So, the word on the street is that everyone is tired of looking at the turtles on our blog. I don’t blame you one bit!

Things have been pretty busy at our house. We got back from vacation about two weeks ago. We went to Atlanta for a few days and then on to Savannah to finish out our trip. While in Atlanta, we saw our favorite group the Dave Matthews Band. We had great seats. Little did we know that we needed to take into account Atlanta’s 5:00p.m. traffic while trying to get to the show. The traffic was insane. We survived and are very thankful that all we really have to deal with is Hardy Street! Anyways, we also went to Stone Mountain. It was Shawn’s first time to see it. It is still amazing for me to see it…no matter how many times I have been. We were able to drive by my mom’s old house. She lived in the city of Stone Mountain when she was a teenager. It was pretty cool to check out her old running grounds!

After two nights in Atlanta we went on to Savannah. It was absolutely beautiful. It only rained once and that was the last night we were there. We went on four different tours…two history tours and two ghost tours(two of which we on a horse-drawn carriage). I am still shocked I agreed to go on the ghost tours. I’m a scaredy cat when it comes to things like that. I really enjoyed them, though. It is amazing how much history is in Savannah. We saw many of the Forrest Gump landmarks and other famous places while there. It would be absolutely impossible to actually list all of the things we saw!

The day before we headed home, we drove out to Tybee Island. I think that was the first time we both saw the Atlantic Ocean. While on the island, we went to Fort Pulaski. There was even an alligator swimming in the moat!.

While we were on vacation, Shawn’s chest was bothering him pretty bad on his left side. It hurt him to look over his shoulder while driving, to sneeze and to take a deep breath (not all at once). The day after we got home, I made him (I’m mean!) go to Immediate Care to get it checked out. They did x-rays and the whole 9 yards. Turns out he had pleurisy! There really isn’t much they could do about it. He just had to keep taking anti-inflammatories. It finally cleared up earlier last week. Thank goodness!
