Railroad Park and Parents Visit

Thursday for lunch Chad and I decided to both get out of the office and we went to Railroad Park. The Park makes up a 19 acre space in downtown Birmingham.

I am so lucky to have such a nice park within walking distance of where I work! Every Wednesday from 4-6 PM “Farm Stands on the Railroad” takes place and you can go purchase fresh, local produce. Thanks to Blue Cross and Blue Shield FREE classes are held weeknights at 6 PM at Railroad Park and hundreds of people attend:
Monday – Crunk Fitness
Tuesday – The BE FIT Group Experience
Wednesday – Zumba
Thursday – Yoga
Friday – Night PE


My parents came to visit this weekend and they brought my little dog MILLIE with them. I still say it’s my dog even though I got her in high school and when I left for college she stayed home.

I had Friday off of work and my parents came after lunch. We met Chad’s mom for an early dinner at Izzo’s at The Summit. It was the first time my parents met some of Chad’s family, but we think it went really well!

 I gave my mom tickets for us all to go see Joel Osteen together for her Mother’s Day present so after dinner mom, dad, Chad and I went to Joel Osteen ‘A Night of Faith’ at the BJCC. Joel Osteen is the pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas and he is watched by approximately 7 million Americans each week on TV. After watching him on TV, it was great to finally get to see him in person.


Saturday we woke up and took time to enjoy coffee and rented We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. I absolutely LOVED the movie!! Maggie Elizabeth Jones (Rosie) is adorable!!

We sat outside and enjoyed a relaxing lunch in the shade at O’Carrs before doing some antique shopping. Then unfortunately they packed up and headed back to Troy. It was a short visit, but great to spend some quality time with my parents and to show them around Birmingham.
