The Watsons go to Birmingham

We are off on another road trip to visit one of my dearest friends from California, she is down in Birmingham, AL for a family reunion, so of course we can drive the 3 hours to go see her. I try not to let a learning opportunity pass us by, so we did a history walk and visited one of our favorite zoos: Birmingham Zoo.

Temptations memorial downtown.

Hanging out at the park with a good friend for a special
"Nelson Mandela Day"

At Nelson Mandela Day we saw some really great poets, one of the poets did the same poem that is on the youtube video. Of course it was better in person. The energy of the crowd was awesome. We also met a cousin of Nelson Mandela, experienced some beautiful South African dancing, and just had a great time in BAMA.
