Tybee Island 2015: Day 3-Dinner with friends


On our third day of vacation at Tybee Island, we had fun hanging out at the beach and
taking it easy.  Jody and Noah went on a guided river tour that afternoon with some of the hubby's buddies while the kids and I stayed at the beachhouse and relaxed. As luck would have it, I came down 
with a pretty bad chest infection while we were on our trip, so I wasn't feeling so hot this day.  :-( 

Later that evening, we drove into Savannah to meet some of Jody's old college friends along with Reggie and his family and friends for dinner and one last celebration on Reggie's new command in his unit.

Oh how she loves her Daddy...  :-)

It's so sweet to watch these two together.  
I'm so grateful they share such a special and tender bond 
as father and daughter.  

The restaurant where we ate was more like a pub with an upstairs dining area...when you walk in,
one of the first things you notice is all the military wall decor.  I then noticed that many of the walls are adorned with  photos of fallen soldiers.  It was pretty humbling walking around and reading the names under the photos and how/when they were killed in action.  It was so sad to see how young so  many of them were when they died.  As a mother, I couldn't help but think about their poor mothers and the tremendous heartache they must feel each day. 

 A humbling reminder of the sacrifices that are made daily by men and women of our military forces (and their families) as they go off to war and fight to protect our freedoms.  
I'm so very grateful for their service and sacrifice.

Noah found a buddy to hang out with and play games on the iPad.  :-)

Gavin liked hanging out with all the pretty ladies that were there for the party... :-)

Taylor was helping Daddy order from the menu...

We squeezed in a quick family photo while we were there...

We had a great time spending the evening with the hubby's dear friends from college..

I always enjoy meeting his buddies and hearing all their funny stories from 
their time at A&M and in the Corps of Cadets. They have truly been blessed to share
this life-long bond as brothers and friends.
