Lest you think that our entire trip was spent laying around on country porches, here are a few photos from our day trip into Birmingham. This is the city where I was born and raised and it's always a treat to come back to visit. Our first stop upon arrival was the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The rose garden was in full bloom! It was a truly hot southern day with temperatures in the 90s. I'm not used to that anymore so I pretty much felt like I was melting the whole time.

No trip to B'ham is complete without a stop at The Garage. We're usually there at night to sit in the beer garden and drink a few Hoegaardens but this time we sat in the air conditioning to enjoy our sandwiches and sodas. After lunch we headed over to the Civil Rights Museum which doesn't allow any photography so I don't have any photos to show you, but it's definitely worth a stop if you're ever in town.
