Savannah: Tybee, Leopold's & Vic's on the River

Brandon's mom came into town Wednesday afternoon along with three of her students (she is a middle school music teacher) who were selected to perform in the All State Chorus program held every year in Savannah. They came in a bit early so that Brandon and I could show them a little of Savannah and spend some time with his mom. They all spent the night out at our house on the farm Wednesday night and they got awesome hotel rooms at the Hampton Inn in downtown Savannah for the remainder of their stay to be near the civic center. We started off by taking them to Uncle Bubba's for lunch. Brandon's mother is so gifted at dealing with middle schoolers-she is a real saint!Then we drove out to Tybee to show them the lighthouse and where they filmed the Last Song. After leaving Tybee we headed back to downtown Savannah and walked around and went to Leopold's for some delicious milkshakes. Their ice cream is all homemade in house and has been since 1919-you must go there if you are in Savannah! Right now their featured flavor is Rose Petal Cream in honor of our very own Paula Deen-and it is delicious!Of course, I had to get a picture with some of my favorite people :)Everything is so green and pretty in the city and I just wish I could soak up every single ounce of it's loveliness and put it in a bottle and carry it in my pocket. Thursday evening I went on top of the hotel and watched a gorgeous sunset over this magnificent southern city. It literally took my breath away and I thanked God for allowing us to live near this glorious place. For dinner Thursday night Brandon's mom was so sweet and took us to eat at Vic's on the River and it was incredible!It was so nice to be able to visit with her just the three of us and we are so thankful to have such wonderful mothers. She is my second mother. God could not have blessed me with a better mother-in-law. Award winning crawfish beignets with Tabasco syrup The special for the night was Maine lobster stuffed with crabmeat with a lemon butter sauce topping, which is what both myself and my mother-in-law ordered. Brandon had pecan crusted flounder, which was also wonderful. Our desserts were a decadent chocolate ganache truffle cake and Georgia peach crisp with butter pecan ice cream-right up my alley!"Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar." Isaiah 33:17
