Weekend Adventures




My parents came down to visit for the weekend and we had so much fun wandering around and acting like tourist! We walked through all kinds of local shops and ate the best local food!! 

One of the first things my dad said to us when he found out we were moving was "you have to find the Vulcan". Chad and I both thought he was just joking, but sure enough this weekend we found the Vulcan! Birmingham is called the Magic City because it popped up like magic with an iron boom. The Vulcan statue is so cool and pays tribute to the industry that started it all here! We rode an elevator to the top (you could climb the stairs but it was sooo hot this weekend!) and from there you can see the whole city! It was so beautiful!! Luckily heights don't bother me, but if you aren't a fan then I would not recommend going all the way up- there are some great views from the grounds as well!! 

I hope you all had a great weekend! If you did anything cool I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
