This weekend we traveled over to Savannah to visit with husband's family. It was his mother's birthday celebration (her birthday is really today - happy birthday frannycakes!). Luckily enough husband's sister, brother and wife, and grandparents were all able to come in as well! It was so nice to have everyone together.
Saturday we ventured over to Hilton Head for lunch. We ate at a place called The Crazy Crab - and it was delicious! Below you'll see one of my new favorite soups - She Crab Soup! Nom! I'm not really a shellfish-kinda-gal (or seafood gal, for that matter), but I love good She Crab soup. After lunch, the ladies headed over to the outlets for some serious shopping and the men went back to Savannah.
For dinner we went to Tybee Island to a place called The Crab Shack. Everyone generally goes there for a huge platter of Low Country Boil (you'll see the picture below). All the seafood you can image. I ate the corn, potatoes, and sausage - and a few pieces of shrimp. All dipped in melted butter.
After dinner we had a celebration back at the Jackson household. There was birthday cake, banana cake, doughnuts, cookies, and fudge. We all went into sugar comas shortly after "Happy Birthday."
Before cutting into the cake, we sang Happy Birthday. At the last birthday celebration husband volunteered to do an interpretive dance to the song. It was hilarious. Since it was such a hit, Frannycakes requested one for her special day. You'll see it in the video. I left the sound on for that portion and it's sped up -so we sound like the munchkins in the Wizard of Oz.Warning: when we all get together, we get silly. Enjoy!
