19/52: We Love Savannah!

I'm so glad Carin decided to continue the 52 week challenge! It has taken on a slightly new spin (check it out!), but since I am only on 19 of 52 of this one, I will press on here!

Our Thanksgiving trip to South Carolina and Georgia gave me opportunities to get in the picture and allowed us to spend a few days in one of our all-time FAVORITE cities!

Years ago we fell in love with the city of Savannah, it also holds a special place in my heart because my Mom was born in Savannah - and we have our own little Savannah....

I love to visit Forsyth Park.....

At the end of the park is the hospital where my Mom was born.....
Telfair Hospital - no longer a hospital,
but historically preserved and kept as a Senior residence now.
I told my Mom she could return there now if she liked,
but I don't know if she found that very funny :)
Just kidding - she can be a good sport!


Some of the beauty of Forsyth Park...
Some of the fun.... A great spot to go on a leaf hunt....
And you HAVE to get a picture by the fountain.... And once again, a great time was had by all!....


*********************************************************************

52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. Moms are typically the ones behind the camera, this is OUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family.

So, get yourself in the picture every week for 52 Weeks. Be in a picture with one or more or your children and post your "family photo" on your blog every Thursday - don't forget to list your post on MckLinky on Carin's blog

I love the pics too and I do like the retirement apts you picked out for me! Curious about my favorite pic; what is the story behind the girls each on their own bench? I know what it would have been with you and your 2 bros. But I think this was mom's idea and it is precious. Love to all.
