We enjoyed a visit with my family the weekend after Easter. After some time visiting family in Georgia, they were able to see us on the way back to Zion. John’s class hit the flight line that week, so while we didn’t see much of him, we made the most of our time together.
We walked around historic downtown Columbus admiring old buildings, budding flowers and sipping cool drinks from Coffee House on 5th….except Anna. She’s a bear.
We wandered through a few antique shops, of which there are MANY here. It’s a shame antiques have become so trendy. My parents bought and refinished our baby furniture from an antique store back in day and I’m certain they didn’t pay anywhere near what these stores are asking!
We passed by the first home of Tennessee Williams, Columbus’ claim to fame. I don’t think the Pulitzer-prize winning playwright actually lived in this house very long, but it still seems to be a big deal around here.
Possum Town Stranglers, anyone?
The girls loved on Kaia and my dad enjoyed several walks around the neighborhood with his “grandpuppy”.
Who needs stickers when you can show off your family in pollen? So thankful we don’t have allergies!
On their last night here, we enjoyed Hanks BBQ for dinner and watched “Wreck-It Ralph” with chocolate chip cookies.
The first cockroach of the season (in our house, at least) was smote by my rubber band-wielding father. Thanks, Dad.
All in all, good visit!
