Shrimp & Grits Festival

You know you live in the south when there is a Shrimp & Grits Festival! LOL...
This festival was held on Georgia's Jekyll Island. I've wanted to go for a couple years now but have not made it for one reason or another until this year. 


Parking was at the local municipal airport & charter buses shuttled us all to the festivities, this was the boys' first time on a bus & they LOVED it!


We see these big chairs all over the place, the boys finally got a chance to climb up in one

There was a huge fun zone for the kids, the boys spent most of their time on this double slide

After bouncing & sliding to their little hearts content we headed off to find some shrimp & grits... We didn't make it very far though before the boys found some face painters & just had to be made into some super heros.

It had gotten quite hot and quite crowded at the festival by this time. It was very hard to navigate 3 kids through the crowds for food so we called it a day & headed back to our car. The boys enjoyed their front row view on the bus ride back to the parking lot.

Donna & I would have loved to have tried some of the local cuisine & we would have really enjoyed checking out the artisans at the festival. This is why I mentioned earlier that next year, we may leave the boys behind & go alone. We really do love taking them along but they are at an age that is difficult for shopping & sightseeing beyond children's events right now. It was a fun day for them though & I'm happy we finally made it to the festival.
