IN Birmingham

Well we made it to Birmingham with no problems.  We arrived around 11:10, got the rental car and luggage and was headed out by noon.  We at lunch at the Irondale cafe.  A train briefly came by and I immediately thought of Andrew.  I snapped a picture of it that I'll try to post later.  After that we came to the hotel and checked in.  We unpacked and rested a bit and then left to make a run to Walmart at 5:00.  I got some cokes and a few snacks.  We then went to dinner at Johnny Rockets.  Now I'm back at the hotel taking it easy.

It's very green here.  There's lots of trees.  It's hard to see things because of all the trees.  I like it, but it's just so different from what I'm used to.  

I'm tired.  It has been a long day of traveling.  I got up at 5:00 a.m. and I could go to bed now.  I think I might take a shower, watch some t.v. and call it an early night.  I'm going to church in the morning and then we have to register.  I have all the t-shirts to hand out to everyone so I've got to take those with me tomorrow.  

Not sure what we'll do the rest of the day tomorrow.  We might go to the civil rights institute.  I guess we'll play it by ear.  Hopefully now that summer is here I'll start posting regularly again.  Maybe I'll win a few of my readers back!

Our trees are so big and leafy this year because we've had so much rain. I don't know how I could live without them.

Guess what? I'm thinking of helping my husband clean out the garage tomorrow. Ha!

It took me a long time to get used to the trees when I lived in Alabama. It is so different from where I grew up.

Enjoy your time and I look forward to reading your posts!
