We have been going hard basically since we left Canada so by the time we got to Memphis a couple of the kids were getting the sniffles and were overall just tired. So we did a little more relaxing this week and a little less touring.

We had a very nice relaxing stroll along the Mississippi and a picnic lunch.

Thanks to the ASTC program we checked out the Pink Palace Museumย which was so fascinating. We took lots of pictures of the information because after about the first hour the kids start to lose interest.ย  After some lunch and a little recharge we went to the huge Big Bass Pro shop, it is just crazy how big this store is.

We also took a day to just play at the park, we found this wonderful park and the kids made friends with a few kids there. I love days like this because we met a few locals and learn a little more in depth information about the place we are visiting. And this park was probably the coolest we have been to.

Brian took the morning off one morning and went to Graceland, he really enjoyed it and was able to actually go at a slower pace and take in the entire Elvis experience.

On our last day we took the kids down to Beale street, checked out some shops, listened to some blues and then had a picnic supper and watched the sunset on the Mississippi River.

Memphis was a beauty but its time to hit the road and discover the next adventure.
