Our first stop was Charlemagne Records. We had a lot of fun sifting through old albums and cassettes and finding new releases as well. Daniel found a rare Beatles record (I think it was like $200!!), but most of the music there is incredibly reasonably priced. It is just a fun place to explore. The people who work there are so nice and will even special order music for you if you don't find what you're looking for. Daniel bought a John Coltrane CD and we enjoyed listening to that in the car on our way home.
The guys looking through some records..

As we headed further into Five Points we came across a beautiful church and a statue of Brother Bryan (there is a men's ministry named for him in Birmingham). We planned to explore the church a little bit, so I took this picture of the guys and we were going to head across the street.
While the guys were looking at the statue I looked across the street at the church. About that time I noticed that there were some guys who looked like they were about to get into a fight- and one was not wearing any pants. Soooo.... we cut our exploration short and went home. Hahaha! We often feel like country mice in the big city and afternoons like that are part of the reason why.
We really enjoyed having Jacob here for the weekend and can't wait for him to come visit again! The leaves here have changed and are so beautiful.. anyone want to come visit next?
