My brother-in-law and niece are in town this week. He came for the SEC Baseball Tournament at the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. She has no interest in baseball, so she and I will be exploring Birmingham.
If you read yesterday’s post, you know we got lost. Today we started out by getting locked out of the house before we could even leave the driveway. I had switched my purses and grabbed the wrong keys. JUST AFTER closing the locked door behind me I realized I had the husband’s car keys, and no house keys to get back in. The guys had just left for breakfast at the Egg & I, so we had no other choice but to sit on the back porch and wait. The shade was nice. I had tried all my windows, so at least I know now that my house isn’t easy to break into.
The worst part was we were headed to Maylene (a spot in the road) to pick up my pastor’s son for a belated Birthday Breakfast. We finally got there about 10am, and then headed to Panera Bread in Alabaster to enjoy our breakfast and celebrate Gabriel turning 10, then head to the Dollar Tree and Books a Million.
The niece and I then went to Helena (which has one of the lowest crime rates in the US), strolled down to Buck Creek Park to check out the dam, then walked the block of nearby Old Town shops.
Tonight we sleep, for tomorrow we hike again. 🙂
