Savannah - Day Three

Sunday, May 10, 2009


Hubby and I had looked ahead to attending a church this morning, and decided on First Baptist Savannah. It's the oldest church in Savannah and also affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (which Hubby and I are seriously looking at joining). It sits on the beautiful Chippewa Square.

We ate a quick breakfast and got dressed to go, with GO wearing her new 0-3 month dress!

She feel asleep and made the nursery worker VERY happy (she was the only baby there). GO was able to snuggle down and get rocked for over and hour, and she LOVES to be held!
Lunch was at The Pirate's House. We walked there from church, less than a mile - but long enough for little legs attached to hungry stomachs! I did manage to capture this old picture of three dangerous pirates!
We did a tour of the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, which was very exciting for me (being a GS Leader). I'm now eligible to wear a special pin signifying I am a "daughter of the house". Pretty cool for a girl like me! I can't wait to take my Girls!

The walking we did around the Savannah Historic District led us to Colonial Park Cemetery. Inside there are several noteworthy graves, including Button Gwinnett's (he was one of the three Georgia signers of the Declaration of Independence) and the duelist who killed Button Gwinnett (General Lachlan McIntosh).

We also saw the Savannah City Police, where outside their building they had one of the actual 1953 police cars. The Caterpillars thought that was really nifty!
Dinner was going to be at our campsite, but we decided to take CW out to the place he's been begging to go to - one of Paula Deen's restaurants. She has two in Savannah, The Lady and Sons is her "fancy" restaurant, while Uncle Bubba's Oyster House is the one she owns with her brother.

We all really enjoyed Uncle Bubba's (especially the fried dill pickles), and the fried chicken was the best I have ever had.

B10 kept GO entertained, she was just laughing and smiling at him!

After eating we let the Caterpillars play on the "boat" that sits out in the courtyard of the restaurant.

Then we drove back through Savannah, so I could take a few more pictures of the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace and also the First Girl Scout Headquarters, before going to our campsite.

Last night, Hubby had taught the Caterpillars to play Hearts and tonight we taught them Spades. Teaching them to play "grown-up" games is so exciting to me, knowing that we are going to able to do this kind of thing with them for years! I was almost sad to go to bed (...almost). B10 ended the night with yet another critter!
