I did something unusual yesterday. I went on a Mother-Daughter Outing.
What's so unusual about that, you might ask?
It wasn't me and Sarah, it was me and my mother!
About a month ago, we read in our local newspaper about an exhibit that was currently being shown at the Discovery Place Museum in Charlotte.
The exhibit was "A Day in Pompeii". And they were showing many different types of artifacts that had been uncovered in the ruins at Pompeii.
The minute I read the article, I knew I wanted to go. I have been fascinated with Pompeii since learning about the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in elementary school.
The minute she read the article, she knew she wanted to go.
So, we went together and made a day of it!
After we looked at all the artifacts and the chilling molds made from all the holes left by the bodies that had been covered in lava and ash, we made a Target run and we had lunch together at wonderful restaurant near my old house.
A cool museum exhibit. Target. Lunch. My mom.
Can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday!
