For once, I had a busy weekend! Thanks to Sheena and her contest-winning luck, I went to Art on the Rocks at the Birmingham Museum of Art. Here’s one thing we were looking forward to:
We thought drinks were included in our ticket, but we were very wrong. Tiny cocktails were $8, so we both got only 1. They were delicious, but they weren’t big enough. Thankfully, Sheena brought along her flask of bourbon! That’s what you see pictured above. We also found out how small Sheena’s flask was. Now, we know. Here’s us at the party with Leslie:
I’ve never known a photo booth to not have a countdown or something so you know when the picture will be made, so I blew our opportunity for good pictures all except this one. We had food, looked at art, laughed at people, and had a fun friend date. All in all, it was a success!
On our way home, we went the spontaneous route and stopped by the Rainbow Tunnel by Railroad Park for some photo ops. Here are my faves:
On Saturday, Brian, Cora & I went out to eat breakfast at Dimitri’s. It was great! We saw tons of people we knew there, and that is one reason I love going there on Saturday mornings. After breakfast, we came home and let Cora play in her pool. That is always quite the show. She napped, and so did I! It was great. We went out to dinner at Longhorn! It was deeee-licious, and Cora ate really well and was so cute with other people there. We hung outside the restaurant after we were done eating so she could look at the flowers and play in the rocks by the waiting area outside. After she went to bed, Brian & I watched the 4th Harry Potter movie (goblet of Fire). It wasn’t my favorite one ever, but it was good.
Sunday was church! It was a good service with a great sermon, and I had fun singing. Cora fell asleep as soon as the service started in Phella’s arms, and it was so cute! She needed a nap, and I could tell Phella loved having her sleeping in her arms. She woke up at the perfect time right before church was over. The best part was that it meant we could go eat lunch at Five Guys! We figured we’d have to go straight home and put her to bed before we knew the nap was going to happen. Lunch was yummy, and Cora did great again. She’s so good at restaurants because she loves watching people and interacting with them. After lunch, Cora took a LONG nap. When she woke up, we headed to Brian’s parents’ because Ann was back in town, so we all got takeout so Cora could play with toys. Sunday was a long & tiring day, but it was good.
Yay for good weekends!
