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.

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!
