Frosty Treat

At Persimmon Café in Charleston, S.C., Buddy's family dug into several frozen concoctions, including this White Chocolate Cookies & Cream custard. It was Buddy and Lisa versus their children, as the adults tried to sample the kids' treats.

Where There's Buddy, There's Cake

Leave it to cake-baker extraordinaire Buddy to find the sweetest creation in Savannah. He and two of his sons stopped by LuLu's Chocolate Bar, where, after tasting the eatery's Strawberry Suspension Cake, Buddy headed into the kitchen to create a cake all his own, just for his wife.

Not Too Crabby

On Tybee Island, Ga., a seaside locale near Savannah, it was only right to indulge in seafood. That meant plenty of succulent crab and crawfish from Crab Shack.

Have Camera, Will Travel

Lisa was sure to capture all the action of the road trip, including the family visit to The Wilkes House for brunch.
