My mother visited for a few weeks. Her timing was perfect. The weather was crappy almost the entire time.
We did make a day trip down to North Carolina. We stopped at the Grave Digger (monster truck) garage. Mom picked up a book for my car/truck loving nephew and we got some pictures.We also hit some of the farmer markets and went out to eat at one of the local breweries.
The highlight of Mom's visit was probably seeing the winner for The Biggest Loser (Season 6) at the Botanical Gardens.
