Continued from Savannah Day 1 Part 2.
Sleeping last night was interesting. It was the little one who would cry in the middle of the night and wake up PL instead of the other way around. At one point, PL woke up and RL thought that it would be sweet to take PL into bed with us to see if she’ll sleep between us….that was a mistake. PL was instantly fully awake and started talking and wanted to play…sigh. It took some effort before we could finally get her back into her own crib and before she would fall back asleep again.
Breakfast, but really, no time for breakfast.
PL is ready to go go go, which means I’ll grab a quick pastry and head out the door.
Interesting little machine here.
Goal for the morning is to walk around all the squares that Savannah is known for in the historic district. The 22 square are set up in a grid pattern so it’s easy to walk from one to the next one.
My crazy child having a blast pushing her stroller around, with some help from grandma.
This was in the square nearest to our hotel.
From one square, you can see the next square just a couple of blocks away.
Each square has its own unique design.
Lots of pollen here as well…but PL’s allergies seemed to have calmed down some. The air in the hotel is still super drying on her skin though, so we are still having to slather her in lotion.
Cue the choir.
Very picturesque city, too bad the morning’s harsh sun is making good photos difficult.
Time for coffee refuel.
Seems like a college student hangout over here.
That’s an opulent looking espresso machine.
Loves cups, loves straws, and loves ice.
Got our coffees, now we keep on walking.
Fancy seeing that here.
It’s even got Euro plates.
Some nice mansions over here.
Up ahead is Forsyth Park, kinda like the Central Park of Savannah.
Now in Forsyth Park.
Happy child, gets to play with a cup with water in it.
Look at those creepy looking creatures. Upper body of men, with legs turned into back half of a fish. Fountain designers come up with some weird mystical creatures.
All throughout our walk this morning, we kept on running across groups of walkers, obvious on an organized walk. Found out that they are walking for multiple sclerosis, and they will be walking 50 miles over a 3 day period. Cool.
Also found a GIANT playscape in the park. PL will love this.
RL came down the slide with PL and now her pants are coated in a thick layer of tree pollen.
While PL was playing in the park, I walked around and checked out other bits of the park.
When I came back to the park, I found BH swinging by himself amongst all the other children…
Happy little thing.
Awwww, so cute!!
I think this was the only family photo that we took on this trip which included everyone. It’s hard to all get together for a photo when you spend most of the time chasing PL around.
Time to leave the park and the playscape. Does not want to leave…
Too bad it was out of focus. Pimped out trike.
On our way out of the park, the entire main walkway was taken over by a bunch of moms doing organized exercises. Seriously, it’s a giant park, do you really have to pick the busiest path and literally take up the whole area so that it’s hard for others to walk around?
This blew my mind. While all the moms did their exercises, all the kids sat calmly and quietly in their strollers and waited…I can see CL doing that, but no way in hell that PL would calmly stay in her stroller.
Seriously, can’t y’all at least leave half of the walkway for others?
I wonder why all the historical homes here have entryway from the second floor. I wonder if it used to flood often or something?
I’d be afraid of those thin old metal supports breaking.
