A day of fun with Dad

Racing at Railroad Park, originally uploaded by MCuthbert.

Since was off work for Veterans Day, the girls and I devised a day of fun activities.

We started off with a snack at Culinard Cafe while we waited for Misty's mom at the doctor's office. Once we dropped her back at her home, we went out to explore the new Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham. We played on the playground, watched some kids skateboarding, threw a frisbee back and forth (Emily caught it three times! She was so proud), and listened to a couple of guys play bluegrass music. Next we headed to the McWane Science Center where we played in "Just Mice Size" and checked out the model train exhibit. We finished up with lunch at Rojo where we ate on the patio under their year-round Christmas lights.

I'd hoped to take the girls to the Veterans Day parade, but lunch lasted longer than I'd expected. They wanted to keep going to the zoo and Wald Park playground afterward, but it was time for a nap.

Here are a few more photos from our outing.
