We've had a great weekend, spending much of it outside and it's always so amazing to see the transformations our mental states under take with a bit of fresh air and sunshine - they both are good for the soul!
We had a play date with our good friends the Farrells and their little one, Wyatt (also known as "Cyatt" to CE). We cooked out and played - always so much fun! Thanks for coming over Farrells! I was only able to capture a few shots - we were too busy playing to take photos - so here are a few:
Taking a break from cooking to share some cookies (graham crackers)
Today (Sunday) after church, lunch and naps we finally ventured to Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham. All I can say is WOW! We've been missing out - this park has been open since late fall - but we plan to go as much as possible now. It's so hard to believe that this beautiful oasis was once a mud pit of sorts and where the Crawfish Festival was held for many years. I'm so glad the progressive leaders of Birmingham have turned this area into a fabulous green space - you have to see it to understand just how awesome it is!
We were there with literally hundreds of people - so if you live in Birmingham, this is just one more reason you need to get downtown!!
We met lots and lots of puppies
Quenching our thirst with Sonic ... oh yeah! Again, check out the backdrop of the city.
