Savannah

Getting back to our road trip, which we started with a drive down to Charlotte and then a stop in Chimney Rock after which we headed down to Savannah. The next morning we started with a sublime breakfast at the Mirabelle Cafe. It was a beautiful day, we sat outside people watching and enjoying our food, the peach was everyone's favorite.



We didn't have a planned schedule, we hoped to just wander about enjoying the city and in all our enjoyment we ended up not taking many pictures. We also had a few hiccups. D had a bathroom accident, while in one of the squares something bit H's scalp and he ended up with so many itchy bumps in his hair which made him miserable. 




We had delicious taco's at Tequila Town, we walked up and down river street, visited the Colonia Park cemetery, the boys enjoy Pete the Cat art work in a City Market gallery. We stood in a long long line to get a scoop of ice cream from the infamous Leopold's Ice Cream. Very good and such interesting flavors though the very next day we ate even better ice cream in Charleston. 

We managed to have an almost good day with unfortunately far more downs than ups.. oh well.

Paperless Post

I have more travel posts coming.. I promise. Just haven't found the time to go through the rest of the pictures yet. Till then..

This post was sponsored by Anagram Interactive

I used to be one of those people who remembered everyone's birthday. I even had a card guy I visited regularly. And then came the internet and Facebook. Life got busier and it was just so much easier to write on someone's wall and now there are just so many ways to say Happy Birthday.. most not very personal. I miss the personal touch, the phone calls and the cards.

With Mother's Day coming up and my mom continents away I was thinking of something more than a phone call. The postal system back home sucks so sending something was out of the question. I wasn't really thinking that a card would do until I spotted this one.


I couldn't have said it better myself.. and I found this gem at Paperless Post. Paperless Post is the brain child of siblings James and Alexa Hirschfeld to prove that communication could be personal and well-designed regardless of the medium.

I spent sometime perusing their website.. wishing I had a party to plan so I could use some of their beautiful invitations. How about a surprise party?


or these totally cute kid's birthday invites.. they can all be easily customized and personalized with a change of font or text. You can even upload your own pictures.


Along with cards and invites they also have stationary and everything you may possibly need to plan the perfect wedding including programs, menu's etc all designed by the likes of Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Kate Spade and the list goes on..

And for the forgetful sort you can schedule your cards delivery so you never miss another birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day ever again. Speaking of Father's Day, they already have a large collection of cards available so you can get a head start on your shopping now. 


and something I loved, coming from an under represented minority.. they even had Ramadan cards.


Now let's talk money. They have a huge selection of free digital cards and invites. You can customize the text, schedule and send for free. But if you decide you want the extras like logo's, backdrops, digital envelopes then a small fee is added. Paperless Post uses it's own currency they call coins. You can purchase 20 coins for $6.00 and each card with all the bells and whistles cost about 2 - 3 coins, a great price considering the quality of the card/invite. 

But now the bit I wasn't too fond of.. if you decide you don't want to send a digital card but want to old school it with a paper card you can no longer use coins.. now it costs real money. Which isn't a deal breaker of course. Paperless Post mentions repeatedly don't buy coins first. See what you like, create the order and see how many if any coins you need before making that purchase. But mixing currencies, their own and the real kind to me just seems like work especially for the math illiterate like myself 

I'm going to go back to party planning while you check out Paperless Post for some inspiration yourself..

Chimney Rock North Carolina

The first stop on our trip was Charlotte but we did not have the time to actually explore the city. The time it took to get that far south from New Jersey and the time it would take to get back cost us two of our 9 vacation days.

Our second day was spent at the Chimney Rock State Park just outside of Asheville, near Lake Lure. The same lake where the water scene from Dirty Dancing was shot. Chimney Rock has over 6 different trails for all different skill levels and most very family friendly. We explored three different trails while we were there.

The first was the Great Woodland Adventure designed specifically for kids.




The second trail was Chimney Rock




There were a lot of steps.. over 400 but the boys were real good.. and the view was totally worth it. 


You can see Lake Lure from the top. 

We asked the boys if they were up for another hike and surprisingly they both said yes! The third hike was the Hickory Nut Falls Trail



After a very satisfying day we got into our car and started to head down to Savannah.

Driving Down to Charlotte North Carolina

I hate packing. I am a good packer, organized - list maker - think of every possible scenario - pack everything we would ever need without over packing.. and when I am in the midst of it it is a nerve wracking process.. hence the declaration.. I HATE PACKING!

Our initial drive down was over 10 hours long.. I packed the car with a variety of snacks, a bag of activities for each child and off we went early Saturday morning.



I found a great deal on Groupon for these activity tables and they were a life saver.. though don't let that picture of H fool you he looked nothing like that through most of the trip.. argh. I had a license plate game printable for D which was a big hit.. the whole family got involved in finding plates even when we weren't in the car. For H the winner was silly putty and when all hell broke loose play doh saved the day. 

We made pretty good time keeping our stops to a minimum at arrived in Charlotte at 8pm. As luck had it our room at a Marriott had a plumbing issue and they had no other rooms at the hotel available. Luckily being a rewards member they had arranged a larger room for us at another Marriott and our stay was fully comped :)  

We had dinner at the amazingly scrumptious Zablong




The boys especially loved being able to leave their mark on the wall. 

In the morning we went to Hazelnut Creperie for breakfast. It was a little odd.. a counter service style place in an office building, but the crepes were very good..so good we didn't even bother to take a picture.  




We stopped to take a picture with the mirror mosaic Firebird on Tryon St. before heading out to Chimney Rock.
