Our Weekend Trip to Savannah

About a month ago we had the exciting arrival of a new cousin- Isaac Russell! We were all really happy to have a new cousin/nephew and decided to make a trip down to meet him, as well as visit with Adrienne, Russ and Tiffany.
The completely ironic thing is that I held baby Isaac for a few hours while he was napping and spent quite a bit of time looking at him, but I didn't take any pictures of him! I can't believe it!
I only took pictures when I had my purse physically on my body, since that is when I remembered I had a camera.
I'm sad that I didn't get a single picture of Isaac. He is so cute and perfect. So beautiful.
Russ and Adrienne took us to catch fiddler crabs near their house. It was really fun. We got there right after the tide had come in and there were literally millions of fiddler crabs running for the grass. It was really cool, but kinda grotesque at the same time to see so many of the little guys swarming around. I tried to get a picture of them, but it just didn't work. They were too fast.

I guess fiddler crabs are known for their uneven sized claws. And they like to dig and bury themselves in the mud. I don't really know anything else about them. There were some that were big and some that were tiny.

We collected as many as we could in a bucket.

Then we let them go.
Matt set the 2 biggest ones up to duke it out. It was really funny to watch because they actually did fight and go after each other. One of them got the other one around the neck and clamped him down.

We also made a trip out to Tybee Island since Savannah has never been to the beach before. We weren't sure if the water would be nice enough to swim in, but it was a warm day and the kids wanted to get in.

Luckily, I had packed their bathing suits, just in case.

They had a blast.
Playing in the water
Digging and playing in the sand

They probably would have been happy to stay there all day.
I see a beach vacation in our future.
