Let's Wrap This Up

So we come to end of our trip!
Kind of....we stopped in Mississippi to stay with our old next door neighbors. I lucked out when they moved next door - I made a great friend and so did my kids. Hers are ADORABLE and I cannot get over how well mannered and polite they are.
Little B came out to meet us and she was grinning until she saw Graham and then got a tad shy - it was cute.

But 5 minutes later they were all acting like best buddies again. I had a great time catching up with Cori and we stayed up WAY too late talking. But that's the fun part, right?

The next morning we were off to Memphis...
Welcome to the Blingdom...we aren't huge Elvis fans or anything but this was my first time to Memphis is 37 years so I figured I wouldn't be coming through again. Might as well go see Graceland.
There are some crazy weird fans. We saw a few crying. I so don't get that mentality, but oh well.
It was HOT. HUMID. STICKY. We were the youngest people there. With loud kids. Dan was a trooper but I sense some irritation in this photo.
I immediately picked out what was wrong with this wall. Can you see it? Impressive that the WHOLE racquetball court room was covered in these!
TV room with the mirrored ceilings.
Jungle room.

The boys LOVED the car museum and the airplanes. Pretty cool. We lost my favorite bow of Lauren's here. Booo. We saw a LOT of this type of place on our drive home.

And this is a place in Kansas (Home of the Ditch Witch) where your marriage might be in question if you are named Dan. I laugh now, but there was a minor "I've been in the car too long" meltdown on my part here.
Graham and Greg learned how to do this on the trip. They thought they were SOOO cool. Then Greg would tell us every 2 miles that he had to go to the bathroom, but "I need to do it on the SIDE of the ROAD."
But then we finally got back home to Utah and I was thrilled to see this. After all those car fights they still love each other! Dan and I still like each other 99.9% of the time and we are safe and sound!

It was quite the adventure but I am SO glad we did it!
