Mom & Dad Logan came to town!

A few weeks back we had the privilege of having Mom & Dad Logan come for a weekend visit! We really enjoyed that special time with them and appreciated them driving to see us, sleeping on an air mattress, and sharing a tiny bathroom. That is true love!

When they arrived on Saturday we headed over to Moss Rock Preserve in Hoover which turned out to only be about 10 minutes from our apartment. A friend of mine recommended this park and I'm so glad we took the time to explore it! It was hard to believe that such a beautiful, grand park could only be a few minutes from a busy city highway. Truly a diamond in the rough.

We explored for a bit and then found a nice, flat rock to sit on to eat our picnic lunch.

After lunch we had fun exploring and hiking and all really enjoyed that time out in God's great creation.

Isn't he cute??
Once we had worn ourselves out from walking around we headed back towards home where we stopped at the Library in the Forest (the awesome library just up the road from our apartment). I know I had to have sounded like a total nerd to suggest taking my parents-in-love to the library, but it is just too cool not to share! I have to admit that I go there at least once a week. (My Sunday afternoon routine usually involves taking a nap and then spending a good bit of time at the library..). Once we got to the library we had fun showing them around and ended up renting some DVD's to watch that night after supper.

We had a good dinner together and afterwards we all retreated to the living room to watch one of the movies that we rented. We ended up picking Out of Africa. It was an excellent movie! Spoiler alert: it was a little bit sad, but it really was a great movie with excellent acting, beautiful scenery and exotic animals. Despite the feeling of melancholy after watching the movie I think we all enjoyed it overall.

We are so grateful for that time we got to have together with Mom & Dad Logan! We love having family come stay with us. It was a fun weekend filled with great memories!
