Our Trip to Montgomery AL

We took our first trip to Montgomery since moving to Alabama last summer.

My husband had some business meetings so we tagged along.  In addition, we stopped and checked out some local food businesses such as the Conecuha sausage company.  They have samples in their gift shop; the boys tried them all.  I’m not much on sausage so I left the tasting to the experts.  When we got to Montgomery we had lunch at the farmer’s market then headed off to sight-see. 

Between the two days we spent there we did the following: saw the Capitol, visited the First White House of the Confederacy, watched the Montgomery Biscuits’ ballgame after eating dinner at Dreamland BBQ (the chicken BBQ potato was great), birdwatched, checked out the old towne section of the city, visited the Civil Rights Museum, ate at Martha’s (and I hope you do, the next time you visit Montgomery), hung out at the Hank Williams museum and made a pilgrimage to his gravesite.
