A couple weeks ago the girls and I took a spontaneous road trip to visit James. Our weekend road trip to Hoover, Alabama was so fun. I had no clue Alabama was so beautiful! I mean it’s gorgeous and full of amazing views. We had a blast! Today, I thought I would share some of the photos from our trip.
On Saturday, we spent the day hiking over 8 miles at Moss Rock Preserve. We also did a little climbing. 🙂

On Sunday morning, we walked around the gorgeous Aldridge Gardens. This place has is all! Beautiful scenery with picturesque landscapes and fun art, wildlife, a fairy garden for kids to build in, and lovely trails to stroll on.
Ducks, turtles, and geese were some of the animals we saw in Aldridge Gardens. We saw 3 mated pairs of geese including one still nesting.
The girls adored this rabbit statue. They tried to give him bunny ears but it didn’t work out so well.
The Fairy Garden rules were posted on this sign. So cute! The girls’ (and I) built a fairy house. Cakey and Doodles loved this totem pole.
After we left Aldridge Gardens, we drove out to English Village in Mountain Brook for lunch and went to Vulcan Park and museum. We played Restaurant Roulette and ended up having lunch at La Catrina Mexican Cantina in English Village.
James is currently writing a story whose fire and forgery god is based off of Vulcan from Roman Mythology. We had to stop at Vulcan Park and Museum to see the giant statue of Vulcan.
After leaving Vulcan Park, we went to a playground so the girls could run and finally we stopped back at Moss Rock Preserve so I could see Hole in the Rock.
On the way home on Monday, the girls and I stopped at Bicentennial Park in Troy, Alabama.
Have a blessed day!
