An Impromptu Field-Trip
After achievement tests and a totally unplanned lunch at Backyard Burger with daddy, we took a spontaneous trip down the road to Tupelo, Mississippi! We decided we needed some new Easter duds and headed out! This had to be a whirl-wind trip because we were leaving town at noon and had to be back in town by 6 pm. We had a fine time shopping for new spring clothes--well, except that time in the dressing room when I had to face the fact that I needed a larger size in my dress--you can only suck in so far, you know!On the way there we pulled off at the Elvis birthplace exit. I am such an Elvis fan and I know it is not hip and cool to be an Elvis fan, but I can't help it. It's in my genes. K is a big fan too, only she prefers to keep it a secret--oops, guess I screwed that up! Sorry K.
This is a beautiful fountain they had. I took a picture of the kids sitting in front of it, but A had a terrible look on his face, so I had mercy and posted this picture instead!
Here is a redeeming photo of A shaking hands with the Elvis statue. This supposedly depicts Elvis at age 13. It could have been anyone really.
This is the teeny tiny house Elvis was born and raised in! You would not believe how little it is! He really came from meager beginnings.
We had such a nice time and we left with the kids asking to go to Graceland! My hubby and I went last summer--the day after Pres. Bush went with that Japanese dude-Yes I am up on my politics ;) ! I would love to take the children sometime and we have no excuse, since we live so close by!
Have a great day y'all!
