Hunter Hayes/Carrie Underwood Concert

Olivia's friend Kit just celebrated her 11th birthday.  Part of her celebration included the Hunter Hayes/Carrie Underwood concert at Colonial Life Arena.  The girls have been looking forward to the concert since Christmas!

Sweet friends waiting to enter the arena.

We were lucky enough to have a box right near the stage.  After we got settled in the suite, the girls shopped for t-shirts and immediately put them on.  Once Hunter Hayes sang a few songs, he started thanking everyone for being there, etc.  Our girls shouted at the top of their lungs, "We love you, Hunter!"  And, he stopped mid-sentence and turned toward us and said, "I don't know who said that, but I love you, too!"  The girls went craaaaazy!

And, a shot of all the mamas.

Spring Break - Fort Frederica

I have been going to St. Simons for more years than I can count and don't think I've ever been to Fort Frederica.  So, Will, Pop, Mac and I left the girls at home with Nanoo and headed over there on Saturday afternoon.  

Our first stop was the Bloody Marsh where the British defeated the Spanish forces.  McIver thought the name of the marsh was pretty cool and was intrigued that the Spanish only reported losing eight soldiers.  Doesn't seem like that would cause enough blood for the name Bloody Marsh, but who are we to question history!?

Then, we headed over to the actual Fort which was a military outpost established to protect Georgia from the Spanish military in Florida.  It was a beautiful piece of land with many remnants left over from the fort.  Pop, Will and Mac posed for a picture in front of the spot where the doctor's house/office was located.

Spring Break in St. Simons

Rode bikes to the Village yesterday with Pop. After a quick (because that breeze was cooooold!) walk around the pier, we went to ZuZu's for ice cream, then did a little t-shirt shopping. Poor McIver has really outgrown his bike...he had to pedal about seven times more than the rest of us. But, we were just really glad to have another pretty day. It looks like tomorrow might be a washout.

Looking out toward Jekyll Island.
