of our favorite places!  We left on Thursday afternoon.  Blake and Kasey got here around 1:00 and we packed up and headed out.  We had all decided we wanted to stop that evening in Darien to eat at Skippers.   It was so nice eating out near the water!

We made a few grocery stops then headed straight to our condo.  We were staying at the Plantation this year and we really loved it!  On Friday morning while all the guys were out playing golf, Kasey and I not only slept in, but then we headed out to sit and relax on the beach!  Heaven!  I love it there so much and it was so nice to sit and talk on the beach and read.  There were also no little ones needing anything from us, and while I adore my kids more than anything, its always nice to get a tiny little break.  On the beach you could see where a lot of sea debris had washed up on the beach from Hurricane Matthew.  Some of the dunes had been washed away but overall everything was ok.  I know the hurricane hit during low tide which helped a little. 

We met up with a lot of our friends for lunch.  The guys had finished golfing and we had showered and gotten ready for the day.  After lunch we did a little shopping then came back to the beach for a little longer before dinner.  We all met up at our normal dinner spot for Friday night.  Our group has about 35 people so we all have a great time!   We all had ice cream after dinner at DeNucci's which is my favorite.  Dole Whips are the best!   We hung out a while longer while the boys played some cards then headed back to our place.

Kasey and I loved this little rainbow peeking out

Saturday we got up and made our way to Jacksonville.  We had a great tailgate and just had a lot of fun all afternoon.  We all knew the game might not be the best but it was still hard to watch so many mistakes.   We actually had a woman in front of us who had her book with her to read.  That is a sure sign that things aren't going to well. 

One thing about it, its always better to lose when you have a big group of friends to be with.  We left Jacksonville and headed back to our usual after the game spot-Chili's.   After dinner we headed back to the condo and just relaxed.
Sunday we headed back home.  Another place we always like to stop and eat is the Coleman house in Swainsboro.  Don't you love having little spots to stop at on road trips?!  I have some sweet pictures of my girls in front of this house on trips we have made.  Since they weren't on this one, I got one of Hubby and I.  And of course Blake.   We had such a fun weekend. And we were lucky enough that this year Halloween fell on Monday so we didn't have to miss out on that with the kids.   Cohen was in a Halloween parade with ATRM on Saturday night.  She also was a winner in the costume contest. She was so excited to tell me that.  I knew she had a great time.  A HUGE thank you to Sug & Pop, Suzy and Denny, Dawn & Westley, and my sister for keeping our kids and Dooley!  They all had a blast while we were away!
