This weekend, we decided to take a trip to see our first Mayberry day. This is our second trip to visit Mt. Airy the first one was here.
Andy Griffith must be a family thing because his cousin is even crazier about the show. What a great way to spend time with family. We meet them at his parents farm house which wasn't far from Mt. Airy... about a 30 minute drive.
We got there Friday afternoon and went to Mt. Airy for a couple of hours. Because it was Friday there wasn't much going on. Basically, we just walked around the town and visited the courthouse. Spending the night at the farm house was great. We really enjoyed the hospitability of my husband's Aunt and Uncle. We slept so good. I just love the feeling of the mountains and the quietness of the farm. They have such a nice and warm, welcoming family. Life in the country reminds me of my the times I visited my grandma as a child.

My husband wasn't really impressed with Mayberry days. They don't put very much into it. For me it's a very basic festival. I think because this show is getting old or is it just me. But we still enjoyed our weekend and had a great time with the family.
