Weekend Getaway(s)

In October, I was blessed to go out of town twice. We went on a family trip to Pine Mountain, Georgia. And, the following weekend was the Ladies Retreat on Tybee Island, Georgia.
Here's the cabin we stayed in at Pine Mountain near Callaway Gardens.

Allyson has become quite the little poser these days. Here she is next to our well.

We enjoyed our fireplace even though it was a warm weekend.

Our cabin had a loft where Allyson slept. She loved it!

Okay, honestly, the pictures of outside that cabin weren't the one we actually stayed in. That was the Pioneer House at Callaway. I feel really bad for not taking pictures of the outside of our cabin. :(
Here are more pictures from Callaway.

The chapel. My aunt was married here.

I love the stained glass. So pretty.

The birds of prey show

The Butterfly House

The following day, we went to Wild Animal Safari. There is a zoo to walk around and a safari where you ride around and feed wild animals.

Cheeky Buffalo

This large animal would have eaten our entire cup of food!

The rhino couldn't get near us. He might charge. But, he was cool!

This guy is on vacation. Soon, he'll be heading back to help Santa.
Back to the zoo. It was later in the day and we pretty much had the entire zoo area to ourselves.

Ladies Retreat 2010

We ate here on River Street in Savannah. Very good chicken tenders. They are served with honey. Yum!

The people you meet on River Street...:)

Never know what you might see...a huge pumpkin,
A girl in a tissue paper dress...

Here was our room. I shared with Kelli.

The living area

Chilling on the back porch...We had a hot tub, too. So nice!

Tybee Beach pics. Some say this beach isn't pretty. I disagree.

This year's organizers Renee, Cheryl, & Suzy. It was the most laid-back, relaxing retreat I've been on.

Can't wait for next year!

Looks like you had a great time on your weekend getaway with Mike and Allyson. Love all the pics. The one of Mike and Allyson is really good. I had so much fun with you on the retreat. We had a great group. I'm so glad we all got to share a house together. Can't wait until next year.
