Maiden Voyage : Skidaway Island State Park

It was my goal to have "The Jones" ready by our spring break, and  though it's not finished *completely*, he was ready enough to get us the hell out of East Tennessee where snow was in the forecast for each day of our vacation.
Turned our storage door into a chalkboard 
We had planned all along for his first trip to be to Hot Springs,NC with some friends, but alas, we were snowed out/in. So, we did indeed have a case of March Sadness and on a whim loaded him up and headed to Skidaway Island State Park in Savannah, GA.

Sun Shine and Spanish Moss does the heart good! I found this campground just by googling "campgrounds near Savannah, Ga" It had lots of great reviews, and they all proved true. The sites were private, the showers clean, and the trails well marked.

We hiked each day we were there. I say "hiked," but it was more just like a walk since the land is very, very flat unlike the trails in the mountains were we are used to. Above are just a few of the amazing scenic spots we saw along the way.

Each night, we made the 25 minute drive into downtown Savannah. We heart Savannah. It's where we honeymooned and may very well be our favorite city :)

The Azaleas were blooming all over the city!

To get to the nearest beach from Skidaway, you have to drive about 40 minutes to Tybee Island. I'm not going to lie, even though the sun was shining, it was chilly on the beach in March. But.....
We did throw down at The Crab Shack on Tybee. A platter as big is Aaron's face. Amazing.

After 3 nights, sadly, it was time to head home :( We will definitively return though; we LOVED it!

*Next post will be camping versus hotel when traveling*

Vintage Sports Baby Shower and Maternity Shoot

Our Whichcrafters craft club hosted a shower for one of our members. She did the baby's room in a vintage sports theme, so that's the theme we went with for her shower and photo shoot. It turned out to be such a fun theme to work with!
I decorated my mantel with basketballs, daisies, and patriotic colors.
We took pictures before the shower at a local baseball field.
Baseball cake!

Here we are cheering our little mommy on! The flags that you see in the above two pictures were made out of felt and scrap fabric.
H is for Holden :)
I found some old trophies of mine and used them as food markers. I tried throwing the trophies out many, many times, but my mom always jumps in to rescue them. Thanks mom, they finally came in handy for something!
For our craft, we each painted a onesie. They are each so different and so cute! She loved them all!
