The Olde Pink House

When you have daughters, pink is like an explosion all over your house. It's in your hair, on your arms, in your clothes, on the bottom of your feet. It's in the form of hair clips, play-doh, stickers, accessories, E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
And, if that wasn't enough, it's also the one and only restaurant we ate at for dinner in Georgia whilst on vacation. There are two reasons. One, dad-in-law cooks so well, there is never a need to eat out because the dining experience would pale in comparison. Two, with children, why put yourself through misery. Oh, and the unmentioned third reason? That was one of the only "kid friendly" restaurants listed on Yelp.

All in all, good experience. House was built in 1771, (for more info., click here), located in the heart of Savannah near a beautiful park, and the staff were sooooo gracious. We really enjoyed it. I'm reminded by my spouse reading over my shoulder as I type (ahem) that the Declaration of Independence was first read aloud from these steps, when it belonged to someone named Habersham. It was also a bank, at one point.
Savannah beckons historians, or shallow tourists like me. After dinner we strolled along the old town district. Why does everyone here have a ghost story? They even have a "ghost" tour bus. Charming and warm enough for the beach (even in March), if you haven't been to Savannah, it's worth the trip! Whether you want to get in touch with your intellectual side, or shallow side!
