So I said "Yes, baby, you can sing, let's just sing a different song, okay. What do you want to sing?"
She says "Jesus loves Me." and she starts singing a mixture of Jesus loves Me and Joy in my Heart which sounds like this : "Jesus loves me in my heart, Jesus loves me in my heart, the Bible tells me so!" So I sing with her and then she wants to sing "Little David Play on your Harp" so we sing that. Then the questions begin! ha!
A: Mama, where's David?
Me: He's in the bible.
A: No, where he live?
Me: Well, he used to live a long time ago, but now he's in heaven with Jesus.
A: What's heaven (but sounds like Kevin)
Me: Heaven is where Jesus and God live. And the people who love Jesus will get to live there with Him one day!
Me: Because Jesus told us that He would go and prepare a place for us to live with Him forever!
A: Mama, what Jesus told me?
Me: (I repeat above sentence again) Then I tell her something like Jesus will come back and take us to live with Him one day or we will go to heaven when we die.
A: Where's heaven?
Me: Well, heaven is where Jesus is but you can't go there now. It's not someplace you can drive.
A: Jesus is going to drive us there? (ha!)
Me: No, we'll probably fly there with Jesus!
A: I'm going to have wings???
Me: Not exactly but something like that.
A: Mama, what you said?
Me: I said you were going to fly there with Jesus but we probably won't have wings!
Then, the picture changes to Jesus coming to her house.
A: Mama, Jesus coming to my house and take a nap?
Me: No, Jesus doesn't take naps. He doesn't have to sleep! (Trying to convey a sense of a powerful God that He's always there when you need Him!)
A: On the boat?
Me: Oh, yes, Alabama, Jesus did sleep on the boat and the disciples had to wake Him up because they were scared of the storm. You're right!
Wow this girl!!!! I didn't know I'd be having such deep conversations with a 2 year old! ha! So glad that she is interested in the things of God and praying that I have the wisdom to give her the answers she needs for her little mind at this time!

I think she may have had more fun doing this than almost anything else on the trip! ha!
That night, Adam and I had a date night and the kids stayed at the house with Maxine. We went to a place called A.J.'s and it was amazing! We had to wait an hour for a table, but we had plenty of time to talk and it wasn't really that bad. It was well worth the wait! This is what it looked like when we sat down!
For an appetizer we had the buffalo shrimp and they were amazing then I had the stuffed chicken and fries for my meal and it was all sooo good! I can't wait to go back!
It was such a treat to have some time with my sweet husband! When we got back to the house, they were all having a great time and had walked down to the dock. Alabama was being so silly and the cousins were all joining in with her cheerleading/falling down/singing/being absolutely crazy! We got it on video and it is soo funny!
We had to be out of the house by ten, so we packed up and headed to Savannah for a little while before we headed home. We went to the mall and the Bass Pro Shops and ate at a Texas Roadhouse which was very good. I almost liked it better than the Logan's Roadhouse we have here. It was a great trip and I'm so glad that we got to go and make some fun memories with family! Thanks Georgia for inviting us!

After the beach Wednesday, we came back to the house and cooked lasagna that I brought and ate supper then we went to go to some shops on the island but they were closed. So we found this super cute park! The kids loved it!
The next morning, we got up and ate breakfast and Georgia and I took the kids shopping in Savannah. Anna and Morgan and a friend, Kalynn got airbrush tattoos. We bought a few things and we also saw this neat little Echo Square where if you stand in the middle of it, you can hear your voice echo, but no one else can! Very neat! We went back to the house and ate lunch and Alabama took a nap while I read a book. That night, we went back to Savannah to meet my cousin, Jeff, and his girlfriend, Brooke. We ate at the Pirate House. Bad. Idea! The food was really good, but the real pirate inside was not! Alabama won't even let me tell people about it! ha! She was so scared! After we ate, we went down to River Street Sweets! We got a little fudge and some gummy butterflies then headed back to Tybee. It was good to see them, but wish we could have visited longer!
I'll post the second part in another post, but here are some family photo time pics! I've always wanted to do pictures on the beach and we all went down to the beach Saturday morning and took some. I think a few turned out really good, but Alabama was so NOT into taking pictures that morning! I don't really blame her, it was soo humid and I was sweating like crazy!
