Weekend Wrap Up

Saturday, TC, my SIL, BIL, niece (K), and I headed up to Birmingham to the McWane Center.  We saw tons of cool stuff like an exhibit on Alabama dinosaurs, an exhibit on the Challenges spaceship, lots of fishes, and an IMAX movies about tornadoes.  K got to ride on a zip line, lay on a bed of nails, be an archaeologist, play in the weather lab, and lots other cool stuff.  We ate lunch at a little hot dog place near the McWane Center.  I had a Greek chicken salad and it was delicious.  After we finished at the McWane Center, we headed to the Summit to do a little shopping.  We browsed in Pottery Barn and Anthropologie. We ate dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and brought home a slice of cherry cheesecake.  Yummy!!  Enjoy the pictures!!

That Girl

I totally have a reason for not posting (even though I said I would).  Every time I try to upload pictures from my memory card, my computer freezes up.  And who like a post without pictures?  But, we did have a great Fourth of July.  We swam a lot and ate even more!!

I'm writing this more for my memory, although I'm sure my reader (hi mom!) will get a kick out of it. 

Our niece, K (6 years old) has learned the art of the prank call.  We were all over at TC's parent's house to eat dinner.  They have their house on the market.  So, she gets the idea to prank call and ask questions about the house. "How much is it for sale for?  Can I buy it?"  Her mom, on the other end of the phone, asks which house is she talking about.  From where I am in the living room, you can hear her say from her room "This one!"
That girl!! Where does she come up with this stuff??

Always an adventure!!  Did anything funny happen to you this weekend?
