Time with Family, Part 2

In April (yes, I'm still that behind on blogging), my mother-in-law, Belinda, came to SC to see us! Kevin and I had an amazing weekend exploring Savannah and Beaufort with her.

We took a trolley tour around historic downtown Savannah, and I have to say that is the best way to familiarize yourself with a new place. You get a brief look into lots of different areas in a relatively short amount of time, and you learn a ton of interesting facts about local history and culture. After the tour, we enjoyed lunch at a local restaurant, Moon River Brewing Co, sampled and bought fresh pralines at Savannah Candy Kitchen (YUM!), perused Colonial Park Cemetery, browsed the outdoor market, and witness a huge container ship coming into the port.

After church on Easter Sunday, we took Belinda to Beaufort to show her the air station (where Kevin works) and the charming downtown area.  We enjoyed lunch on the patio at Q on Bay, and then we discovered an incredible local art gallery.

Belinda, we absolutely loved having you here and we are already looking forward to your next visit!  Thank you so much for coming to see us!
