School's Out For Summer!!

The year flew by and now it's over!!! School is officially out for summer!!! Grayson had his end of year program on Tuesday morning and he did awesome!!! Mommy was actually in charge of the program so I didn't get to focus on just him, but I'm glad Daddy got some great pictures!!






Taking a bow!!


And today was his last official day!!

Here is his picture from his first day of school this year!  I can't believe how much our little guy has grown in just 8 short months!!


Little sister wanted to be a part of the pictures too!!

Grayson and his sweet teacher, Ms. Natalie!!

His sweet class.
 I know he's going to miss these friends. Most of them are heading to Pre-K next year, but we've decided to enroll Grayson in the 4's class at Allison Creek and we're excited!!

Silly faces!

These sweet little sisters got to join in the fun on the last day of school!! They will both be big preschool girls next year and in the same class!!

To celebrate, Grayson's class enjoyed a fun pizza party...

and yummy ice cream sundaes!!!

Such a wonderful last day of school!!!

And the fun wasn't over quite yet!! Once Daddy got home from work we celebrated by taking the kiddos for snow balls at Pelican's!!



Such a fun ending to a great year!! Now we're ready for the lazy days of summer!!!

It was also a little bittersweet for me as I've decided to not work at the preschool next year! I have loved teaching there, but I know it will be easier on Ella Grace next year if I'm not there so I'm going to enjoy the year off and hopefully return in the future!!

Anniversary Trip!!

Lucas and I just returned from a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We went to Tybee Island and Savannah for 7 days!! Although we missed our babies like crazy, we had a great time together celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary!!



A favorite tourist spot on the island, The Crab Shack!!

Grayson would have loved the live alligators they had there!!


We loved walking the beach at night to watch the sunset!

We saw tons of jellyfish that had washed up on the beach!






We explored the little pier area and enjoyed a wet willie drink that tasted like college to me!! :)

We also had the chance to tour downtown Savannah on one of the trolley tours!!

The homes and architecture there are beautiful!!





Gorgeous Forsyth Park!




Back on Tybee, we got to see the house where they filmed the movie, The Last Song, which is also one of my favorite Nicholas Sparks books!

We also saw the church from the movie, which was beautiful!

We visited the Tybee lighthouse, which is the 2nd tallest lighthouse on the East Coast and 
it's beautiful!




And probably the most beautiful place we visited was the Wormsloe Plantation. This is a special place that has over a mile long street lined with amazing Live Oak trees with spanish moss dripping off of them. The pictures don't even do it justice!! It's amazing! This street was featured in the movies Forest Gump and The Last Song!




Another famous tourist spot in Tybee is the Fort Pulaski National Monument. We didn't get a chance to tour it, but did see the fort from across the Savannah River.


Another beautiful lighthouse, The Cockspur Island Lighthouse, which marks the south channel of the Savannah River. It was built in 1837 and the only way you can get to it is by water.

On our last night there we had our own little photo shoot in the dunes at sunset with some amazing driftwood!!






Such a wonderful time with my love and a trip we will always remember. 

However, after being gone for a week we were so ready to get home to our babies and squeeze them tight!!
