We headed up to TN and MS for Spring break this year. We had lots of important people to visit. We left at midnight on Wednesday and stopped in LA to pick up Granny. We drove all night and arrived in Memphis, TN at 10am on Thursday. We had a full list of possible things we could do ahead of us. We checked into our hotel. It was really nice and right next to the Peabody hotel and right across the street from Autozone Park. We first decided the kids would enjoy seeing the ducks so we headed down the block to the Peabody. We had missed the ducks marching in (Maybe next time).
From there we were headed to Rendezvous BBQ to get some ribs. We got a little turned around and went the long way around when it was just down the block from the hotel as well. While we were there we found a new rib fan. Lady Bug loves ribs. Unfortunately the Boss who had really been looking forward to the ribs got a tummy ache and didn't eat.
The Boss wishing he felt better.

I think she liked them...
Once we left our lunch destination everyone was beat, but we decided to check out the ball park before we headed back to the hotel for naps.
Once everyone was rested it was time to start the visiting part of our trip. We headed to my college roommate's house. I couldn't wait to see her little girl. She is just the cutest thing. She has the sweetest cheeks you just want to squeeze them like Charmin. I was so looking forward to meeting her finally and to catching up with Butter and her husband. I was so excited about our visit that I forgot my camera and don't have a single picture of us all together. We hung out and ate pizza. The Boss watched a little TV while the two little girls played with toys. We didn't realize it had been so long since we had seen eachother until we were there and comparing stories. It had been 8 years...Since Butter and John had gotten married in Memphis. Time really does fly. They were so sweet to have us over for dinner. We could have stayed all night but they both had work the next day so we headed back to the hotel. The kids both crashed in the car on the way back so we drove around a little to take in the sights of downtown Memphis at night. One of our favorite sights was the Giant M...wonder why?
We then got the kids in bed and Granny said she would watch them while we went out and had some adult time.
So we headed out to Beale St. and enjoyed a little of the night life with a piano bar. This day was a great start to our trip.
