Baby, Georgia Trip

Well, I 've been a bad blogger lately, but here are a few happenings in our life.
The big news is that on Sept. 18th we find out whether to buy blue or pink paint for the nursery!! We can't wait!! It feels like it has taken an eternity to be almost 20 weeks and be able to schedule the "big" ultrasound. I have also started to feel some flutters from the baby moving around. And there is no doubt that I am pregnant...I am beginning to show!

Two weeks ago Collin and I went to Atlanta for a wedding of one of his good friends. Collin had a good time catching up with his old buds from Georgia, playing some golf, and staying up way too late for us old folks!! On Sunday, after the wedding was over, we took a short trip to Savannah. Neither one of us had been there before and it is a place that I wanted to "check off the list" as having visited. It is as beautiful as it looks in the postcards and on TV. Lots of moss dripping off the trees and blocks and blocks of old, historical homes. We stayed in one of them which was transformed into a bed and breakfast in the historic district part of the city (The Eliza Thompson House: The first day we were there we lined up at 9am to get on the reservation list at The Lady and Sons, Paula Deens restaurant!! Eating at Paula's was a MUST on the to do list. We then took a trolley ride through the city that hit all the highlights of the history in the city. We then went back to a couple of the stops that were of real interest to us so we could spend more time at them. We saw Forsythe Park (the famous fountain), a really old cemetery, The Mercer House, two old churches, one Catholic and one which was the first African American built church (it was also a stop on the Underground Railroad), and we toured a haunted historic home which had entertained Gen. Robert E. Lee. We topped the day off with dinner at The Lady and Sons. I had her southern buffet and Collin tried the peach salsa grouper. The tastiest dish was the fried green tomatoes!! Delish!! Although we got a pic with the fake Paula Deen, the real Paula Deen did not make an appearance that night. We left VERY full and very tired after a really long day of trying to see all the sights of Savannah. We headed back for Big D the next day after having a wonderful time on our "Babymoon."

Note: my computer is acting funny so I am not able to add pics at this time. I will work on it some more after I publish this post.
