Tuesday night my in-laws came in, bringing with them my husband's uncle and lady friend (LF) from Copenhagen. We spent a week with them last year in Denmark and had the time of our lives! They were such good tour guides, and we hit the town running when we got there. Husband's family had lost contact with uncle, but, if I'm not mistaken, someone got back in touch with him through Facebook. BIL & his wife went to Cph for a couple of days a few weeks before we went. Now they're here! They landed in Atlanta, then went to my in-laws for a few days. They stopped by on their way to see more of the Southeastern U.S. The bad news is that we only had 1 day to show them the highlights of our area. Not enough time at all. It was hard deciding where to take them in just 1 day. I knew uncle enjoys history, and there is something very secretive about a town not too far away from us. So, we spent the morning in the museum there, went to lunch, and then hit Party City! LF was in awe! I think she could've spent hours in there if we let her! But, we had a big decision to make: downtown in the big city, or the mountains. LF made a decision and said mountains. A lot of riding in the car, but I think it was worth it to them. We saw over 20 deer, wild turkeys, and, to top it off, they got to see their first black bear in its natural habitat! (And, no, we did not get out of the car!) As we were driving out, they also got to see a coyote.
Here's a picture of us in Denmark last year:
