On Saturday I got to do something I had never done before - go to the circus. Somehow I had missed this childhood rite of passage (although I do remember watching Circus of the Stars on TV which was awesome). My brother and I decided to make up for that missing piece of our childhood and take the kiddos to the "Greatest Show on Earth." I do have to say it was pretty awesome!!!

We still had a whole week of relaxing fun ahead of us once we got home on Monday. The week was full of playing, staying up late and having fun!! On Tuesday, we ran a bunch of errands that we needed to get done. To reward the kids for having a good attitude through the errands we went and played on the playground at Ben's school. It was a gorgeous day!!!!

Monday we woke up and checked out of the hotel before heading over to the Memphis zoo for one last adventure.

Sunday we set out to explore Memphis some more. Kate wasn't feeling great so she and I hung out at the hotel a little longer. Matt and Ben explored downtown Memphis including taking a tour of the pavilion at St. Jude. So glad that Ben got to see the amazing work they do there.

We have had a wonderful Spring Break and thankfully it is still going on! Matt had to be out of town for a meeting for part of the week but we still wanted to do something fun. We have pretty much exhausted most of the places about 2-3 hours away (Birmingham, Nashville, Atlanta, etc.). I did some research and decided a trip to Memphis might be fun. So on Saturday we packed up and headed out for a few days of fun.
Then we headed over to Graceland! Ben read an Elvis biography a few months ago and has been really interested in Elvis since then.
It is not all that impressive looking from the outside. Just a big house built in the 1930's.
The house is stuck in the 70's which makes it really fun to look at - carpet on the ceiling and crazy wallpaper on the walls. It was like a time capsule.
