A Vacation Weekend in Birmingham

So on Saturday while Dave, Zach and Alex were at the Men's Gridiron Conference, Shane and I explored the Sheraton Hotel.  
What's there to do in the Sheraton Hotel?  Let's see . . .

This hotel had a couple of different levels connected by escalators.

So we spent a while riding up and down the escalators.  Fun.

Then we found an elevator that goes up the 16 floors of the hotel.  No big deal except this elevator goes up the 16 floors on the outside of the hotel with a glass wall.  Here's our view of the city of Birmingham from the glass elevator.

We went up and down in the glass elevator a few times.  :)

Then we decided to wait on Dave and the boys at the top of the stairs at the hotel entrance.  Shane was having fun being a daredevil at the top of the stairs.

He kept wanting me to take a picture of him with my camera phone.   :)

So once we met up with Dave and the boys, we headed for lunch at Dave's favorite place to eat in Birmingham . . . Joe's Crab Shack.
On the way to Joe's Crab Shack, we passed Chuck E. Cheese's . . . so Dave being the sweet daddy that he is . . . turned around and took us to Chuck E. Cheese's for lunch . . .

And for some fun play too.

After all, it's a place where a kid can be a kid!

And since this was Shane's first time, we had to get a special souvenir to remember this trip (or so that's what he said).

Boxing gloves and a punching bag . . . hmmmm . . . does that sound like a good idea to you?!  

I think Zach might've gotten socked in this next picture.

We had planned to go to the zoo, but we decided to spend the night and go to the zoo on Sunday instead.  So we got a one room suite (which means it had a bedroom and living area with a pull out sofa bed) and went to see a movie . . . 

This is not a typical girl movie, but then again, I don't live with any girls.  :)  Thank goodness I've seen all the X-Men movies or this movie would have made no sense to me.  It was great.  We loved it.  Now we can't wait for the new Transformers movie to come out!  It's definitely a boy world for me!

Next post will be about our trip to the Birmingham Zoo.  It's was so great and so much fun that it deserves a post of it's own from . . . 

                                 the Ferrell boys and me!
