Old Alabama Town field trip

      Our homeschool group went on a field trip to Old Alabama Town. This is a place that will take you back to what Alabama looked like many decades ago. Back in the day….meaning 4th grade……I went on this same field trip. It's funny the things you remember from your childhood. I can remember a field trip once to a store but can't remember Old Alabama Town. In my defense, there was a tornado that day so that may why. 

Ella participated in a class that morning where she was taught many skills such as candle making, etc. Laney and I met up with the group after lunch for the tour. As many times as I have heard or visited places from long ago, I find it intriguing! Although I enjoy some of the modern day conveniences, I think it would be nice to live during a period where it's not so tech savy and busy.

Here are some of the things we saw during the tour.

AU vs USC Game

So……... I was going to come back from being absent(about a month) with a great post on why. Since I would like to have 1 more picture to include with it, you will just to have to hold on to your curiosity for a little longer. Meanwhile, I have plenty of catching up to do!

 We all know the outcome of the AU vs USC so I will not go into details about the final score and who won. The important thing is we went, had fun and still love each other. In case you are new here, I am an AU fan and my husband is an USC fan. Since my parents have an RV spot for the games, we met there for tailgating.

My dad fixed these hamburgers………

They were huge but good!

The place has a common area with a pool table. I think this was Laney's first time playing. It was a little obvious when she tried to shoot with the wrong end of the pool stick.

You will notice that Laney is wearing her AU shirt. It was her decision to wear it. I do not force my children to pick my team. I do buy their clothes however! 

Laney is smart though! 
She found a way to please both of us! At halftime, she switched shirts.

Apparently…….someone else has done a little shopping!

This little guy didn't come to the game but he was so cute in his AU attire!!!!
