2016 Summer Vacation to Tybee Island - Part 1

Adam and I love being able to take Connor on trips whenever we can, and we decided to do a little summer vacation at the beach in 2016.

We had originally planned to go back to Pensacola, FL like we did in 2015, but as we got closer to the dates we booked the weather forecast was looking bad. So we cancelled that and changed our plans to go to Tybee Island, GA. In the end, it was actually less expensive and it was somewhere that none of us had been before!

We left Friday afternoon and made the drive, getting into town in time to check in and go to bed.

Little dude slept hard, but it didn't take us long to wake him Saturday morning so we could head to the beach!

We spent all morning playing in the sand and the waves. We were thankful we found a hotel right on the beach so we could easily walk in and out as needed.

Connor loves playing in the sand!

Even though it didn't rain while we were there, the weather was unfortunately still not ideal. We had a ton of wind, so that made the water so rough that they eventually put up double red flags and told everyone to stay out. Not ones to be deterred from having fun, we decided it was a good time for lunch and to explore the island.

We had some yummy lunch at a little place right across the street from our hotel.

We also found a fun ice cream and shaved ice spot for a treat.

I snapped this fun photo of my boys as we walked around exploring the area.

We also drove around a bit and stopped in a few of the beachy shops to poke around a bit. We made our way back out to the beach for a bit that afternoon, but we still weren't able to get in the water. After a bit, we cleaned up for the evening and drove into Savannah. We found a delicious pizza place, and then walked around a bit before heading back to our hotel.

It was a really fun first day of our trip!
