Not only did both the parents and kiddos survive camp, but Aunt Erin survived an 8 hour drive with all 5 kids in the car – and stayed in Savannah to visit for a few days to boot! It was wonderful to have her here, and wonderful to see all the cousins enjoying each other so much. We played plenty of video games, of course, but also visited the Ellis Square fountains, fed alligators at the Crab Shack, and ate ice cream at Leopold’s. But the most amazing part was the afternoon we spent at Tybee where we found ourselves swimming with manatees! It was an unbelievable experience. The manatees were less than six feet away from us at times, and you could see their huge, hulking bodies just below the surface. When they came up for air, their fuzzy snouts poked above the water and you could hear them snort. I know it is something I will never forget. And I hope the special bond Fletcher and Lola have with their cousins is something they will never forget.
