Visiting Huntsville

We came to visit our daughter in Huntsville, AL, on Friday afternoon. It is a 7 1/2 hour drive (with several stops). Friday was Kim's birthday so we went to dinner at TGIFridays. Today we went shopping over at a new mall on the other side of Redstone Arsenal. Whenever we get on the interstate to go anywhere, we always pass the US Space and Rocket Center. You can see this huge rocket with the American flag flying beside it from the interstate.


I call this shopping in the mountains. Indiana is so flat that anything that even remotely sticks up in the air looks like a mountain to me.

Do the mountains look more impressive from a distance???????
Before we went to this mall, we stopped and did a little shopping at Yarn Expressions. Kim bought me this gorgeous Koigu yarn for Mother's Day. There is enough for two pair of socks.
Then I bought a few skeins for another project that I have been working on. More on that later. The skein on the right is Malibrigo sock yarn so that will be used for a pair of socks. Storms are rolling in over Lady Ann Lake here by the apartment.

We head home tomorrow around noon. Happy Mother's Day to everyone.

LOL, I had a friend from Utah who was amazed at what we call mountains here in Alabama. She said, "Come to Utah and I will show you some REAL mountains!" LOL. I guess it is all relative, huh?
