My Weekend, in Snapshots

 To see my weekend, on instagram (follow me @eeelishalynn)

Left to right, top to bottom:

1) Fried Green Tomatoes at The Pit on Friday night! Aaron's parents drove down from Akron, OH to visit us this weekend so we had to show them Southern hospitality. What is a better way to do so than enjoying BBQ in Downtown Raleigh? It was delicious!

2) On Saturday morning we woke up early and went to the Downtown Durham Farmers Market. We bought cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, peaches, and gnarly garlic.

3) Local beer from Fullstream Brewery. After we tried their Carver Sweet Potato Ale at the Remedy Diner on the 4th of July, we knew that we had to try more. We bought a growler of the Summer Basil Ale and we can't wait to try it!

4) Aaron's parents admiring the aquarium at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. We decided to visit the museum on Saturday afternoon. There are two buildings and admission is free every day. There is so much to see there!

5) The terror of the South! After the museum we drove to Cary to see Beasts of the Southern Wild and then went across the street form dinner at Tom Yum Tai. It was my first time trying Tai food!

6) Celebrating Brittany's 25th birthday on Saturday night!

7) Judaica gallery at the NC Museum of Art on Sunday morning. The art museum is beautiful! Like the Museum of Natural Sciences there are multiple buildings, beautiful galleries,  and it is free!

8) Yum! A brie, raspberry preserves and ham grilled cheese at Relish on Sunday evening. After dinner we said farewell to Aaron's parents and came home to cuddle with Skwisgaar and watch the amazing closing ceremonies to the 2012 London Olympics. I am sad that the Olympics is over, but there is so much to look forward to in the next 4 years until the 2016 games in Rio!

What did you do this weekend?
