Tybee Island Day Two and Part of Day Three

Yesterday we went to the lighthouse (and climbed a buttload of stairs) and to Fort Pulaski. It was interesting to see. I would have enjoyed the Fort a little bit more if I hadn't been so hungry. My brother made lowcountry boil, which everyone loved, but I didn't eat it since I don't like seafood. Kristy (my cousin-in-law) and I went on a bike ride. It was lots of fun. I really need to ride my bike more when I get back home. Anyways, when we got back, my cousin was mad at me because I was "beating" her at FarmTown (game on facebook). She stormed out of the house and went on a car ride. She told her mom that she was planting grapes so that she could beat me quicker (or something to that effect). Anyways, she calmed down when she got back, but at 1:30 in the morning, she had the laptop in bed with her, harvesting her grapes. I was trying to sleep and I was extremely annoyed at her. I held my tongue because I didn't want to start something with her. But really, she couldn't have harvested her grapes somewhere else. It's a stupid game on facebook. Get over it! She kept me awake with that stupid laptop. Anyways, this morning we went to take a family picture on the beach. I hate taking family pictures, because they take FOREVER! We have to pose in like ten different spots and it's hot as anything out there. Anyways, this afternoon we are going to go eat in Savannah and then go on a dolphin tour. Should be fun!

Tybee Island Day One

I rode the train to Savannah yesterday. I definitely got to the train station way early. It took all of 5 minutes to get my ticket and check my luggage. I had 45 minutes before the train would even arrive. I sat in the lounge and read a magazine. Only one other person got on the train when I did. There were people on the train when I boarded, but it wasn't crowded. I had two seats to myself. The view was pretty nice. The sun was setting right when we went over the river. I tried to take a picture but by the time I got the camera on my phone ready, we passed it. The house is extremely nice. I'm going to try and take some pictures. Now on to the first funny story of the week. My cousin, Dee, was sleeping on the top bunk of one of the bunk beds. This morning he said he was freezing because he didn't have a blanket. We were confused. Well, Tiff (his sister) and I looked at his bed and he hadn't even slept under the covers! He was using a towel as a blanket! Hilarious! He didn't realize that the bed already had blankets on it! Also, some of the family went to a local church this morning. I didn't go, but Dee decided to ride his bike. He said when he walked in the door it was all old people and he was getting evil looks because he was wearing shorts so he left. I find that extremely sad that he didn't feel welcome just because of what he was wearing. I hope that when people come to Old Fort that they feel welcome no matter what they are wearing.

My adventures in the past couple of weeks

I took a quick trip to DC with Krista and Jason to pick up 2 cute little Westies. Krista and Jason were keeping one and the other was going to a family in Greenville. We went into the city on July 3 and it was crazy! I'm hoping to go back when it's less crowded. Here are some pictures from that trip.

Then I went to youth camp this past week with the youth. It was tons of fun. There are some great kids in the youth group at the church. Here are some highlights (and lowlights) from the trip.

I just got back from youth camp on Saturday and DC the week before. I will post some pics soon. I had tons of fun with the youth and I am seriously considering helping with them. They are some of the best young people I've met. Most of them are pretty good kids. Right now I'm fixing to make cupcake bites with Hannah and Kaelyn for the Peru team that leaves on thursday.
